Curling irons and flat irons can get really dirty and coated with hair product. Once they get dirty, they don't work on your hair as well, and replacing them can get pretty pricey. No worries–with just a couple of pantry items, you can get your flat irons and curling irons clean in no time! It's a good idea to clean them any time you notice that they are taking longer to curl or flatten your hair.
Make a Cleaning Paste
Mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide to make a thick paste. If your paste is too thick, add a little more hydrogen peroxide. If your paste is too runny, just add a little more baking soda.
Smear Paste on Area That Heats Up
For flat irons, it's the flat part, and for curling irons, the entire curling rod. Let sit for 5 - 10 minutes.
Remove Build Up
Using a sponge, gently work the paste into the area.
Wipe Away Residue
Your flat irons and curling irons will work so much better when they are clean!
