Warm water for decals

Postby Mark » Fri Apr 15, 2016 3:23 am

We know that some decals definitely behave better if soaked in warm water. However, that little saucer of warm water cools down within minutes !!
Here's a quick tip. Place it on a USB coffee warmer. They are absolutely hopeless for keeping a mug of coffee warm, but do a good job of keeping a saucer of warm water warm.

The Teddy Bear style really goes well as SWMBO always calls this daddy's toy room !!

It's one of those things that shouldn't exist. Anybody who expects enough power out of a USB port to keep a cuppa warm wants their head examining. Mine will keep a small saucer of water luke warm, which is ideal for what I want :lol:
