We all use a blow dryer for the obvious reason, to dry our hair, but did you know there are a bunch of other ways you could incorporate this little machine into your daily life?
For this week's DIY, Home & Family member and beauty expert Kym Douglas shows us some innovative ways of using the blow dyers that you might not have thought of before!
#1 Remove Stickers and Price Tags
Kym: We’ve all spent hours peeling and scratching off stickers from boxes, shoes or windows. Nothing is worse than scratching and scratching and only getting little bits of paper off.
Directions: Just blow hot air from the dryer over the sticker to loosen the adhesive and peel it off in a cinch!
#2 Remove Hardened Candle Wax Off Wood/Crayon Stains
Kym: We all love a nice candlelit dinner but there’s always a tinge of regret after when we try to scrape the melted wax off the wooden dinner table! The best way to remove it is to get it hot!
Directions: Set your blow dryer to medium and aim the air directly on the wax until it starts to melt then wipe away with a cloth!
#3 Blow Dry Wrinkles Out
Kym: Okay, what do you do when you have a wrinkled shirt that you need to wear asap? Well, unfortunately, ironing isn’t as easy as some would think.
Directions: Just moisten the wrinkled area with water and then blow it dry! Voila! The wrinkle is gone!
#4 Give Homemade Cakes a Professional Finish
Kym: Give your cake a professional sheen!
Directions: Lightly blow warm air on the top and sides until the frosting slightly melts. When it cools the surface will stay shiny and look beautiful!
