Tips and bags are essential to any decorating outfit, but they cannot be laid flat to dry and cloth and vinyl do not towel dry very easily. These drying racks help speed up the drying process after the bags and tips have been thoroughly washed. After being used to create an amazing cake or a delectable cookie, bags and tips need to be thoroughly washed and dried. They cannot be put through the dishwasher, but the process of cleaning them is fairly simple. Using a clean cloth and warm, soapy water, scrub the inside and outside of the bag and then hang it to dry. Repeat the process with each one of the tips as well as the connector. Allow the pieces to air dry completely before using again or else the next batch of frosting could end up watered down and runny.
