Are you looking for a way to burn your house down this weekend? Wonderful! We’ve found the perfect method, and you ruin a grilled cheese in the process.

A woman named Suzanne Dale noticed a grilled cheese life-hack on her Facebook feed, and she put it to the test. The results were disastrous.

Dale spoke about her experiment to the Daily Mail, saying “I just thought ‘oh I’ll try that.’ I don’t know why, I have griddles and everything to make cheese on toast. I thought it might be a faster way of making cheese on toast.”

And oh boy, was the process faster! Dale followed the instructions from the Facebook post, flipping her toaster on its side to melt the cheese without it dripping into the actual toaster. It only took a couple of minutes for the toaster to start smoking, and this caused Dale to flee her residence.

So, in the end, Dale’s kitchen nearly burnt to the ground. And it took emergency respondents 20 minutes to put out the fire. No one was injured in the fire, and despite the embarrassing nature of the situation, Dale was able to see the humor, and took to Facebook to share the tale. “Time for a trip to Argos… ….!!…. PLEASE SHARE.. !!… there must be other people as daft as me.. !! x.”
