I can't remember if I turned off my flat iron this morning...

Recommended Posts

I might be able to go at lunch and check... but I wish I didn't have to cuz I have to take bus and I hate taking buses. I'm gonna feel really dumb if it is off...

Not to worry you anymore but my brother in laws first babys mama recently had her whole apartment burn down last sunday due to someone leaving a pot with the stove on in a another apartment. The whole complex burned down to nothing (16 apartments) so when it comes to things like that you never want to take a risk. Better to check and be safe!

I think straigtening irons are desgined so that if you accidently leave them on, they won't explode or anything (haha) but if you left it next to something or on top of something flammable, that is very dangerous. I have left mine on so many times, luckily nothing has happened.

I checked the website and found the model that looks exactly like mine and it listed "Auto off" as one of the features. So I called the company and the person I spoke to said that model should shut off 45-50 minutes after it's turned on. I'm pretty sure I have that model.... unless they kept the look exactly the same but added a new feature to it...

 

I feel soooo dumb-dumb...

My straight iron has an auto off function, and every hot iron I looked at has an auto off, and this included the cheap ones from Wal-Mart so I think it's pretty much standard nowsmile.gif

 

Realistically, though, in 45 minutes it could still potentially do some damage, but I'm sure it will be fine.

I've accidentally left mine on all day, too. The other I left for work at 8am and got home at 6pm and the dang thing was still on. Luckily, nothing happened and the counter wasn't damaged or anything. Now, I'm trying to get into a habit of unplugging it and not just turning it off.

I usually try to unplug my straightening iron after I use it. It makes me feel better and then atleast I know it is for sure off. Most straighteners should have the Auto off button..

my straighteners have an auto-off. i've discovered this because i've accidently left them on sooo many times and come home to find that thankfully they've turned themselves off. my friend almost burned her house down once because she forgot to unplug her straighteners but before they went to auto-off a piece of paper fell on them and burned! luckily her sister saw and turned them off!

sorry didn't mean to worry you! if they're not near anything flammable then it will be fine. my friend has notepads and paper everywhere so it just slid off a pile of notebooks and stuff but if you don't have anything like that near it it should be ok

Everything ok?

 

I've become very religious about unplugging mine when I'm through. I have left the oven on before when leaving to go somewhere and come home to something burning. Kinda scary.

The funniest thing yesterday!

 

As I got off the bus and started walking home, guess what I saw! Two fire trucks with flashing lights right beside my building!!! My heart started pounding and all I could say was "F%^$!!!!!!!!" I didn't know if I should run toward it or away from it and go somewhere else to hide...

 

I kept on walking and then saw that there was another fire truck front of the building next to mine and that's where all the firemen were... I was like "Thank you, God!!!!"

 

I got home and everything was all good... smile.gif

I have a straightener and I have left it on before and it sucks being at work wondering if you've left it on. I'm glad that mine has an auto off feature and it shuts off within 10-15 mins of being on. It's good to hear that nothing happened.
