Is it a good idea to place RFID tagged/microchipped clothing in a microwave oven for a few seconds? Can it
really disable RFID/microchips? Or could it even exacerbate the dangers of the chip and render it more
physically harmful somehow? Also does microwaving clothes/shoes for a few seconds damage them?
I’m specifically worried about damage to a goose down jacket. I found a research article which discussed
the microwave radiation receptor capability of goose down. I would think the effect would be temporary since
it’s only for a few seconds. it seems perhaps the feathers would lose some of their fluff is all.
Tangentially speaking, is most of the internet hype irt RFID/microchips true? I.e. are they really becoming so prevalent
in products we purchase or is that more in the future? Also are there any other methods for detecting and/or disabling
Thank you much and good day!
