    Cotton fabric can catch on fire in a microwave. Do you use a certain type of fabric? My potato bag caught on fire after I had used it at least 15-20 times. It was just regular cotton that I had left over from a quilt I had made.

      I’ve never heard of this happening with cotton fabric. I’ve only left it in for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes though.

    Do you just put the popcorn kernels in the bag with no oil or butter? Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have some pink polka dot cotton fabric that will be perfect for this.
