Did you know that hairspray does so much more than just set your hair? I have a few ways I have used hairspray that I would love to share with you.

Preserve Artwork & Recipe Cards

Spray some hairspray onto your artwork and recipe cards to preserve them.

Thread A Needle Easier

Spray a little hairspray on the end of the thread and let it dry.

It’ll make it much easier to push through the hole on a needle.

Remove Ink Stains

Spray a little hairspray onto the ink stain.

Blot with a damp cloth.

Repeat spray & blot until the ink is gone.

Decorate A Recycled Jar

Pour hairspray into a recycled jar.

Twist the jar so that the hairspray coats the entire inside of the jar. Dump out the hairspray when your done coating.

Pour glitter into the jar and twist the jar making sure the glitter sticks to the hairspray inside. Dump out the extra glitter and let it dry completely.

Use it around your home to hold things like make up brushes, pens, or turn it into a beautiful candle holder.

Remove Pet Hair

Spray hairspray onto a rubber glove.

Wipe the fabric with the pet hair with your glove.

The hair will stick to the hairspray on the glove. Rinse your glove off and repeat the process.

Preserve Flowers

Spray your flowers with hairspray and let them dry out. The hairspray helps them last longer and then as the flowers dry helps preserve them.

These are flowers from my bouquet that I sprayed, let dry, and made this display.  They still look colorful and great 21 years later 🙂

Static Stopper, Prevent Runs On Pantyhose, Help Make Up Last, and Dry fingernail Polish faster!

Got static?  Spray it with a little hairspray and it’ll go away. 

Spray your pantyhose and it’ll help prevent runs. 

A stage secret – spray your make up lightly after you’ve put it on and it’ll last longer. 

After painting your nails, spray it with a little hairspray and it’ll dry faster.

  • These are great tricks. I’ll have to use that for threading a needle for sure.
    As for the pet hair, I find that just putting water on my hand does the same thing!!

  • Wow! Who knew hairspray would work for so many things? The funny thing is that I keep a bottle around, but I never use it on my hair. LOL I’ve used it for ink on clothing before putting in the wash. Now I have a lot more ideas I can use.

    • Thank you so much Linda, and the secret is the alcohol that’s inside for that one 😉 I’m glad you use some of these and found a few more.

  • Hi,
    Just thought I would pass along that I also use hairspray to spray flying insects that sneak into my home such as yellow jackets, and wasps. When sprayed their wings become sticky and they will fall to the floor and can be disposed of. Also it is less toxic than chemical bug sprays.

  • My favorite tip this week is cleaning up pet hair!

    • Thank you so much for sharing Terri. My daughter has a guinea pig and that one is one she needed to learn to help remove the hair before putting hairy stuff in the washer 🙂

  • I’ve got cans of hairspray but don’t use it on my hair so this is perfect! Thanks for sharing those little tips at the Mark and Jan Show Let’s Party!

  • These are some great ideas to repurpose hair spray that I didn’t know about. Had I known about removing ink stains off clothes, my kids would still have some of their tops I threw out. Thanks for linking this post with us at #OMHGWW and hope to see you next week.

  • Wow I didn’t know many of these hairspray hacks. Found you on Traffic Jam Weekend Linky Party.

  • Wow. Who knew? Not me! I will remember to grab my hairspray to get rid of the next ink stain! Thanks for the tips!

  • I’ve used hairspray on art done with pastels or chalks to stop it all coming off everywhere, I remember learning that trick in art class at school but the rest – wow – who knew? Apart from you of course and now us!!

  • I had not heard of some of these. I always wonder if I am suppose to use aerosol or pump hair spray…

    • Thank you Nikki and I tried to get away from aerosol but with all the dance performances sometimes that just works better for certain things.

  • Thank you for sharing at #OverTheMoon. Pinned and shared.

  • I’m just sitting here reading this saying “Wow, this is amazing” I definitely need the pet hair one and the glitter jars. Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday

    • Thank you so much Jenny and I’m thrilled you liked some of these too. Our household needed the pet hair and I love making those glitter jars – great gifts and so many possibilities.
