Life hacks are constantly coming up to try and help make people's lives easier. However, sometimes life hacks might not be as helpful as they sound. One woman found that out the hard way.

Dale, a 66-year-old British woman came across a tip on Facebook that people have been trying. The tip was for a way to make grilled cheese faster. Instead of cooking the cheese on the bread on a pan on the stove, why not turn your toaster sideways and slide your cheesy pieces of bread into the toaster. Toasters cook things pretty fast and so your grilled cheese should be ready really quick right? Wrong. Instead what you'll get is a quick kitchen fire. "I thought it might be a faster way of making cheese on toast," she told the Manchester Evening News. "Luckily I live in a house and have a garden, but if it was anyone living in a flat or somebody who was less agile who couldn't get out as quick, they were real flames, it could be dangerous." Stay away from this hack so you don't get burnt.
