Ten Good Uses (Minus Five) For

...Hairdryers

1. Releasing old, ugly, and stubborn contact paper so you can paint the inside of your cabinets.



2. Thawing car door locks so your daughter can get to her classes.

3. Blowing dust from ceiling beams so you don’t have to look at it one more day.

4. Encouraging a spider to come down from the ceiling (when you discover it's not dust) because if you swipe with a broom and freak out you might accidentally flip it on your bed...or yourself.

5. Oh and… drying and taming the curly hair. Hairdryers are useful for drying hair.

What’s your favorite use for your hairdryer?

  2. I forgot to add, spraying water and then using a steam iron will remove wall paper.

  3. When Social Butterfly was still livin' at home we used to use a blowdryer to blow out her guinea pig Bunji...he loved it!

    I've used one to blow up the big pillow floats I put under the winter cover of the swimmin' pool. Sure beats me huffin' and puffin' 'till I pass out!

    God bless ya sweetie and have a glorious day! :o)

  4. Besides drying my hair, I've used the hairdryer to dry a wet spot on my clothes. You know, when you have to spot treat something...ahem...like when you spill a drop of Pepsi or tea or whatever and don't want to change? I'll clean the spot and then grab the dryer to hasten the drying time.

  5. LOL, the spider use is classic :) Sorry to say my hair is too short for a dryer.

    And I'm SO GLAD to see you back. I've missed you. :)

  6. They are also good for defrosting your self-defrosting freezer when it won't do what it's suppose to do. :)

    BTW, I'm with Jules - missed you, glad you're back.

  7. To put plastic up on your windows when you live in the frozen tundra like we do!

    And yes, we've finally taken the plastic down for Spring, woo hoo! :-)

    Hope you had a blessed Easter, my friend!

  10. It never occurred to me to use mine to go after cobwebs. What a good idea!

    Hairdryers come in handy for drying wet spots on clothing where you've had to rinse out a spill.

  14. I don't think we have any hairdryers in our house and if we did I guess I wouldn't have to worry about using it for my hair (or lack of), unless it was to warm my head.

    Good to see you back. Missed the previous posts but saw your comment on one of my posts and knew you were at least looking at blogs again.

  15. Well goodness gracious Teresa, never thought of any of those except drying your hair...I've led a sheltered life!
    :) Actually I love the idea of blowing dust from ceiling fans; perhaps it would blow the dust off of tables? ahh, it's always worth a try!
    Have a fantastic day!
