Three double-duty buys you need for your bathroom

Three double-duty buys you need for your bathroom

Bathroom cabinets overflowing? Then you’ll want products that really earn their keep: make a start with our selection of dual-purpose items.

Our lives are constantly on the go – both time and space are in short supply. So why settle for products that only do the basics, when we can choose ones that multi-task instead? Whether it’s finding clever new uses for bathroom staples or picking products designed with a dual-action formula, we’ve kicked off the search for double-duty items with three of our favourites.

1. Hairspray hack
It’s just the thing for adding volume and hold to your latest hairdo, of course. But when an emergency strikes, hairspray has another trick up its sleeve. Ink stains on clothes can be removed with a quick spritz of hairspray. Spray on, rub with a sponge and then rinse thoroughly: the alcohol in the hairspray will help to dissolve the ink and wash it away. Try Pantene Pro-V Hairspray for the trick – and for a great, glossy hold.

2. Head & Shoulders
If you’re looking for a shampoo that cleans and nourishes hair, leaving it feeling fabulous and shining with health, then look no further than Head & Shoulders. And if you’re looking for a powerful dandruff treatment that sweeps away visible flakes and treats that dry, itchy feeling, then Head & Shoulders has got you covered. There’s no need to stock up with multiple products: Head & Shoulders does it all.

3. Emery board trick
These aren’t just essential for filing and smoothing nails to keep that manicure looking polished. They also work wonders for cleaning suede items. Whether it’s a handbag, shoes or jacket that’s picked up some light soiling, just buff away lightly with your emery board to lift out the dirt and have your suede back in top condition right away.

Do you have a favourite dual-action product or a clever way to make a bathroom essential work double duty? Let us know!
