Craft Tip No. 1

Here's what I learned this week:
Toilet-paper rolls?
Don't put them in the microwave for 2 minutes to sanitize them.

I tried it at work, and thankgod I didn't walk away because in about 80 seconds I got a whiff of burned cardboard; opened the microwave and half the rolls were singed.

I imagined a future job interview.
"Well, see, I lost my job doing activities with people with dementia because I set the kitchen on fire microwaving toilet-paper rolls."

Actually, I bet anyone who does crafts would recognize such a goof-up. (I never did crafts before, but I feel like I'm turning into a Pinterest board.)

... I shred mine and use them for mulch. So, I never worried about potential contamination. Quite the opposite.

Good on you for giving it a go.
