WITH summer upon us many parents will be faced with the dreaded task of blowing up the inflatables.
Whether it’s a paddling pool or a pool float the chore is enough to leave you light headed.
But now a mum has revealed a genius hack for inflating things, and you won’t need to splash out on an electric pump.
Taking to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains, run by money saving mum Holly Smith, the savvy parent revealed that all you need is a hairdryer and a plastic bottle.
She shared a snap of how she had cut the bottle in half before attaching the capped end to the hairdryer.
Then, emphasising the importance of using the cool setting, she was able to inflate her family paddling pool in under a minute sharing a snap of her Labrador posing inside it.
