    at what temperature do we put the mod podge painted project in the oven and for hoe long?

      The lowest your oven will go and usually an hour or so. You are just using it to dry the glue. You could just leave it to air dry and not use the oven it just takes longer to dry.

    Don't cringe, I just threw several gallon Pickle jars out. I cant get the smell out of them, washing, soaking, scrubbing. Nothing worked. Help would love to do the canister set.

      Pop the lids in a net laundry bag and wash and dry with a normal cycle of clothes. The washer cleans them and the drier sanitizes them. For those that don’t know, there are inly three things in a usual home that will sanitize.


      1. Dishwasher
      2. Drier on normal or high heat.
      3. Sunshine.


      Hope this helps.

      Super, really hadn't thought of it, and this sounds like it may actually work. Will try this too. I really want to do this project and a few others. Thank you.
