We don't clean them after each use, but we do put them in the oven (in a filter over a container) so the wax melts.  Every so often, not sure of the frequency, we clean in CitriSolv (our solvent instead of Xylene).

I clean them about every 10 days or so.  I run them through the cleaning cycle on my VIP 5.

OK folks, I know I should be smarter than this and I haven't seen
discussion on it lately.... 

Are people cleaning their metal embedding molds after evey embedding

If not, how often do you clean them? 

Do you clean them at all?

If you clean them, how do you do it?
