They needed to add a few more colours.

Here’s a true and sad story. Herself’s cousin in France was killed by a tumble dryer fire. She opened the door and it blew the whole house up. In Paris a few years back. She was a lovely lady too.


How did opening the dryer blow up the house,was it gas?

I personally refuse to use the dryer for my clothes. Make a song and dance about it being used. Basterds of things

The daughter-in-law’s family own/owned laundries and they say never put a tea-towel into a dryer.
They’ve had a number of fires over the years.

She saw a fire and opened the door. Apparently the dry particles and sudden influx of air exploded it. Jeremy Clarkson made an awesome potato gun using cornflour along similar lines iirc.

Any dry powder can be explosive especially when near a static electrical source.

There was an explosion at the odlums factory in the midlands a few years back

As per the ESB site, my power was die to come back at 12:30. Then 16:00. Then 18:45. Now it’s 19:45 but, at this stage, what credibility do they have left?
