We know hairspray is great for holding hair in place, but did you know it can actually be used for things other than hair? Well, it can! There have been a lot of images and articles floating around the internet talking about how hairspray can be used in so many different ways. You probably never even thought about using hairspray for anything other than, well… your hair. But after we share a few of our favorite hairspray uses, you’re going to think of hairspray in a whole new way – guaranteed!
Use it for Tights/ Pantyhose
Seriously! You’re probably thinking, how or why would I use hairspray on my tights? Many women have actually found that spraying the toe/seam area of a new pair of tights and pantyhose can strengthen the threads of the garments aiding in them lasting you much longer and preventing them from running. Additionally, if you get a run in your tights or hose, spray some hairspray on it as soon as possible – it will help prevent the run from getting worse.
Remove Lipstick and Ink Stains on Clothes
Again, you probably didn’t ever think of hairspray as a removal product. But according to Reader’s Digest, many people have found that if you get lipstick or ink on a garment spraying it with hairspray and letting it sit for a few minutes will get the stain off easily. Once you remove the stain you’re able to wash the garment as you would normally – how awesome is that?!
Elongate Your Shoe Shine
If you, or the men in your life, have ever gotten a shoe shine it’s always a debate as to how long the shine will last. Well…if you want the shoe shine to last even longer spray the shoes with a light coat of hairspray to hold the shine in place a bit longer.
Hold Clothes in Place
If you find that a dress or garment keeps riding up and becomes bothersome, trying spraying your skin and the garment with hairspray. It’s been found to keep the garment in place and preventing it from moving around too much. This also goes for shapewear! Don’t you just hate when your shapewear rolls down or moves around under your clothes? We do too. So instead of continuing to fuss with it, spray the shapewear and your skin with a bit of hairspray and prepare to be amazed!
Remove Lint or Hair from Clothes
If you don’t have a lint roller handy you can make your own version of a lint roller with hairspray. Simply spray some hairspray on a washcloth and/ or paper towel and begin to pat the towel/ cloth over your clothes – it will pick up the little pieces leaving your clothes lint and hair free.
