My flat iron can do more than straighten my hair!!

After getting dressed recently I noticed a place where the hem was turned up on the denim skirt I had on - it was like that when it came out of the dryer. I was just going to leave it that way because I definitely was not going downstairs, pulling out the iron and board and waiting for the iron to heat, all to iron a 6 inch spot on my skirt (and then put it all away, as well).... that's when I realized I had just unplugged my flat iron and if I turned it all the way up, maybe it would be hot enough to fix that little spot!

I quickly plugged it back in and turned it on before it had time to cool off, waited a minute and then placed it on the spot and 'ironed' the hem of my skirt and it worked perfectly! I'll say this works for me!!

I've since used this little trick on another skirt with the same issue and I'm very happy with my results!

What a smart cookie you are! That is a great way to multi-task, especially for those of us who have to straighten our hair every day!

Good idea! I put on a dress recently that had a little tie in front that was curled up from the wash so I used my hot iron on it. Worked like a charm!

Now THAT is a great idea!

I don't use a flat iron on my hair right now, but I do have one. There are times when it might be quicker and easier to use that instead of an iron. Thanks for the idea.
