Put that flat iron away … in a Hot Iron Holster, that is. Any parent wanting to conserve space on the bathroom countertop as well as safely store frequently used styling tools may be interested in the Hot Iron Holster available through TheGrommet.com for $19.95.
This ingenious silicone-made holster clings to any surface, including plastic, granite, glass, vinyl and even classy bathroom tops like my own — that fancy, stylish, unquestionable material known as laminate. The flap on the upper top of the holster grips to any surface, while a roomy pocket on the bottom provides a holding space for a flat iron (or any other device).
The brilliance of the holster is the silicone is heat-resistant up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning a hot flat iron (or other tools, if used in the garage) can be placed in the holder while in use and not melt it. This allows the holster to be used around the clock, whether a flat iron or other tool is hot or not. For someone who has lost countless flat irons that have fallen on the floor and broken, the Hot Iron Holster becomes an ideal storage spot when the iron is not turned on. And, because the pocket is sizeable, I can even wrap the cord of the hot iron around the device when the iron has cooled and leave the entire unit in the holster pocket.
Of course, the holster can be used in the bedroom, bathroom or the garage, though mine is clearly staying inside the house as a home for my flat iron. The Hot Iron Holster is available in four different colors, including pink, white, purple or black, through The Grommet.
