As part of a project I'm doing, I need to make a list of 10 Flammable household items.

I can't think of any today because my brain is just about switched off and the weather is no help.

Can you think of any?

I thought there might be a few people on here that has experienced some odd household things catching fire and turning into a disaster.

Anybody else who can help me.

Moth Balls.

Of course, you have to catch the moths first.

Didn't think of them.

Can sofas catch fire or was they created non flammable. Couldn't find no labels on my sofa.

And if they are flammable will they do much damage?

I see, thanks for that. It also says, "On a scale from one to ten, how big do you think the fire would be?"

I have no idea about varnished tables, but would it be big do you think?

I am telling you that my brain is not that brainy but I thought because Alcahol is kind of a liquid that it might become a big fire.

I think this project is encouraging the inner pyromaniac in you all. I'm scared!

These days they are fire retardent, but will go up eventually.

Old sofas however, are like having kindling sat in the middle of your house and are very flammable and when they catch fire they go up in a very very big way, and with lots of poisionous gases too. I can honestly say from personal family experience, that when one goes up, it can cause a fire to spread to most of an average sized house within minutes.

I see, thanks.

All of you have been a great help and even the joke ones have put a smile on my face and laugh in my mouth.
