Bless your heart for showing us, lol!
Funny thing is, I did see on another forum someone talking about microwaving korkers, but I never explored it because I knew I couldn't put my clothespins (they have metal) in the microwave.
My sordid tale...I had a stretchy headband that I had a spot of hot glue on it. I had read somewhere (why do I believe what I read
) that you could pop it into the microwave for just a few secs to melt the glue and take it off. Well...it just plain started melting...after only about 15 seconds!
