Cleaning old metal chocolate molds

Recommended Posts

I received this cat mold from a friend but have no idea how to clean it without scratching it.  I tried warm soapy water with a sponge, but it's still got gunk on the inside and is still pretty tarnished on the outside.  Does anyone know?  Thanks!

I would take a heat gun (hair dryer) to it and gently heat it, then wipe out the inside with a soft microfiber cloth or cotton swap/ball.  Then some alcohol.

Yup - what @RobertM says - not seeing any rust that needs removal. Outside will always look a little tarnished as part of the charm
