    Freezer Funk on Silicone Ice Cube Tray

    I have a big block ice cube tray made from silicone that had taken on a really strong freezer odor. I tried washing with dish soap, dishwasher soap, soaking with baking soda, soaking in vinegar - nothing made a difference. Today I found an article on Cooks Illustrated instructing to bake it at 350 for an hour. I couldn't believe how well it worked. There is no trace of freezer odor left.

    I've read complaints from Instant Pot owners about the gasket taking on food odors. I haven't tried this on my IP gasket, but it might work the same for those food odors.

    The article is linked above if you want to check it out. There is another link in the lower right of the Cooks article for deodorizing cast iron after cooking fish that some might find helpful.

          I definitely get an after taste with the silicon tray I use for bourbon rocks. Will have to give this a shot.

          Thanks for posting.
