If you’re only using your blow dryer to dry hair, you’re only tapping a fraction of its potential. In this Household Hustler Highlight, I’m going to share many more uses for it
Try using a blow-dryer to get wax off of wood furniture. Melt the wax with a blow-dryer on its slowest, hottest setting. Remove the softened wax with a paper towel, then wipe the area with a cloth dipped in equal parts vinegar and water. Repeat if necessary. You can also remove wax from silver candlestick holders with a blow dryer by using the blow dryer to soften the wax and peeling it off.
Blow dryers are also great at cleaning at radiators. All you need to do is hang a large, damp cloth behind each radiator. Then use your blow-dryer on its highest, coolest setting to blow dust and hidden dirt onto the cloth.
Blow dryers can come in handy at removing bumper stickers. Use a blow dryer on its hottest setting to soften the adhesive. Move the dryer slowly back and forth for several minutes, then use your fingernail or credit card to lift up a corner and slowly peel off the bumper sticker.
Try dusting off silk flowers and artificial plants with a blow-dryer. Use it on its highest, coolest setting for a quick, efficient way to clean them off. Since this will blow the dust onto the furniture surfaces and floor around the plant, do this just before you vacuum those areas.
Use a blow-dryer to dry your dog after a bath. Blow dryers are important grooming tools for thick or long-coated breeds since you don’t want your best friend to catch a cold. Just be sure not to use the blow dryer around their face.
