How to stop hair straighteners burning the furniture


We all have little problems that cause us stress day-to-day. You know the things: missing keys, tangled cables, or finding a safe place to rest the hair straighteners while they're still hot.


Here at Sugru, we see design flaws as opportunities. Such little irritations are a chance to roll up our sleeves and be a DIY superhero! Solve these, and you won't just feel the love for one day, you'll feel it every single day.


Sugru is ideal for this project because it’s heat-resistant and very grippy. You’ll no longer have to awkwardly hang the straighteners off the desk to let them cool down. Instead, you can place them directly onto the desk without the fear of damaging the surface.

For this project, you'll need one single-use pack. Need to stock up? Head over to the Sugru shop!

Step 1 – Roll one single-use pack of Sugru into two balls and press them firmly onto the hair straighteners. Then mould them into pyramid shapes with your fingers.


Step 2 – Flatten the points of the Sugru by gently pressing your straighteners down onto a flat surface.


Top tip: Use a little water to stop the Sugru sticking to the surface.


Step 3 – Turn upside down and leave to cure.


In 24 hours, you'll have complete peace-of-mind, safe in the knowledge that the hair straighteners won't burn the house down, or at the very least ruin the furniture!

Love is... Noticing. Thinking... and doing something to show you care.

As do-ers and fixers, with just a little time and imagination, we can give something so much cooler than flowers and chocolates. We can show we truly know our other half (or our secret crush as the case may be) and that we understand their life in all its gory detail. Keep reading for loads more ideas to show your friends and family you're thinking about them.
