Any ideas how to separate 3 plastic interlocking puzzle type pieces that are stuck together? I've tried hot and cold soapy water already.
Maybe you could fill the inside cup full of ice, wait a few minutes and then place them in a pot of hot tap water, letting the hot water soak a few minutes around the outside cup. This has worked for me.
Another idea: place them in the freezer overnight, then put them in your dryer with a towel or blanket for a few minutes (neighbors suggestion).
If that doesnt work try spraying WD-40 around the top of the bottom cup let it stand a few minutes and using grips in both hands try to twist them apart.
Try putting it in the freezer.
Try freezing them. After well frozen, dip one end in hot water for a few minutes, leaving the other side cold. Then try to seperate
Thanks I'll try it.
