In addition to using a microfiber dusting mitt, be sure to wet the mitt and wring the excess water, out before microwaving your potato. This gives a more complete cooking and the potato will be fluffy.

No one has put how to make one. It just says it is fun using bits to make one. I need instructions on how to make and best materials to use.
