This makes your hair dryer one of the most important household appliances
Trick number 1: peel off stickers and labels
Pointing the blow dryer at a sticker or label will make it easier to peel it off. To do this, set the heat to the lowest level and point the hairdryer directly at the sticker that you want to remove. You will see that it can be easily pulled off afterwards.
Trick number 2: remove dust and dirt from the keyboard
The hair dryer can remove dust and dirt from the gaps between the keyboard, i.e. leftovers, dust, lint etc. The gaps between the keys on your computer are a real paradise for annoying germs and dust.
Just keep in mind that you have to use cold air to do this and you should keep the hair dryer at a safe distance. Don’t forget to unplug the keyboard to ensure your safety.
Trick number 3: clean a tarnished mirror with the hairdryer
The mirror is often fogged up after a hot shower. In order not to leave any marks on the mirror, you can simply blow-dry it so that it becomes free again. This is very quick and does not leave any marks on the glass.
Trick number 4: remove the colored pencil from the walls
The hair dryer can also be used to remove wax stains from candles on wood. So if you like having candles on the table and some wax dripping down every now and then, you don’t have to worry.
First, set the hair dryer to the lowest heat setting (carefully so that the wax does not get too hot) and you will see that the wax can be easily removed. You can also avoid scratches on the wood. When you’ve removed the wax, clean the surface well.
Trick number 5: remove the cake from the baking pan
Have you ever seen on a cooking show that the pastry can be easily removed from the mold with the help of a special blower? In your case, you can use a blow dryer on a low setting to easily remove your cake or sponge cake from the baking pan.
If you used aluminum foil instead of the baking pan, you can use the same trick. Set the hairdryer on a low setting so your cake will keep its shape.
There are many more tricks you can use to use the hairdryer. You probably have a few tips in store yourself. However, you should always pay attention to some safety precautions:
- Never set the hair dryer on the highest setting.
- Don’t use it on liquids that can splash (remember, it’s an electrical device).
- Never direct hot air at other household electrical appliances.
- Do not point the blow dryer at fabric for too long, or it may start to burn.
