Place the silicone pan in your kitchen sink. Fill the sink with warm water and add at least a tbsp. of liquid dish detergent.
Allow the silicone pan to soak in the warm soapy water for 15 minutes to half an hour. Longer should not be necessary--food will rarely stick to silicone in the way food can stick to metal or glass.
Use a soft, clean sponge to wipe the inside and outside of the pan. Abrasive scrubbing sponges aren't recommended, as they can damage the silicone.
Let the water out of the sink and rinse the pan under warm water. If any food remains on the pan, sprinkle a little baking soda (about a tsp.) on a wet sponge and lightly rub this over the area. You can also use baking soda whenever these pans require a deeper cleaning than detergent provides.
