So the other day I was running very late for work, I quickly threw on an outfit, looked in the mirror and almost screamed. My beautiful white shirt was SO creased, and I definitely didn’t have time to iron it (who has time for ironing anyways?!)
I looked down, and there was my hair straightener… hmmm. I had heard once that someone had used it to get rid of some creases on a shirt, so I gave it a try. IT WORKED AMAZINGLY. Like, I might never iron shirts again!
I posted about it on Twitter and I got a few replies. A friend from overseas said that she often does that, and it works extra well for the collars of shirts that need to be sorted out – genius!
So after this, I began to wonder, what else can we use hair straighteners for… this is what I came up with:
- Loosen the waist on tight jeans – apparently running your hot hair straightener over the waist of your super tight pair of jeans will loosen them up enough for you to get them on! WINNING!
- Seal in hair chalk – ok, this is also a “hair” use, but I think its super cool. Apply the hair chalk, and then use your hair straightener to seal in the colour.
- Iron out a wrinkled hem – I did mention the ironing thing earlier, but didn’t think about using it on hems! Think about those dressed and skirts that just need a quick iron before you can wear them… now you don’t even need to get the ironing board out of the cupboard.
- Depot your eyeshadow (ok I didn’t know anything about this, but Beth and Jodi mentioned it to me last night – read more about it here
Pleeeeease let me know if you have any weird and wonderful uses for your hair straightener – I’d love to add them into the post!
Love, unwrinkled shirts and perfect hair,
