Click here to read about plenty more uses for your hair dryer around the house.
- "Iron" out wrinkles in a plastic shower curtain or table cloth. When you hold the dryer at least 12 inches away, the hot hair does magic on the wrinkles in plastic.
- Use it in the kitchen! On "hot," it can soften hard ice cream 'til it's ready to scoop. On "warm," it can dry just-washed salad greens or pasta. Or set the frosting on your freshly-iced cupcakes by hitting it with a blast from your dryer's cool air setting.
- Also set to "cool," a blast from the dryer can help blow dust out of hard-to-reach places like on top of cabinets or on the tops of ceiling fan blades.
- To remove dripped candle wax or melted crayons from hardwood floors, blast the wax spot with a hair dryer. Once the wax softens, wipe it up with a paper towel and wash with a vinegar and water solution.
- Blast the dryer on a too-stuck price sticker to remove it with ease.
- Loosen a too-tight screw by warming it with your hair dryer.
- A hair dryer can help remove contact paper from a drawer or a wall.
- Blast a hair dryer on the bottom of a wax-paper-lined cake pan or on the bottom of a Popsicle mold to quickly remove the delicious goodies inside.
- Go ouch-less removing adhesive bandages from kids' skinned knees. Going over the bandage with a hair dryer will help the hurt when it comes time to rip it off.
- Can't bear to hop into bed with cold sheets? Open up the bed and give it a quick once-over with the hot setting.
