    paper towels are usually safe , it's aluminum foil that doesn't go in the microwave

One is this cool ball light that is made out of non flammable plasic and has LED light.. I have had it own for the past two days straight and its not even hot yet. Then the other is one of those cone lights you clip to you bed... Its also has a LED cool touch light in it so it does not get hot. They say this is all for fire safety... the hottest light we have in this room is the one they gave us.

    So happy they did not catch on fire because we have broke 2 fire rules... We are only allowed 50 christmas lights and we have 325 up and then we have two lamps that are not allowed

    Another cool microwave trick is to cut a green grape in half and put the halves near each other. They will actually start arcing between them. Of course firemen have to experiment with these things!

    I've been puttin' paper towels in micros for decades if I'm heatin' up a plate of food. One under and one on top to stop most of the splatter. Have never had ignition one.

    All of these Universities need to revisit their rules. I genuinely understand the overload of the circuits back when the watts were so much higher back just a few years ago, now the low watt bulbs are very different.

    Most universities still do not allow any items in a door room with a heating element, two fold, the stupidity of some with heating element appliances and they pull a great deal of wattage. My coffee pot in my kitchen pulls more electricity than my refrigerator does. My DD dorm is limited to one TV, One, Fridge and one micro with very specific maximum watts. Fortunately she has a single private dorm room so she also has two lamps. Her dorm also allows coffee makers but she opted for a Keurig.

    Targets here still have Halloween & Christmas lights that are not LED

    Lol!! Can't help it! We've had two fires this week in some elderly apartments that could have been horrible. Luckily we are an aggressive department and knocked them down before they got into other apartments.
