I put toilet paper in the microwave all the time and never have any problems.  You got to use the right settings.

Sounds about right.

Current humidity: 10%.

Usually, Baker said, when they receive 911 calls involving microwaves, it is because someone was scalded by food.

Are oven mitts not sold anymore?

How many oven mitts do you know that cover your whole body in the event of slipping and spilling? I'm pretty sure that's what TFA means. You don't generally scald yourself by touching cookware; it implies being in direct contact with steam or liquid by definition.

After I wash my toilet paper, I put it through the dryer like a normal person.....
 
2013-05-12 06:35:37 AM  
How does this raise the temperature of toilet paper above the boiling point of water?  Paper in a microwave gets hotter when it is dry?

I guess that depends on the size of your body.

Silly old people - they move to Arizona because 'the dry heat' is somehow supposed to be "good for you" and then proceed to complain about it...and sit in a room with the vaporizer going full blast, making mold grow on the walls.

Why not? You think microwave EM has a magical ability to only affect free water molecules?

If you ever drop your toilet paper into water, let it go, because man, it's gone.

Sure, but is it ok to microwave a lightbulb?

I've microwaved clothes to dry them.  Is that wrong?  Should I not do that?

This should made a PSA.  This is needed consumer information.

Microwaves only affect water.  If the tp had been dry, nothing would've happened.

/of course, now someone needs to take an old microwave outside and test both

Really? So I can put metal in there?

Why do you armchair physicists have no clue?

You're in a powerful near-field. Currents are flowing. Resistance heating occurs.

End of story.

With this water molecule BS already.... Jeez.

Why is your toilet paper getting wet?  Do you have weekly indoor water balloon fights?  Clean the bathroom with a firehose?
