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.

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
