5 Ways Hairspray Offers Holiday Help

Five not-so-common uses for hairspray this holiday season include:

Prolong the life of your Christmas tree with a spritz of hairspray to help it hold its needles.

Make great wrapping paper out of the Sunday comics. Hairspray will keep the ink from smudging and give the paper a nice shiny gloss.

Seal decorative ribbons with a light coating of super-hold hairspray to keep them clean and wilt-free.

Preserve dried floral arrangements by lightly spraying all around the arrangement to keep it looking “fresh.”

Protect Grandma’s secret Christmas cookie recipe. Evenly spray hand-written recipe cards with hairspray to make them spill-proof.
