Why Silicone?

Silicone is the miracle component that makes We Might Be Tiny products the versatile and durable wonders they are.

No other material is food-safe and BPA-free while feeling at home in freezing temperatures and soaring heat.

And the best part is that you are directly contributing to saving the planet by using products made from natural materials while reducing waste.

Three cheers to you!

We purposefully design our products to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life and beyond, so you don't have to worry about them falling apart after a few uses! And the best part? They can be passed down between children and generations ā€“ even with the roughest of toddlers (and we know how wild they can be šŸ˜œ).Ā 

However,Ā even the toughest cookies need a little TLC sometimes. That's why we recommend followingĀ our care instructions below.

Cleaning

  • BeforeĀ first use, wash the product in warm soapy water andĀ rinse thoroughly.
  • After each use, wash the product in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly to remove any soap residue.
  • Use a mild detergent, avoidingĀ anything overly fragrant.Ā 
  • Avoid usingĀ abrasive sponges or harsh cleaning agents, as they can damage the product.
  • Avoid contact with sharp knives or objects.
  • Certain foods and liquids can stain silicone products, such as tomato-based sauces or brightly coloured juices. To prevent staining, we recommend cleaning promptly after use.
  • To remove any stains or discolouration, mix a small amount of baking soda with warm water to create a paste, apply it to the stained area, and let it sit for a few hours before rinsing it off. Direct sunlight can also help lift any discolouration from silicone.Ā 

Heating

  • Our 100% silicone products are microwave, oven and airfryer safe in temperatures up to 230ĀŗC.Ā 
  • Do not putĀ stainless steel components in the microwave, oven or airfryer.
  • Do not put reusable plastic icy pole sticks in the microwave, oven or airfryer.

Freezing

  • Our silicone products are freezer-safe to -40ĀŗC, but it's important to ensure that the product is completely dry before placing it in the freezer.
  • Avoid sudden temperature changes by allowing the product to cool down before placing it in the freezer.
  • To prevent freezer burn, we recommend transferring frozen food or liquid to an air-tight container or freezer bag.Ā 
  • When transferring the food or liquid, be sure to label the container or bag with the date of freezing, so you can keep track of how long it has been stored. We recommend using the frozen food or liquid within 3 months to ensure the best quality.

Storing

  • Store your We Might Be Tiny product in a cool, dry place. Do not store it in direct sunlight or near a heat source, as this can damage the product.
  • Avoid storing silicone products with plastic to avoid any absorption of smells. Silicone is a non-porous material that does not absorb smells, but plastic products can absorb smells from other foods and liquids stored in them. Storing silicone products alongside plastic products can result in the silicone product taking on an unpleasant odour.

Safety warnings

  • Always use products withĀ adult supervision.
  • Avoid sharp knives with silicone products.
  • Before each use, inspect the product. Throw away at the first sign of damage or weakness.
  • Always check food temperature before feeding. Hot food may cause burns. Heating in a microwave may produce localised high temperatures. Always stir heated food to ensure even heat distribution and test the temperature before serving.
  • Keep all components not in use out of reach of children.
