just to let you know (a handy PSA)

Just to let you know...A public service announcement.

If you ever get the urge to make yourself some crayons by melting old existing crayons and you are thinking of just grabbing your ice cube tray, the new one that your sister just picked you up from Ikea so that you could use it specifically to prepare and plan for your son's upcoming birthday party, and thinking it will be great to melt them in the oven....

just in case you decided to check online first, to make sure that your silicone ice cube tray is safe in the oven, and you found sites that said it was just fine, it worked for them, and a few that said no, don't risk it, but you are thinking there are more people saying that it is good to do....

if you are wondering if you should try that one project you saw on Pinterest, I am here to help you out!

The PLASTIS ice cube tray from IKEA does not handle oven heat well.

It is synthetic rubber, not silicone. With a name like Plastis, it should've been more obvious. Oops.

Now you know.

You are welcome.
