    Yes, you can use microwave oven to dry them, but there would be a smell afterwards, just leave the oven door open for a few minutes to get rid of the smell.

    They turn pink once they cool down. Not very useful... Dry cabin is far more an effective way to store your equipment especially your prized camera.
