    Got this by email from my sister. Good thing to keep in the back of your mind.

    Cold flour

    Some time ago, I was cooking some corn and stuck my fork in the boiling water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went into the boiling water....!!

    A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house,
    as I was screaming, & asked me if I had some plain old flour... I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He told me to keep my hand in the flour for 10 minutes.

    He said, in Vietnam, there was a guy on fire and in their panic,
    they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out...
    Well, it not only put the fire out, but he never even had a blister!!!!

    ... Long story short, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 mins,
    pulled it out and did not even have a red mark or a blister & absolutely NO PAIN.

    Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge for every time I burn myself.
    *Cold flour feels even better than room temperature flour. I use the flour and have never ever had even a red spot/burn mark, or a blister!
    I even burnt my tongue once, put the flour on it for about 10 minutes .... the pain was gone and no burn.

    Try it . . . Experience a miracle!
    Keep a bag of flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did!

    Flour has heat absorbent property and also has a strong antioxidant property, thus it helps in burn patients if applied within 15 minutes.

    Flour? Plain white or wheat? I have never once see wheat on an antioxidant list. This is really interesting. Do not want to get a burn but would love to try it. Amazing @Hanzo

    Plain white, from my understanding, @Motomom34. Hope you don't get a burn too.

    I've gotten that same e-mail a time or two several years ago. You'll find all the urbana legend, myth buster type websites pan it and even a few legit medical sites say no go.

    The only time boiling water touched me my skin slid off immediately - nothing could have saved it. Fortunately a fairly small area. Can't even see the scars anymore.

    Snopes says not true.

    UncleMorgan I like peeling bananas and (occasionally) people.

    I just gotta say this: Hanzo's sister is the direct evidence. Her experience is proof. Period.

    Every other source that contradicts her actual experience is just plain wrong. And, as far as I am concerned, they can go suck wet dog fur.

    And, while on the subject, I, personally, am the proof that 2nd-degree burns over 60% of a person's body can be cured without so much as a blister (or even any noticeable peeling) simply by spending six hours immersed in the coldest water one can stand.

    Been there, done that.

    It isn't comfortable, but it's a hundred times better than the burns.

    I'm surprised the flour dust didn't ignite, or worse yet, explode. Of course it would more likely be rice flour than wheat...

    @Hanzo - Out of curiosity, was it forwarded by your sister or is she in fact the one that put her hand in the hot water/flour?

    Mahalo @UncleMorgan, but my sister was likely forwarding an email.

    Sorry you got burned, but glad you are good.
