7. Heat up health aids
You use a microwave to reheat your coffee, so why not use it to heat and reheat gel packs for headaches? (Don’t do this with a metal-wrapped pack.)
8. Warm beauty products
Warming up a hot-oil conditioning pack for your hair takes about 10 to 20 seconds and feels marvelous, as does briefly heating up a moisturizing facial mask. (Stir the mask and test the temperature with your finger before applying to your face.) And if hot wax hardens when you’re only halfway up your calf, reheat it in the microwave. It’s much less messy than using a double boiler.
