My question is: how can I get flat food silicone bags completely dry? (I am talking about silicone bags that are small, flat, and rectangular, similar to the ziploc sandwich bags of pre-eco-aware days.)
When I wash the flat silicone bags and leave them to dry on the drying rack, the inside corners don't dry properly and then develop mould when stored.
Context: I live in the UK (a mostly cold and humid country), and my kitchen does not have heating so it is usually cold and humid there. Leaving the storage bags out in the sun isn't an option, and using towels/paper towels doesn't work well (they leave fluff + don't fully reach the inside corners). The bags are designed not to turn inside out; doing so damages them.
The purpose of using silicone storage bags is
- to avoid single-use plastics (so I would prefer solutions that limit unnecessary waste such as paper towels)
- to maximise storage (I have a small fridge/freezer so I can't just replace them with food boxes)
One of the types of food I use them for is soup, so it's important that the inside be fully clean.
