Don't Dry Toilet Paper in the Microwave

Once an entire roll of toilet paper is wet, there's no saving it. It's gone. You may as well toss it in the garbage. An unnamed person in Tucson, Arizona, learned that lesson the hard way.

An attempt to salvage a soggy roll of toilet paper will end up costing someone several hundred dollars.

Fire crews were called Saturday afternoon to a Foothills senior living complex in the 1500 block of East River Road when a smoke alarm was triggered, Capt. Barrett Baker, spokesman for the Tucson Fire Department, said.

The apartment sustained several hundred dollars in smoke damage. Link -via Arbroath

Don't overdo a potato either. Once, MrsO put some potatoes in our first microwave to bake. She accidentally set it for 50 minutes and forgot about it until flames lit up the inside of the oven. Once the water content had evaporated, the potato went into ignition mode. Lesson learned the hard way.
