No. No real resolution. I tried it the next day or two with string, so I can attest that there will be a slight garlic smell, so I am going to go with , "it is gone". I would definitely try it with string (right through the clove) in the future.
Hmmm... I have a clove of garlic that is sort of stuck - Page 2
Hey duhdeb, it happened to me this morning. I couldn't get the garlic out. When I put my finger in I could feel the end of the garlic. I went to work hoping that it would make its way down but that didn't happen, and I had garlic breath all day! When I got home at night I had a bowel movement (push hard) and the garlic popped right out. Hope this will work for you as well. Good luck & happy New Year!
