The best way to cut silicone hose is by using a sharp blade or a pair of sharp scissors. Here are the steps to follow:
Measure and mark the length you need to cut on the silicone hose using a marker or tape.
Use a sharp blade or scissors to make a straight cut along the marked line. Make sure to use a smooth and consistent cutting motion to prevent jagged edges or uneven cuts.
If you are using scissors, be sure to use a pair with sharp blades and cut carefully to avoid crushing or deforming the hose.
After cutting the hose, inspect the cut end to make sure it is clean and free of any burrs or rough edges. You can use a razor blade or sandpaper to smooth out any imperfections.
Remember to always wear protective gloves and eye goggles when cutting silicone hoses to prevent injury from sharp edges or flying debris. Additionally, it’s a good idea to use a cutting board or workbench to stabilize the hose and prevent it from slipping or moving during the cutting process.
