Tell us about yourself!
I don't often comment But thought this one is really cool as well as very useful, also better for our planet then this stuff ending up in some landfill (Or the side of the road as I have seen). As for melting, rather softening, because you aren't really bringing it to a melted stage, it should be safe in the oven (IF YOU USE A RANGE HOOD TO EXTRACT ANY FUMES (NOTICEABLE OR NOT), But to err on the side of caution, if possible have a nearby window open a little for fresh ventilation.
I tried various places/sites where I might be able to find instructions on how to wrap, tie or make the "Monkey Fist", But didn't have any luck for this type, (The kind I wanted); so I was very pleased when I found this one on how to make it, especially since this is exactly the one, or type and method I had been looking for. Thanks; and have a great day!! - - - Ed
