Q. I recently started using a flat iron and I’m getting frustrated trying to figure out how to store it while it’s still hot. Any suggestions?
A. What you need is a heat-resistant silicone hair tool holder. The Hair Straightener Holder is a good example. It’s designed to keep a hot flat iron or curling iron safely stored on the bathroom counter, and it also folds up easily for travel. Heat resistant up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, it can store any curling iron or flat iron measuring up to 1-1/2 inches in diameter. A plug catch on the side keeps an electrical cord tidy and easily accessible.
The Curling Iron Storage Rack Hot Sleeve is another space-saving option–it can be hung from a towel bar.
