If you’ve got an area in your home where a mirror is placed over a piece of wooden furniture, chances are someone has used the spot as a vanity. Though you probably don’t mind hosting a last minute primp, sticky hairspray residue can ruin the finish of your woodwork, not to mention that it looks unattractive. Here are a few tips to keep your woodwork hairspray-free.

Get Hairspray off of Furniture

Soak a soft cloth with 70 percent isopropyl alcohol, and rub it on the hair spray stain.
