However, did you know that hairspray can be more than just a styling product for your hair? In fact, it can be a handy household hack that can help with various tasks around the house. From removing stains to preventing runs in stockings, hairspray can be an inexpensive and versatile solution for some annoying everyday problems. In this blog post, Simplify brings you five of the best ways to use hairspray in your home and discover how it can make your life easier.

1. Spray hairspray on stained clothes

Hairspray can be used to remove stubborn stains from clothing, upholstery, and even carpet. Simply spray the affected area with hairspray, let it sit for a few minutes, and then blot the stain away with a clean cloth.

2. Use hairspray to prevent static cling

If you’re tired of dealing with static cling on your clothes, try spraying some hairspray on the inside of the garment before you put it on. The hairspray will help reduce static and keep your clothes from clinging to you.

3. Repair a ladder in your tights

If your tights starts to run, spray some hairspray over the area to prevent the run from getting worse. The hairspray will create a barrier that helps hold the fibers together and keep the run from spreading.

4. Seal envelopes

If you’re out of glue and don't like licking them first, hairspray can be a great alternative for sealing envelopes. Spray a small amount of hairspray on the flap of the envelope, press it down, and let it dry. The hairspray will create a temporary seal that will hold until you can get some glue.

5. Keep flowers fresh

Hairspray can be used to keep cut flowers looking fresh for longer. Spray a light mist of hairspray over the flowers and allow it to dry. The hairspray will help the flowers retain moisture and prevent them from wilting.
