I’ve seen several tutorials for recycling crayolas using the oven, but never with the microwave. And as my kid’s pencils box looks like this….I decided to give a try.
I cut the crayolas into small pieces and put them in an ice cube tray (bad idea you’ll see!).
I put everything in the microwave on “defrost”, and ….
It’s messed up!!!
The ice cube trays are not made for microwave …. what a surprise! 😉 But it’s all I had on hand! I cut the melted parts and I started again. It works best with smaller tanks, it avoids having one side burned and the other not even melted.
Conclusion, it’s works but:
Use microwave containers.
Melt small amounts at a time.
Use “defrost” and keep an eye on it ( it takes 2-3 minutes … but it depends on each microwave).
Et voila! Have fun!Amaryllis
