halloween is less than two weeks away. chances are ... your kids already have their costumes ...or at least a short list to whittle down from. but
11:48 am
contact six test ... that could save your family a trip to the e-r. hopefully the only mist you'll see in the air this halloween ... comes from a fog machine. not like this rising smoke ... with a wafting chemical smell ... at underwriters laboratories in northbrook, illinois. what we're looking for here is actually the speed with which a costume might burn. u-l invited contact 6 ... to witness this spooky experiment. you can tell some of them will burn faster. the flame than in other costumes. the lab is burning a number of halloween costumes ...all made of synthetic fibers ... to show the dangers of a long skirt ... or furry paw ... when it comes in contact with jack-o-lantern ... or a driveway lined with candles. parents should use caution. it's a time when kids are very excited but we want to try to keep those kids and those costumes away from candles. we start with this egyptian princess
11:49 am
quickly up the flimsy skirt. contact six keeps a timer running ... and finds that within two minutes ... the entire dress is on fire. soon ... the wig's hair is fusing into hot clumps ... the tunic melts and falls to the floor. the fact is, if a child were in that costume even a small fire would burn them and scare them. one thing we're looking for during these burns is how easy it is for looser costumes to catch fire, especially those with dangling shawls and large skirts like this mermaid costume. the mermaid was a very frilly costume and another type of cost bit more fires just because there's a lot more fabric that could be on the ground and could catch on a candle that might be in a jack-o- lantern. but the flames on the mermaid skirt ... don't spread nearly as quickly as they do on this ninja costume. within 30 seconds ... we see the big danger here. a dangerous, hot chemical drip. there's something called flaming drip, and that's just the plastic material melting and falling away from the rest of the costume. this drip could ignite a secondary fire ... or worse ...
11:50 am
the largest organ of your body and when you start damaging that, you're gonna end up in the hospital with skin grafts and other things that are just not fun. lastly ... the 'oh-so-cute' lion costume. i was a little sad to see this one go up in flames. it takes three and a half minutes for the fire to reach the lion's face. that may seem like a long time ... but not necessarily. costumes are not necessarily the easist thing to get out of if snaps and buttons that the child can't reach so you need someone there who can stop the fire. so as you dress your kid this halloween ... it maybe a good time to review 'stop, drop and roll.' and the lab has some more lessons for parents ... including a warning about those halloween decorations. if you're decorating outdoors, make sure you get decorations that are suitable for outdoor use. you know how you can tell that? look at the ul label. if it's a red ul in a circle
11:51 am
decoration and was given extra tests for rain and cold weather. also ... never use metal nails or staples to hang lights. you could damage the wire ... and give yourself a shock or start a fire. instead ... opt for plastic hooks. and while this test revealed a lot of lessons for parents to review with their kids ... let's not forget adults ... can be pretty careless too. especially when alcohol ... and cigarettes are involved. so let's all be careful this these burning costumes ... are the scariest images you have to see. i'm jenna sachs. contact 6. jenna says you can look for costumes that say 'flame retardant' or 'low flame spread' ... but also be aware the costume probably wasn't tested to any particular standard.
