New Uses for Old Things – Part 3

April 29, 2015

It continues. Spring Cleaning! Enjoy these new uses for old things.

Hair Dryer as Mirror Defogger


After a shower, quickly clear a steamed-up mirror with a blast of hot or cold air. Magic!

Baby Powder as Dry Shampoo


Bottle empty, in a panic? Don’t have time to wash and blowdry? Sprinkle baby powder on roots and brush through, and your hair will look fresh and full of life!

Lightbulb as Ribbon Dewrinkler


Smooth out that grosgrain before it festoons a gift by holding it taut over a clean and warm, not hot, lightbulb.

Flatiron as Touch-up Tool


When you are pressed for time, combat creases on shirt collars, cuffs, plackets and hems with the straightening iron for hair. Instant!

Salad Spinner as Sweater Dryer


The spinner’s centrifugal force helps to whirl away excess water and speed up drying. After giving it a spin, lay flat and it will be dry before you know it. Give it the kickstart!
