I can't imagine someone wearing pantyhose in the kitchen. Synthetic fabrics (plastics, etc.) actually melt into your skin if there's a fire or extreme heat. I'll never forget this happening to an older lady in my neighborhood. She reached into the cabinet over her gas stove while a kettle was on to boil and the front of her nightgown melted into her chest. She had to have skin graphs for like 2 years. It was horrible.
