well durr, its material, its floaty. dont go near flames with it. comman sense really.

mind you last time long skirts were 'cool' that i remember i was at school, and they told us not to wear them as they were a tripping hazard.

Yes but certain clothes DO ignite quicker than others and to walk past a gas fire and for it to ignite seems pretty dangerous to me - especially as this time of year (well when it's not raining LOL) and people are having barbecues.

They are thin cotton most of the time... of course they burn quick.

Its a bit like saying don't get in a bath or they will get soggy and heavy!

We were told about the tripping hazard at school too!
