6. Bandage remover. Ease a bandage off a wound by blowing hot air on the adhesive.
 

7. Heat leak detector. While some one holds a lit candle just inside a window, go outside with a hair dryer and blow air around the frame; if the flame wavers, the window is leaking heat. Repeat this procedure around every exterior door and window.
