If you've used ceramic tiles as a working or baking surface for very long, then you've probably had to clean them. It's easy enough to use an alcohol-soaked paper towel to wipe off surface dust, and even baked-on clay remnants can usually be scraped off with a fingernail. But if you've ever tried to clean up baked-on liquid clay or embossing powders, you know it can be a bit of a challenge.
Here's a quick tip: Use a scraper made for ceramic oven tops to clean those tiles. Any sharp blade will work, actually, though you don't want to mess up your good clay blade for a cleaning job.The nice thing about the oven scrapers is they're inexpensive and safe to use. It just takes a minute to scrape off the cooked-on stuff, which you can then wipe away with a damp paper towel. Easy as that!
