Beware of straighteners

Submitted by sarah

When handling your straightners be very careful with them, I dropped mine and tried to catch them with my legs and now I have scars where I got burnt.

I've burnt my ear more times than I care to remember. It hurts even more when I clamp down on my earring up the top of my ear, because that heats up too! Never fun...

Be careful what you put them down on also. Once I put mine down on my book shelf and it melted the plastic finish!
