Precautions while using Microwaves
Make sure children understand the rules
Make sure children understand the rules about using a microwave. In many ways, using one is safer for them than using a stove, but it has its own very real dangers. Use only microwave plastic wrap to cover dishes, or use a microwave plate cover or another inverted dish. Never reheat in Styrofoam, margarine tubs, whipped topping bowls or other plastic containers. If you use reheatable disposable microwave containers, discard them afterwards; dont reuse. When using microwavable plastic containers, NEVER use with fatty, greasy or very sugary foods.
