Great as lingerie is there are something things it's not suitable for. Putting out kitchen fires is probably one of those things. Instead you need large, unflattering and cheap "granny pants." Which luckily for one woman is exactly what she had when her kitchen caught fire!
The quick thinking woman grabbed the £4.99 pants, or "parachute knickers" and threw them over the fire after having first doused them in water. And as she said afterwards, "If they had been my daughter's skimpy knickers I don't think they would have done any good!"
So although you prefer lingerie never forget that granny pants have their uses and can put out more than one type of "fire"!
