OKay....I am not sure who posted about this, but I tried it last night, I put a bowl of hot soapy tap water with all my tips in in made sure the water covered them all put them in the microwave for 2 minutes and voila!!! Clean tips, it worked amazing, I wanted to say thanks to whomever suggested this but I can't find the post anywhere!!!

So thanks!!! It worked like a charm....

That was exactly my thoughts as soon as I saw this message.

Umm. . . that's what I thought! icon_surprised.gif
I don't know if I'd risk messing up my microware or worse to clean my tips.
Let's see, maybe the tips being covered with the water prevents
any damage from happening. . .

That is exactly what it is ... the water acts as a barrier to the metal, I didn't beleive it either when I read it, but I thought I would give it a try and it worked like a charm, my tips were so clean, I just made sure the tips were completely submersed in the soapy water....

I thought the same thing....metal in the microwave...YIKES!!! I wish I could find the post it explains the whole water as a conductor thing....

After reading the suggestion by JuneBuggy, I tried this method and it worked beautifully. I figured that worst case scenario - I would get a new microwave - mine is 20+years old and I would like a new one. icon_smile.gif

Sounds like a good reason to put too little water in the bowl next time? icon_redface.gif j/k

I'm not sure I'd want to risk my microwave, I can't afford a new one right now, can I just put them in a pot of water on the stove??

I tried it the night Junebuggy mentioned it ... Thought she was crazy! My DH thought I was even crazier for listening to a lady online!! You folks haven't steered me wrong yet, I LOVE IT. Won't go back to cleaning by hand again. I thanked Junebuggy that night and I thank her again and again every time I clean-up after a cake!
