(This question is not about cleaning isomalt off of things -- I find that soaking my pan and spoon in hot water and soap takes care of that quickly.)
My question is: if you need to clean fingerprints or smudges of royal icing or smears of color off of isomalt, how do you do it?
I am dealing with pieces of isomalt that are pretty small and I could not use (even if I had one) a propane torch on them, as I have seen suggested.
I'm loathe to use water, even with isomalt's low/non-hygroscopic qualities, but maybe that wouldn't be so bad. I have also seen people mention using vegetable oil -- a bit on a piece of paper towel, I'm assuming -- to polish up isomalt windows and such.
Anybody have any experience? Thanks! I did a forum search but didn't see anything -- my apologies if I missed a previous discussion.
