For most people, a hairdryer is a pretty straightforward tool used for, well, drying and shaping hair. But there are actually tons of other uses for this versatile item. A fraction of people might use their hairdryer daily, but most people don’t have the time to wash, dry, and style their hair every day. So, what can you use your hairdryer for while it’s sitting in a bathroom drawer? Believe it or not, there are plenty of uses for hairdryers all over the house.
Here are some unusual uses for a hair dryer :
