So, let’s check out what else you can do with a hair dryer besides styling your hair.

The heat will stretch out the leather, and there, you are good to go!

Go Easy on Dusting – All of us hate dusting, yet there is no escape. And more annoying are those tricky shelves, corners, lampshades, chandeliers, artificial plants, intricate wood work and even keyboards. You can use a gentle cool setting to help blow away dust and debris from such things. Though make sure to vacuum dust off the floor afterwards.

Warm Up the Food – Yes, this comes as a real life-saver. At times, you have leftover food in the hotel room but its all cold. You can actually use a hair dryer to warm up the food in absence of a microwave.

Get the Wax Off Carpets & Furniture – Whether the candle wax is spilled over a carpet or over the furniture, you can use a hair dryer to melt the wax off. Simply heat the wax using a hair dryer, and then wipe off with a damp cloth.

Remove Label Stickers and Bandages – This comes handy for most of us. Use your hair dryer to remove labels from bottles, pans and such other things, contact paper from drawers and shelves, bumper stickers from cars, and even band-aids by just blowing hot air over the sticker. This way, the label adhesive gets soften and easily unstuck.

Unwrinkle Plastic Tablecloths & Shower Curtains – You can easily get wrinkles out of plastic tablecloths and shower curtains by giving them a hot air bath using your hair dryer. However, make sure that your dryer is at least 12 inches away from your plastic tablecloth or curtains.

Remove Water Marks from Furniture – All of us face this, when we leave a cup or glass on that wooden table. But you can easily remove those water rings by pointing your dryer at them for few seconds. Continue blowing warm air until the mark gets vanished.

Remove Crayon Marks from Walls – Obviously, children do that! Seeing that crayons are made of wax, heating the marks and wiping them off makes sense. You can easily do this using a hair dryer.

Curl Your Lashes – Want to curl your lashes real good? Then, blast your eyelash curler with a warm air for a few seconds before curling your lashes. However, make sure to test the hot curler on your hand first before using it on your eyelids.
