RE: Cleaning of metal Base molds

From:"DeLovino, Salvacion S."

We actually put our molds and metal lids in the processor when doing the
clean cycle. So it goes thru a xylene rinse and then absolute alcohol. After
the clean cycle, we just take the molds out and let it air dry, ready for
the next day. Works great!
