He baked my caps and the fumes were so terrible he had to take all 3 kids, including our 10 week old outside while the house aired out. I have one less cookie sheet now.
Thanks no baking then

Oh ~ make sure you come back and check your caps at about 1-2 minutes and then again at 10-15 because there are always straggler bubbles that come up. I even check again around 1/2 hour later. If they are big ones (which the later ones are), you can pop them with a pin. You doing okay?
Thank you again Heather!
