No more leaving glasses on your bedroom window after a night out. 

Dublin Fire Brigade has warned people that household items like glasses, mirrors and crystal vases can cause a fire on sunny days if the light is reflected on a flammable surface. 

In a video posted to Twitter, they warned people to "make sure yours are in the shade, and remember the sun moves during the day."

Cigarette lighters can also explode in the sun, as one person pointed out in the comments

And of course, one eagle-eyed Twitter user was quick to point out that the earth moves not the sun

Lesson one: Remove any glasses, crystal or mirrors from windowsills.

Lesson two: The earth moves not the sun.
