Unexpected Ways to Use a Hair Dryer


The appearance of hair dryers seems like something god-sent as they changed the lives of so many for the better, especially those who like their hair long. But hair dryers are not only good to make our hair dry quickly, but have other amazing benefits as well. See our curated list of what you can also use your hair dryer for.

Pull off labels and stickers easily

Imagine taking home a brand new item and you want nothing more than to start using it, so you start taking off the sticker, but it just doesn’t seem to get off or the paper is off, but the glue remains. Try the hairdryer solution! When you lead the hairdryer on the sticker, the heat that comes from it helps you to remove the sticker with ease.

Make tight shoes comfortable

Just bought a new pair of shoes and you want to wear them instantly, however, the perfect pair of shoes that were so comfortable in the shop becomes incredibly uncomfortable when wearing it for more than five minutes. To help your feet and to reduce the likeliness of hurtful blisters, wear your shoes at home for a while before you enter the outside world. If the main issue is that they are too tight, here is our solution for that: put on a pair of socks, preferably a bit wet, then put on your new pair of shoes and lastly use your hair dryer on your feet until the socks dry. Tada, now you can wear it comfortably.


Keyboard cleaning

Whether you work from home or the office, you probably still like to eat in front of your computer. As much as you like it, your keyboard definitely has other ideas. Even if your keyboards are not covered with food, it definitely has some dust in it. Instead of getting compressed air, use your hairdryer (ONLY!) if it has a cool set of it. Within a couple of seconds after blowing through your keyboard, you will see how cleaner it become.

Dewrinkle your clothes

Are you the type of person who hates ironing or you’re just in a rush? If either is you, the hairdryer can be handy to de-wrinkle your clothes. Get a spray bottle, put some water in it, then spray it on your clothes, then just start blow-drying them with your hairdryer. You’ll be ready in no time.


Curl your lashes faster

No more waiting around till your eyelashes are curly enough. To make the process faster, use your hairdryer on your eyelash curler for a couple of seconds before applying it. Be careful not to make them too warm though, only blow it until it’s nicely warm.

Remove the wax

Do you like candles? Do you use your wax machine at home? In either case, it is not unheard of that the way will spill in places you originally didn’t intend to. No need to worry! Blow your hairdryer above the wax, but not on the highest setting and within a few seconds, you’ll be able to remove the wax with a dry cloth.
