Can a hair dryer be used to thaw a frozen pipe?

Yes, they are a good way to warm up frozen pipes. Take a hair dryer and power it on. Take it near the frozen pipe and move it up and down. You will see water trickling down your faucet after some time. You can then stop. They are not likely to cause any fire hazard or melt plastics that often surround pipes.
