How to clean Sinchies
We’ve had a few enquiries on how to wash and dry Sinchies reusable food pouches. So we asked some of the Sinchies fans. Here are some comments from facebook likers:-
From Claire: I dry mine by sticking them over the handle of the potato masher to keep them open
From Elly: I leave mine to dry on the bottle dryer (prongs), then store in fridge
From Ash: I dry mine over some spoons in a mug
From Brooke: I use an undies line 😉 Hang them up on the pegs and pop them in a ventilated area
From Aleata: Scewers in a mug works a treat for me! I have 3 girls so we use about 20 Sinchies a week
From Alison: Put a scrunched up piece of paper towel inside and leave them upside down on the drying rack
From Sinchies HQ: We use a Sinchies drying rack here at HQ or if that’s occupied, we place them in the freezer. It’s not often they need to dry tho as we usually fill them up right away.
From Emma: Bottle brush here
From Rebecca: Bottle brush for the pouch and the bottle teat brush for the spout.
From Ashleigh: If there’s yoghurt dried in there from being in the lunchbox all day I rinse it under the tap with a drop of dishwashing liquid, and rub the sides together. Then it goes in the dishwasher
From Sarah: I rinse through the spout, then clean them with tupperware small bottle brush
From Alison: As I tend to have 10+ going at once (5 kids!!) I found unfortunately the dishwasher wasn’t that great, but a bit of warm water and detergent, pop the lid back on and give a little shake… Then to dry, put a scrunched up piece of paper towel inside and leave them upside down on the drying rack… Otherwise they get smelly if they don’t dry properly and mine often get left in lunch boxes with yoghurt remnants inside!!!
From Cassandra: bottle brush, then into the sterilising bucket, rinsed then semi dried, then into the fridge until filled
From Kerry: I just use a baby bottle brush then dishwasher
From Katie: Hot soapy water and bottle brush then the stubborn bits I use a skewer to dig out the bits in side zip seal…. I always leave them undone and not in airtight container
From Missy: I got one of the bottle brush things and it’s so easy!
From Sinchies HQ: We use a Sinchies cleaning brush aka bottle brush with a twisting motion to get right down the bottom of the pouch. We love that Sinchies are all made clear so we can see for cleaning purposes – we’d hate to contaminate a little persons food!
