Bacon’ it in the real world

When the pancakes burn, as they sometimes do, and the fire alarm goes off (mine doesn’t have an obvious off switch–the button to press makes it stop shrieking for THIRTY SECONDS at a time), here’s a drone-up lifehack to make it stop:

Tie a plastic bag over that mofo.

Essentially, the bag blocks combustion particles (the smoke) from reaching the fire alarm sensor so it doesn’t go off. This Wikipedia article can give you the low down on how that works for different types of fire alarms.

PRO TIP: take the bag off once the smoke dissipates so you don’t become an accidental arsonist the next time you lay down the law in the kitchen.
