6 Things You Should Never Put In The Microwave

1. Aluminum Foil

Aluminum foil ignites quickly when microwaved because waves reflect off metal. This is unsafe and destructive to your microwave.

2. Paper Bags

Not all paper bags are equal. That delectable popcorn bag is distinct from your lunch's brown paper bag. 

3.  Plastic Bags and Containers

Heat releases Bisphenol A (BPA), an organic ingredient that makes plastic transparent, and phthalates, which make it flexible.

4.  Travel Mugs

Travel mugs, usually plastic or steel, should not be microwaved.

5. Your Favorite Shirt

The shirt needs to be dried, but your dryer is full. You see your microwave. Microwaves heat. Dry means warm. Need a dry shirt.

5.  Hard-boiled Eggs

Because microwaves cook at high temperatures, cooking an egg would produce a lot of steam.
