We occasionally use metal molds and we clean them after every use.  We do this by putting them into the tissue processor with the dirty rack during the clean cycle.

 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?
