I use silicone spatulas for a lot of things. They're especially nice for scrambled eggs in a nonstick skillet. However, over the years, they've taken on a really nasty soapy taste. Now my eggs taste like soap.
Is there a way to prevent silicone from inheriting nasty tastes? Is there a way to remove the taste? Someone told me that I should buy "platinum grade" silicone spatulas because they don't have this problem. Is that true?
Edit: I usually wash them in a dishwasher with Cascade Complete powder or Cascade Platinum pods. I use a rinse aid as well. I sometimes wash them by hand with blue Dawn detergent.
