Hi Mrsredsie: I'd just use warm water and dish soap. Unless they are painted or metal, then I'd use some baby oil to clean them off. Good luck
Dish soap and water and a toothbrush should do the trick. Lay upside down on a tea cloth or kitchen roll tissue to dry..........
Warm soapy water will work well. Just don't let them soak for an indefinite period of time if they are metal. Dawn dishwashing soap would work well, then rinse, rinse with clear water and let them dry well on a soft clean cloth. If really dirty, use a soft brush to clean intricate details.
I wash them by hand a few at a time and rinse them in a strainer. Don't let them soak. Air dry on a towel or mat. I use liquid hand soap. Good luck and stay safe!
I would use a mild dish soap. Soak them for a little while then let them air dry on a towel.
I would rinse them with warm water and air dry them
Hello Mrsresie, soak in a mild mixture of water and dish soap or Mr clean, rinse and pat dry with paper towel
