15 Unusual Uses for your Hair Dryer!


I saw this cool article and wanted to share it with you guys! Enjoy

  • If you need to quickly set the icing on a cake, the air and heat of a hair dryer can quicken up the process.
  • If your cake won’t unstick from the cake pan, use your hair dryer on the bottom of the pan then invert it, it should drop right out.
  • Running an ice cream scoop under hot water helps, but you can also try using a hair dryer on the carton to soften ice cream for easy scooping.
  • Some people use pots of boiling water to quicken freezer defrosting, but a hot hair dryer works even more quickly. (Be careful of puddles of water and the dryer, though.)
  • Automatic ice-makers can get jammed with frozen ice; relieve that with a long blast of hot air to melt unwanted icebergs.
  • Remove contact paper from shelves by heating it with the hair dryer and gently working the edges up. Also works for bumper stickers and other rogue sticky things.
  • Use a hair dryer to dust hard-to-dust items; the air will blow the dust somewhere else, but hopefully somewhere else that is easier to dust.
  • Personally, I like my kids’ crayon marks on my walls, but for the rest of you: Heat the crayon marks until softened, then scrub with hot water and detergent.
  • Old photo albums with magnetic pages can get stuck -- unstick them with a blast from the hair dryer.
  • Spot-iron wrinkles by lightly dampening the area and then heating the wrinkles with your dryer.
  • Wet boots, shoes, and sneakers can take on a terrible odor if left to dry slowly -- alleviate that by drying them with your hair dryer.
  • Winter can bring frozen windows and locks -- thaw them with a hair dryer.
  • Window screens collecting dust and pollen? Blow it back to whence it came.
  • Removing bandages can hurt more than the wound, so soften the adhesive with a hair dryer first to ease the rip.
  • If you have trouble keeping a hot compress hot, keep your hair dryer by you and reheat as necessary.
I really love the idea of using your hair dryer for baking!
