I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to remove hairspray residue. Obviously if you're using hairspray, when you spray it, it's not just going straight to your hair. It's not like a magnet. It's going to get all over your bathroom. Over time it'll build up a little bit, and whoops...if you find it hard to get off, you can use rubbing alcohol to remove it. If it's on your mirror on your counter tops or even your your curling iron. Just grab a paper towel and some rubbing alcohol and use this to rub the hairspray off.
