Beauty Tip: An Unconventional Use for Your Flat Iron

I'm always looking for different ways to use the same old beauty products. So I was pretty excited to discover a brand new way to use my trusty T3 flat iron. Are you ready for this? You can use your flat iron as ... A REGULAR IRON.

Yes, that's right. The same iron that you use to transform your kinky, curly tresses into stick straight strands can do double duty as a household iron that does everything from getting out pesky wrinkles to smoothing clothing that won't lie flat.

I've been using it for the latter, and I'm here to tell you that this method of ironing WORKS. I have a few tops with necklines and collars that (annoyingly) turn themselves inside out. Before I started ironing them flat with my flat iron, nothing I did worked! Now it's like they never did this at all.

My one tip is to make sure you don't turn your flat iron up to full heat -- about halfway is all you need. 450 degrees (which is how I iron my hair) is WAY too hot for delicate silk. If you're really concerned about damaging your clothing, you can put it inside a pillowcase first, but I haven't needed to do that.

Have you ever tried using your flat iron this way? What are some of your unconventional uses for beauty products? Let me know in the comments!
