I once had a customer come into my store wearing a pair of jeans with brown, very crispy looking holes all over them. She sheepishly asked where the jeans wall was and I assisted her. She apparently thought it would be a good idea to put her damp, and only, pair of jeans in the microwave for "like 10 seconds".

This weekend I figured out how to heat up a Red Baron pizza in my clothes dryer. It was delicious.

Underwear in the microwave? Don't do it. It'll smell like fish for weeks!

Any word on whether she dries off the dog that way?

I think they're dry now. Unless the firemen hosed them down.

I did this back in high school as I got soaked out in the rain when it was really cold and the stupid school didn't have the heat on. -Works fine if you watch it and don't try to get them too dry.

Right after I successfully dried my shirt, some idiot comes in behind me (monkey see, monkey do) and tries to do their jeans (with metal studs on them).

I warned them, they didn't listen and decided to "cover up" the metal studs...

hilarity ensued.

Doesn't she know microwaves are for gremlins.

KRAMER: Hey buddy. I am waiting for my shirt.
JERRY: You got your shirt in my oven!?!
KRAMER: I didn't have any quarters for the dryer. Anyway this is better. And it's more convenient.
JERRY: For both of us.
KRAMER: And I have a lot more control. I have one shirt going for 10 minutes at 325 degrees.
JERRY: What's wrong with your oven?
KRAMER: I am baking a pie!

The clothes dryer?

Oh yeah, I did that at work once, my socks were wet and I assumed it was similar to drying something in an oven, right? So I set them on medium for three minutes and walked barefoot out to the warehouse, then returned to a eye-watering cloud of smoke in the breakroom and gagging co-workers. Had to open the windows and doors to clear out the stench. They gave me the microwave, it was almost new and nothing really wrong with it other than the two sock shaped scorch marks on the bottom.

The microwave was your parting gift, right?

I'm surprised that the metal studs were large enough. Alton Brown microwaved popcorn in a brown paper bag that was stapled shut. He said the wavelength of the microwaves was too short to hit the staples, or something like that.

I wonder if it was an underwire.

Some dryers have a rack that you can clip onto the back wall to dry delicate stuff without tumbling it.

Two pairs? Were there two parties who were sockless and pantieless?

When I was in High School, I worked at a grocery store that had an in store food court...complete with microwaves. One night, one of the microwaves started smoking and then caught fire. The culprit? A homeless woman had washed her underwear in the restroom sink and was drying them in the microwave but, because she wanted to be "clean", she put her underwear on a Styrofoam plate before microwaving it!

what? should i not have done that?

Protip from experience: putting a block of butter in the microwave for a couple of seconds may work in general, but it definitely doesn't when it's wrapped in foil.

I wish everyone would learn how to use their microwave power settings. I almost never cook at 100% power anymore. It's a much better heating experience.

You can dry money (U.S. "paper" dollars) in the microwave. I used to do it after forgetting I had cash when swimming all the time. Vendors wouldn't take wet cash so I would throw it in their microwave as they looked on in horror.

Microwaves make neatly pressed linen out of your soggy, wrinkled bills.

My dad dried a pair of socks in the microwave about 20 years ago. He set it for 30 seconds and walked away. Came back and his socks were on fire. Didn't do much damage to the microwave except destroy one part, and of course this part was on a 9 month back order. My dad didn't like spending money so we went 9 months without a microwave. I lost over 30 pounds by not being able to reheat leftovers.

In college myself and two friends rented an apartment. One of my friends was pretty ghetto (I'll call his Bob), while the other one was born upper middle class (I'll call him Tom) so it was a bit of a culture clash.

Anyway, Bob was too cheap to pay to dry his clothes in the laundry room, so he had a clothing rack setup in his room where he would hang his shirts and pants after washing and had a fan setup to help with the drying process. Normally Bob did his laundry on Sundays so if his shirts and pants weren't completely dry by Monday morning, he would hang them over the gas stove on medium heat to let the stove dry them out while he took his morning shower.

Well, after a while the grind of college began to cut into Tom's funds, so he got to idea that he would copy Bob's cost cutting methods by purchasing a drying rack, but he would just wear his clothes damp if need be instead of drying them over the stove. One day Tom's clothes were a bit too wet even for his tastes, so he decided to hang his clothes over the stove to dry while he watched TV, however he missed one minor detail of Bob's method. While Bob used metal wire hangers, Tom used a plastic hanger... which promptly melted and dropped his clothing onto the stove.

Tom's clothing and the stove caught on fire and which Tom didn't notice immediately since he was so busy watching TV, thus I was the first person to notice there was smoke coming out of the kitchen. Lucky enough for me, I kept a fire extinguisher inside of the kitchen (the complex didn't have one inside of the apartments), so I was able to put out the fire before more than just the walls (and Tom's clothes) were singed.

After that Tom went back to drying his clothes in the laundry room.


Good times... good times
