My hair is very fine. It also happens to be pretty thin. So, I am a huge fan of hairspray! If I don’t use it my hair would be a limp, flat mess shortly after I fixed it. Even if I am pulling it up in a pony tail, I apply a little spray. Otherwise, the elastic would slide right out of my hair.
Hairspray is my friend. I love it. It is a product that I use daily. However, the downside is my bathroom always has a fine layer of residual hairspray all over it.
I wipe down the counters and sinks every day. I wipe down the door handles probably once a week. The problem is the floor. No matter how careful I am, hairspray always gets on the floor. Then hair gets stuck. It is an awful mess.
I hate trying to get the floors clean. I have to mop them at least twice before they are not sticky. Let’s face it, that rarely happens.
However, I was in the shower the other day, and it occurred to me that shampoo gets the hairspray out of my hair. Why would it not work on the floor?
I decided to test my theory. (I feel like I am a scientist trying to solve a world crisis. Let’s face it, this is not rocket science here. This is definitely a first-world problem.)
I hauled out a bucket, mixed in about a gallon of water with a fourth a cup of shampoo. I used cheap shampoo for this. I was not going to waste expensive stuff trying to get hairspray off the floor.
Isn’t that gross? I swept the floor before I mopped. All that hair and gunk was stuck in the hairspray on the floor.
I have to say I am pretty proud. My floors are clean and hairspray free.
