It’s an age old problem that’s seemingly never spoken of: The struggle to find a safe place to set down your hair straighteners and curling irons. Keeping a hot iron balancing on a sink close to running water can be dangerous. A curling iron mistakenly placed on wood can scald the surface. And that’s all not to mention the necessity of keeping children and pets away from heat styling tools.

The Hot Iron Holster is a downright problem solver, giving you a place to set down hot styling tools while they’re in use or while they’re cooling down. The holder has a large pocket for holding styling tools of all sizes, and a flap that grips onto any household surface. The holder can cling to tile, wood, laminate, granite, metal, glass, vinyl, porcelain, plastic and more. Plus you can move it as many times as you need without it losing its gripping capabilities.

You can also keep hot tools in the holder after use and throw in a bag, like if you’re on-the-go after the gym or packing for a last-minute trip. The silicon can resist heat up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. 

One reviewer writes, “This is exactly what I was looking for. I have a small sink and my flat iron kept sliding off. I used a potholder to keep it from burning the counter. This little beauty holds my flat iron while it heats up and keeps it in one place. And I can leave my iron in the holster until it cools off enough to put away. Yep. I like it. I like it a lot.”

The holder comes in pink, purple and black, only costing $19.95. It cleans easily with water or rubbing alcohol, and is also dishwasher-safe. Now that’s a problem solver if I’ve ever seen one.
