On a more successful note, I have had great results from sticking some vhs tapes into our food dehydrator. A little scary at first, but really seems to work.

@ron_houk Congrats! That sounds like a perfectly fine way to dry them out. My video deck technician actually bakes his tapes in an electric skillet.

🍳 + 📼 = 😱

@tvc15 Oh my. I don't think I'd try that. I've seen how my pancakes turn out. :/
