I unscrewed the clamp, and scraped the top layer of gunk from the barrel.
I couldn't find my oven cleaner so I tried spraying Kaboom. I tried spraying bleach and 70% isopropyl alcohol and still no avail.
I couldn't get much of anything off the barrel, and from all the hard work I ended up breaking the handle.
So in the garbage I threw it! *wipes hands back and forth on jeans* I'm glad to be done with that curling iron.
I thought that while I tried my hand at fixing my curling iron, I would work on cleaning the
dreaded embarrassing hair catcher from the family shower, but I couldn't help but give it a try.
Back side looks even worse with all the mold and mildew build-up. Yuckoo!
After, doesn't look 100% clean but much, much, much better!
Bye, bye yuck!
After scouring the internet for a suitable replacement curling iron, I came across this beauty.
Remington Ceramic Pearl-Infused Professional Curling Wand
(I'm not getting paid for this by Remington, but I'm just impressed)
Because this iron is considered a curling wand (no clamp) it comes with a glove so you don't burn your fingers. I have to say I was very intimidated by trying this beauty tool, so my beautiful daughter with long flowing locks offered her hair as my practice model, which I happily accepted.
I didn't curl every section of her hair because c-mon she has some wicked long and thick flowing hair. So I just curled sections and layers until I was done with the whole thing. Do you like?
I'm glad it worked well on her hair, but tomorrow morning will be the test if I can handle the curling wand on my own hair. Yikes!
