How To Clean A Blow Dryer Without Ruining It

Whether you blow dry your hair every day or only a few times per month, chances are you’ve never thought to clean the darn thing. And you’re not alone. Most women are in the dark about keeping their hair tools clean. That all ends here, though. Just like your flat iron, your hair dryer should be cleaned regularly, so here’s how to do it without destroying it.

1. Unplug it. This should go without saying, but we’re going to say it. You don’t want to burn your fingers, right?

2. Locate the air intake. It’s most likely on the back of the dryer. Twist it off and be prepared to face gunk, dirt, lint and who-knows-what-else. Use an orange stick, a toothpick or a Q-tip to remove the build-up, then replace the cap.

3. Clean the handle. This is especially important if you apply product to your hair before drying it. Moisten a small towel with rubbing alcohol and gently wipe down the handle, making sure to get in the finger grooves.

That’s it! Say hello to an almost-as-good-as-new dryer!
