yup... that is tape. I don't own clothes pins and i am too cheap to go buy them. hence the trying to microwave the corkers!!!
I actually was able to use a bit of the blue. I tossed the entire thing shortly after this pic was taken.
I then put on the awesome new exhaust fan that my DH installed about 3 weeks ago and left the house for a few hours. The house didn't smell by the time I got back.
But it took a few days for the microwave to stop smelling. I am just thankful that it didn't seem to ruin the microwave! It is brand new...2 months.
so there you go my time and energy saving venture was a bust!
