Learn From Me: Do Not Microwave Your Gloves
Sure it's cold, but don't pull a Michelle and do this next time your hand is freezing.
I promise I'm not an idiot, but sometimes I'm just not sure what I'm thinking.
While I wasn't planning on mentioning this... I feel I must... I was on the phone with my mom when I did this yesterday and asked her if it was ok to put the glove in the microwave for five seconds.
My mother, who has a degree in clothing and textiles, told me that it would be ok to try this... for five seconds.
Clearly, this was a bad idea. It smelled awful and I thought I might have to call 9-1-1 after four seconds.
Thankfully, fans and water helped me, but now I need to know why this happened and why just one finger?
Was it the fabric?
Was it because these gloves were from Old Navy and only cost a dollar? No knocking Old Navy... I'm sure they didn't expect me to microwave my glove.
Or was it because this glove was dirty and maybe had something on the finger that burnt.
I am trying to not experiment by microwaving additional gloves.
I am asking for your help.
