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 :
- Light your fire. Light your charcoals for your barbecue and immediately add a blast of hot air with your hair dryer to intensify the flames. You can also use a hair dryer to blow on damp wood in the fireplace to make it more flammable.
- Defrost in the winter. Use a hairdryer on high heat to defrost frozen pipes in the wintertime. You can also use a hair dryer to dry out wet winter boots.
- Defrost in the kitchen. Defrost frozen food with a hair dryer. Be careful not to get any water on the appliance. You can also use the hair dryer to defrost big chunks of ice if your automatic ice maker gets jammed.
- Speed up your beauty routine. Set your dryer to cool and blow dry your painted nails until dry. You can also blow-dry medium heat your eyelash curlers for a few seconds to add more curl to your lashes.
