There is more to your hair dryer than just blasting your locks.
It's the multi-tasking tool that will save your life on more than one occasion. Here are nine amazing life hacks you need to try.
1. Remove crayon or wax spills
Blow-dry the stain on the high heat setting until the wax melts, then wipe it with a clean cloth.
2. Get rid of creases in a plastic tablecloth or shower curtain
Blast the wrinkles with a warm hairdryer and watch the creases disappear before your eyes.
3. Set icing
Want to get that perfectly-iced look on your cake or cookies? Use the cool air setting to harden icing. Brighten a dull glaze with the warm air setting.
4. Unstick a photo
Remove a photo from the sticky album page by blowing warm air on the back of the page while gently pulling it on the other side.
5. Blow dust from hard-to-reach places
If you can’t reach a shelf or corner of the ceiling with a duster, point your hair dryer at the spot instead, and the dust will blow off.
6. Remove old stickers from glass
If you can’t unpeel a sticker from a window, try blasting it with the warm setting of your hair dyer.
7. Stretch shoes
Put on your shoes and a pair of thick socks before blasting any areas which feel tight with hot air.
8. Reheat leftovers
If you’re on holidays and your hotel room doesn’t have a microwave, gently warm your food with a hairy dryer.
9. Remove water rings from furniture
Place the nozzle attachment on your hair dryer before pointing it at the stain. Gently blow it with cool air and slowly increase the heat.
