I was washing the dishes from today's cheesecake attempt. I had used my nice silicone plastic spatula to scrap the bowl with. As I was washing it, I noticed that the scraping part was separating from the handle slightly. I pushed on it, and sure enough, it completely separated. I wasn't to worried, as I've had a couple other untensils do this. What I did notice was that INSIDE the hole of the scraper I could see some dark "stuff". Now, the handle is black, and the scraper is translucent. I immediately grabbed the nipple brush, stuck it into the hole of the scraper, and scrubbed. Everything came out, luckily. I've got the two pieces drying right now. I have the perfect cure, some Elmer's Ultimate Glue. I've used this before on some of my plastic two-piece kitchen tools, like my OXO good-grips vegetable peeler (notorious for coming apart).
