Have you ever had a time where your cookie cutter just got bent out of shape? Or maybe your spouse accidentally threw in the dishwasher? Don’t throw the cookie cutter away! There is a solution!
I posted this tutorial on my Instagram page back in 2018 and I believe it is one of the biggest things that started my influencer career. The popularity it has gained amazes me!! (Video tutorial located at the end of blog post - you don't want to miss it!)
A lot of people ask me how in the world I came up with this concept. Honestly, it was my Grandma, who has been a registered nurse for over 30 years. She has saved both my life and wallet. Who knew nurses can have tricks in the kitchen?
So eventually, I messed up one of my 3D printed cookie cutters. I complained about it and my grandma showed me a trick she learned from the hospital. Today I am here to share it with you. I THOUGHT SHE WAS CRAZY, BUT IT WORKS…so thanks to you GRANDMA! And the icing on the cake (or cookie) is... it is inexpensive and you have all of these things at home!
Disclaimer: This only works for 3D Printed Cookie Cutters, ones that were made from PLA filament. This will not work on 100% plastic or metal cutters.
Here are the things that you will need:
Here are the very SIMPLE steps to bring your cookie cutter back to life!
If you don’t have a microwave. You can do the same method with a saucepot on the stove! Follow the same steps as above, heating the water on medium-high heat until you see steam.
Do not boil water or else you will melt the cutter completely.
Once the water is heated, dip the cookie cutter in the water and let it sit for about 10-15 seconds and use your fingers to manipulate shape you need. That’s it?! Now you see why I thought my grandma was crazy. BUT. IT. WORKED.
A very simple and inexpensive trick so you can keep making cookies!

Why do I share? I asked myself this the other day. Why am I wanting to share this so much? It’s because it’s too good to keep to myself. You see, I’ve been the person that sits in her bed, days on end, utterly depressed. I’ve known what it feels like to think Heaven would be a punishment for me. Who would want to live forever, feeling so hopeless and empty? I surely didn’t. I was just going through the motions of life, waiting for the quietness of the end to still my mind.
