As it turns out, you can use your hair dryer for more than just drying and styling your hair. Here are some clever ways to use it around the house.
Remove stickers and labels
A hair dryer can be useful when removing labels, stickers, and contact paper without leaving residue. The heat loosens up the adhesive side making it easy to remove.
Dust off surfaces including bookshelves, lampshades, keyboards, and other areas that accumulate dust in hard-to-reach areas using a hair dryer. Use it to blow off the dust then use a vacuum cleaner or rag to clean the floors when finished.
Getting candle wax off surfaces such as wood furniture without scratching it can be difficult. Use a hair dryer on medium to heat the wax then once it starts to melt. Wipe it away with the cloth.
Use a blow dryer to dry small pieces of wet clothing and accidental spills on clothing.
Remove a photo from old album
Old pictures can get stuck in old photo albums. To remove pictures without damaging them, warm the pages with a hair dryer on low to quickly loosen the photos.
Dry steam off the mirror
After a hot shower that ends with a steamy mirror denying you access to your looking glass, just blast some hot air from your hair dryer and voilà.
Remove crayon marks
Crayon marks are made of wax and so using a hair dryer can help you clean them up from surfaces like walls.
DIY hot compress
Keep a hot compress hot by pointing your hair dryer at the towel and leaving it running while you are putting the compress on an injury. Keep the towel wet by spraying it with a spray bottle.
Get a fire started
Don’t struggle with blowing on a flame to get the fire going, fan the flames with a blow dryer instead. The increased airflow will grow the flame and get the fire blazing.
Make tight shoes fit
If your favourite shoes are getting a little tight, don’t discard them, blast them with a hair dryer in the tight areas instead for a few minutes. Let them cool for a few minutes to set the stretch.
Dry painted nails
Can’t sit still long enough for your nails to dry? Speed up the process by using a blow dryer set on low.
Perfect cake icing
