What does melted silicone look like?

does anyone have any pictures of melted / ruined silicone toys? I was thinking about boiling and bleaching multiple silicone toys at the same time because doing one toy at a time is really labor intensive and ends up taking forever. I know that there might be problems with melting and degrading but the toys are very high quality silicone and I feel pretty confident that they won't but if they do have some degrading I'm not sure what it would look like. I'm curious if anyone has pictures of the type of damage to look for when silicone toys touch. If toys have slight melting does that mean it can no longer be completely sterilized

If they are 100% silicone there will be no melting or damage with just boiling or by boiling them together. It takes upwards of 600 deg F to begin to melt silicone, you will have a hard time getting a pot of water to reach that temp. IF you did happen to melt the silicone you would probably not want to use them. Silica would be released which may not be the best for internal use.

What does a silicone toy look like when it does melt? Well, I did melt one, you can see the results here.

thanks Tim, I had watched the flame test video a few minutes earlier and wasn't sure if silicone would look different if it came into contact with other silicone vs fire. It's great to know that I can more easily clean them and save time doing it
