'Explosive' Blu-tack banned by school
Teachers at a Scottish primary school have stopped using the adhesive after being told it 'might explode' when stuck to glass.
Bostik’s hugely versatile invention, with its '1000s of uses' will probably be bought by the military following the revelation that Blu-tack is explosive!
Schoolchildren in Perthshire were left feeling blue as their treasured work was heroically stripped from the classroom windows by lifesaving health and safety folk.
The officials behind the discovery claimed the Blu-tack could react with a chemical in the window causing the glass to shatter.
However thank heavens for the Government's Myth Busting Panel (we imagine this is a lot like the MythBusters TV show, except without all the fun) who rubbished the claim.
The Myth Busters told the school to remove the ban and restored a much needed feeling of safety - even providing the school with a comforting message...
'The manufacturer's website makes clear that the product can be used on glass. We see no reason why the children's creative work should not be displayed for everyone to enjoy!'
