    This ateco brush is amazing. Its the perfect size for small and medium tips. The brush fits snugly in the tip so it washes very well.

    Perfect size

    I purchased this to replace the one fro. Wiltons that I lost. While it is a good brush I do wish the bristles went all the way to the very end. I use a lot of size 0 and 1 tips and this doesn't clean the very end very well

    from Naples Confectionery Posted on

    This is a great tool to clean out the icing that can get stuck in the small hole, special when you've forgotten the pipping bag out for a while.

    I bought these to clean my Ateco pastry tubes. I wish I had known about this brush years ago! It would have saved me a lot of time and effort. The tiny end can be used for smaller tubes and the other end is great for my large sized tubes. I love that this is dishwasher safe too! One less thing to have to wash by hand.

    Ateco decorating tubes cleaning brush , works perfect and quality material , very well priced . If you have tubes to clean gently you need this

    from Aslan Khan LLC Posted on

    These are fabulous for cleaning any brand of icing tip--Not just ateco. There is a cone shaped brush on one end and a cylindrical brush on the other end. It is very versatile.

    Posted on

    These are fantastic! We have always used the tiny little ones available at the local cake store, and they are okay but small. These are bigger and clean so much more efficiently.

    from Everything Iced Cupcakes & More Posted on

    This icing tip cleaning brush is a lifesaver, it works so well for getting into those tiny holes. Because it has the two different size sides it also works well for squeeze bottle lids and baby bottle nipples.

    Posted on

    Definitely ordering more of these. It makes cleaning the decorating tips a breeze and cleans up so easily. I accidentally left it out with the icing on it and all I had to do was wash it off, even after the icing had hardened.

    from Roemarie Posted on

    It's use to clean up pipping tip. Two different brush size can use to clean different size of pipping tips. Very useful. Love this product

    Works great to clean both regular and large sized piping tips. It really gets in there and cleans them thoroughly. I don't why I didn't buy this sooner. It makes life easy!

    This makes cleaning small opening piping tips much easier. I also use it to clean hard to reach places on my stand mixers and other kitchen appliances.

    This brush is perfect for getting into those hard to reach places. Strong handle allows me to dig right in. Great product for a cheap price.

    Making sure your frosting tips are thoroughly clean is important. Use this brush to get all the way in each tip with ease, this will make sure no extra frosting ends up caked inside.

    from Sweet Pea's Cupcakery Cafe Posted on

    The length is nice and long. love the fact that it has two different size (small & large) for both my large and small tips. Will recommend to others.

    from Brulotte's Cakery & Sweets Posted on

    This is a great tool to have when you use a lot of pastry tips. Sometimes it is hard to get into them and clean with a regular sponge so this is a great tool to have to make sure that all of your tips get a good cleaning!

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    Love that this cleaning brush is double sided. It is so convenient to not have to have multiple brushes to clean the different size tips.

    Posted on

    These get the frosting out of my tiny frosting tips like a charm! I highly recommend anyone who regularly bakes and decorates with frosting to get this. It saves so much time! You can also use this to clean out the tips of plastic squeeze bottles, so it's versatile too!

    Posted on

    Get yourself one of these and you will be thanking yourself later!! It makes cleaning icing tips SO much easier. It also comes in handy for other hard to clean dishes!

    Posted on

    This brush is ideal for any size of piping tips. The only trouble is the tips with specially shaped openings - it's tricky to get into those little spaces, however the brush does a pretty good job.

    Posted on

    This product is just what I needed!1 Amazing product! This makes cleaning you piping way more easier and faster at the same time! I would recommend this!

    from Mercury Posted on

    This brush is a must have for cleaning tips. It makes cleaning simple and easy. Web is the first place ive seen one and so happy we found it.

    from Russ' Sub Shack Posted on

    This brush is helpful in getting into the nooks and crannies of the larger standard Wilton and Ateco piping tips. However, it doesn't quite work the same with the smaller tips, especial the small round hole tips like Wilton 1-4. The issue is in the thick piece of coiled metal at the ends. If only the actual brush bristles extended to the very ends into a thin tip, it would work better. Nonetheless, It's great for the larger tips and the price!

    Posted on

    Awesome little tool that is not sold in common stores so a newer baker I didn't know it existed. This is a must for any baker new or old!

    from The One Butt Bakery Posted on

    Ateco (August Thomsen) 1661 6" 2-Sided Decorating Tip Cleaning Brush is a fantastic little cleaning brush. I use it for many things other than the decorating tips.

    from Ruffled Feathers Posted on

    I really like this brush. Now is so easy to clean the decorations tip. No more having hard time getting them clean. I will recommend it!

    Posted on

    This little brush makes cleaning pastry tips a snap! No more plugged, dirty or oily tips, keeps our dishwash staff from complaining so much! Must-have for anyone who uses decorative icing!

    from NANNYS WAY Posted on

    This is an essential tool if you use pastry tips. This brush really does the job to clean royal icing out of some of my tinies tips. It is a total bargain for a really helpful cleaning tool.

    from Sugar Buff Posted on

    I purchased the 6" Ateco 2-sided decorating tip cleaning brush. This brush is sturdy and works well to clean all the nooks and crannies in my decorating tips.

    from Jack & Alice LLC. Posted on

    Good little brush that doesn't what it is supposed to. It is easy to lose though, so i have to be careful where i put it when I wash it.

    Posted on

    Great for you if you pipe a lot of cupcakes or own a bakery. It is straight and to the point. I like it. I will buy again.

    from The Tea Room Posted on

    Bought this to wash my decorating tips with when done working on cakes. I have to be gentle and make sure it doesn't get stuck inside of tip and then have to pull out of tip so that it doesn't cause damage. I really do not use this as much as I thought I would.

    from Panaderia Gonzalez Posted on

    Works great for cleaning your pastry tubes either when you're done working or between colors if you don't want the last color to come through.

    from Petaljammies Cake & Pastry Posted on

    We use our cake decoration tools daily. These are awesome they certainly get in there and get our tools clean. Both sides does the trick for us.

    Posted on

    These 6" 2-Sided Decorating Tip Cleaning Brushes by Ateco are super convenient. It takes only moments to clean tubes or tips of most types. A good value.

    Posted on

    The double end on this, saves for having to keep track of a bunch of different brushes for different parts of cleaning. No matter the tip, it is universal & always works great.

    from Hot Box Cookies Posted on

    Cleaning my Bismark Tubes is a lot easier with the Ateco (August Thomsen) 1661 6" 2-Sided Decorating Tip Cleaning Brush. I simply slip it through the hole and stuff just comes right on out. Great to have.

    from jwhitten31 on Youtube Posted on

    It odes what it needs to do! The double end is a little un-weildy at times, but its nice to have two different sizes to use.

    from Kiwi-Cakes Posted on

    Great 2 sided tool to clean both large and small decorating tips. Super easy to use and keep clean. Made of good material and sure to last me a while.

    Posted on

    Handy little cleaning brush. Cleans both large and small decorating tips. Very happy with the price and size of this cleaning brush. Great to have a few on hand at all times.

    Posted on

    This is the best cleaning brush that I have run across and the price is minimal. The shaft is stiff enough and the brushes are conveniently sized to fill all of my tips. It is durable enough for my needs but I guess that would depend on the usage. The only problem I have is keeping up with it!

    from Gert's Goodies Posted on

    I don't know how I have survived without this tool for cleaning my pastry tips! i always ran them through the dishwasher, and then had to wipe them out anyway, this allows me to skip the wiping process completely, now the tips only go into the dishwasher for the sanitize cycle.

    Posted on

    I do like this Ateco 2-sided decorating tip cleaning brush. It is just your basic utensil. Overall, I have no complaints and i would recommend this.

    Posted on

    Super useful when you have to get frosting that is lodged inside your pastry tips. Just use with some soap and hot water and everything comes right out.

    from Ivy Bakery Posted on

    I took off one star because I tried to fit the wide end with a closed star tip, and the brush was just too small. If you're using medium or large pastry tips, this is definitely the wrong brush. What I actually purchased this brush for is to clean the hard plastic straws that come with reusable tumblers. The small end of the brush is perfect for that.

    Posted on

    This cleaner makes clean up of tips a cinch! I was always concerned with not properly cleaning my tips and bacteria growing. With this handy tool, I now longer have that concern.

    from Almost Home L.L.C, Posted on

    This brush cleans up every nook and cranny of pastry tips. It’s also good for the tips of squeeze bottles. We use both sides of the brush depending on the size of the item we need to wash.

    from Sussman's Bakery Posted on

    Great tool. Cleaning cake decorating tips can be a stressful job, but the Ateco double sided cleaning brush does wonders and relieves so much time consuming work to not have to be done. A must buy

    from Couture Decorating & Event Planning Posted on

    Cleaning pastry tips sucks - it just does, and we all know it. This makes that process seriously 1/10th as bad. It's a vast and dramatic improvement and makes quick work of a whole set of tips.

    You've got to have the right tools to clean your tools! This little doo dad does the job to keep the tools clean and workable.

    from Weber Catering Posted on

    Makes cleaning pastry tips a charm! It lasts forever, all you need is a little soap and cleans through greasy tips with ease! Every kitchen needs one!

    Posted on

    I can't even count how much time it takes to clean pastry tubes effectively, especially if you work with several of them at t a time, and also if you are working with buttercream which can get greasy and is hard to clean. This invention is genius with cleaning decorating tips. It really works, too. I clean my pastry tips in such a short time now because of these double sided cleaning brushes.

    Posted on

    Using this decorating brush is easy and cuts down cleaning time.

    This is great to have on hand to get into the nooks and crannies of pastry tips that are otherwise hard to reach. Quality was as expected and of course I was pleased with the price.

    from Elegantly Sweet Pleasantries and Events Posted on

    Handy little must-have tool for anyone who use decorating tips. Makes for a quick and easy clean-up. Well made and very sturdy. Should last a very long time.

    from Baked Bliss by Laura Posted on

    Great for cleaning tips used for piping buttercream. The bristles get into the nooks and crannies. And it cleans pretty well. Just add some soap and rub the gunk out with your fingers. Ateco never fails.

    Posted on

    Ateco (August Thomsen) 1661 6" 2-Sided Decorating Tip Cleaning Brush is an absolute must have for any cake decorator. It makes clean up a breeze. I highly recommend it.

    Posted on

    I use this to clean all my decorating tips. It removes the batter or cream stuck inside and it's the handle and bristles are strong to last a long time.

    Posted on

    These are handy but I don't really find them necessary unless the frosting in the tips have hardened and I have let it sit for a while. They do fit through very small tips as well as the larger ones.

    from Petruzzi's Kitchen Posted on

    This product works really good in cleaning the tips. I think I would like it to be a little bit longer to work better for me.

    Posted on

    This brush removes all of the stuff you put into tips. Something as thick as butter cream, to easy things like piping chocolate. It removes it with ease!

    Posted on

    How did I survive without these? It's such a hassle to clean those tips but this brush makes it a breeze. Won't go without these again! Great value.

    from Sweet Treats by Sonia Posted on

    I was never able to get my tips really good and clean until I used this tip cleaning brush. It gets deep down into the tip and cleans it thoroughly.

    from Polished Brass Enterprises Posted on

    I used to REALLY hate trying to clean out my piping tips, especially the small ones. Not anymore! This brush works really well with Ateco and Wilton tips alike. A great simple solution to every decorators problem.

    Posted on

    This is the perfect size to get into small corners. I use this to properly clean tight corners of pans, piping nozzles and anything that\\\'s hard to reach.

    Posted on

    The Ateco Decorating Tip Cleaning Brush is a sturdy little product good for getting into hard to reach places, and strong enough to do a good cleaning job once it get there! - This brush is made with a heavier gage wire than the Carlisle Beer Tap Line Cleaning Brush so it's would be better for heavier jobs, but both these brushes are good.

    Posted on

    It was exactly what I needed. Works great to get all sizes of decorator tips clean. No more using my little finger to try and scrap out frosting.

    from Designer cupcakes & More Posted on

    The best little decoring tip cleaning brush I have ever used. Sturdy...not flimsy like others I have tried in the past. Great value and gets the job done!

    I use this brush for cleaning the tips that I use decorating cupcakes. They also work well for cleaning tint bottle tips at the salon.

    from Legends Salon Posted on

    i like to use to brush my tools tube nail for flowers it keeps all my stuff clean superficial is just so great and it is cheap.

    from home Posted on

    It always seems the decorating tips sit around last waiting to be cleaned when we are finished with a project, and have lost many tips that way, either to the trash or the garbage disposal! This brush is great to have on hand, and helps get the deco tips really clean in a timely manner, and it also helps with some really narrow-stem wine glasses we have. I have a friend who even uses them to clean areas of fine silver, and jewelry, and the price is so low, you can order several !

    from homeschool Posted on

    This is a great little brush for easy cleaning of all sorts of decorating tips. It has two sizes great for large and small tips.

    Posted on

    This brush is super awesome at cleaning most decorating tips very thoroughly. Only 4 stars because it doesn't clean all tips...some are still too small.

    from Happy Day Cafe Posted on

    Just perfect, gets a high temperature for what I wanted it for when I am doing confectionery baking its a must have in my kitchen utensil draw.

    from Britans Yogurt Mill Posted on

    This is a great cleaning brush for your decorating tips. Keep in mind, though, it does not fit all tips. Specifically, any of the really small tips, like Wilton size 3 and smaller. The coiled wire itself is too thick to get through the opening. Other than that, it is great for getting that last bit of goop out of your medium and larger decorating tips.

    Posted on

    Good ateco decorating tip cleaning brush. this product really comes in handly with small decorating tips that your having a hard time getting frosting out of love these product.

    Posted on

    This product is very versatile. You have two different sizes on it. Many times you need to clean something and all of your brushes are too big to fit. This item solves that, it has small and smaller. Great price for this item.

    This works great for the larger tips - easily gets frosting out of the tips, even sticky peanut butter frosting! The brush itself rinses off easily as well.
