I can’t even recall how I ended up over at Pintester but when I did I pretty much fell instantly in love. It’s exactly the kind of blog I would have if I were to do one solely based on what happens when you make things from Pinterest. Because we all know that rarely do they turn out as advertised – usually ending with a lot of swearing. I love the swearing and Cocknails. This week she asked everyone to attempt ONE pin that has been on your Pinterest for a while and blog about the experience, calling it The Pintester Movement. I decided this was the perfect time to finally give one of these pins a whirl and see what happens. I hit up my “Tips and Tricks” board because that is usually where the epic fails beyond food reside and I wasn’t let down. I can’t be the only one that hoped a “this will save you HOURS of time and is so easy” pins really work can I? Since I was feeling a wee bit lazy, I decided to try this pin about a super easy way to clean your microwave.
I knew this was going to be interesting when I saw that the site had no more instructions and I had to rely on the words with the picture. However, it didn’t seem like it would blow up and it looked easy to test.
Of course, while I thought I had a cup of vinegar I didn’t, I had a little over a half cup. Crap. So I did a 50/50 ratio with what I had. Please excuse our groutless tile, someday my husband may actually get on that.
I decided to still roll with the 10 minutes from the pin.
10 minutes later…
Yeah, not a whole not of difference right? While things were a bit steamy there really wasn’t a huge amount of steam. I got out my paper towels and wiped down what I could but there wasn’t a huge improvement.
If nothing else I guess this pin won since it got me this far I decided to actually do it for real and finally cleaned out the icky goo.
Make sure you head on over to see what other people have done with their own Pinterest challenges on The Pintester Movement!
