In my area garbage is collected only once a week, so sometimes it begins to stink after a few days. I sometimes deal with this problem by drying some kinds of garbage in the summer, or freezing it till pickup day.
I bought some chicken the other day, and of course the absorbent paper/plastic tissue in the container was quite moist. I squeezed out the moisture and put it in the microwave. After a while it was very dry--almost entirely dry, but not completely. So I put it back, and after about 30 seconds it burst into flame!
Can anyone tell me why this happened?
