How to Clean Curling Irons of Hair Styling Product Residue

This DIY cleaning tip works perfectly to remove all stickiness!

Think of all the products that you use when styling your hair.  Those gels, waxes, mousse, texture creams, hair sprays, etc. can accumulate on your hot styling tools like your curling iron to become a sticky mess over time.  However, there is a way to clean off that product buildup easily that I want to share with you.

What you do is to take a little baking soda and mix with enough water to form a paste.  Get a clean cloth and carefully rub this mixture over the sticky area of your tool.  Rinse your cloth so it is not too wet, then wipe the paste off.  Dry your tool with another cloth and test how it feels.

If you notice any more stickiness, you can treat the tool again with more of the paste.  Repeat the process until you get a smooth feeling surface.

Allow your styling tool to thoroughly dry before attempting to plug it into your electrical outlet.  Honestly, you will be surprised at how wonderfully this little trick works to restore styling tools like a curling iron back to its former glory!
