Good To Know

I've written about this before...the Sodastream machine.

It's still one of the coolest inventions, and we use it all the time.

What I didn't know is that the bottles can explode while you're carbonating.

Oh goodness. I hope this save someone else from my mistake!

I wanted to bubble some water to put in the frig so it'd be nice and cold this evening when we have guests for dinner.

But in the middle of the ten seconds or so that it takes to put in the carbonation...BOOOOOOOM!!!

Instantly I was covered in a shower of water as the bottom of the bottle exploded.

To be fair to Sodastream...they did warn me about this. If I'd ever taken the time to read what's on the bottle, I would've known that you're not supposed to put it in the dishwasher. I only did it one time! But I guess that was enough to weaken the plastic.

Good to know!

And actually, I think it's the hottest day we've had this year, so getting a little shower in the afternoon wasn't so bad.

It was just a little shocking when it happened!
