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....

Umm. . . that's what I thought! icon_surprised.gifI 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

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!
