I use hairspray on spiders, while it dries, they lose their legs. Yes, I am terrified of spiders.
Hairspray works well when you have a ruin in your pantyhose. Also nail polish.
Hairspray does take out ink from some things. I saved a great dress when a pen leaked in the pocket, but it didn't work on a shirt with different fabric:( As for the bugs thing, it works somewhat, and smells much better than bug spray! And it does attract bees as one commenter mentioned, but so does some shampoo/conditioner. We use it to prolong dried flower arrangements, cat-tails, and dandelions the children pick for mom.
If you get ink on your clothes, spray with hairspray. Let it sit for a minute or two and then rub fabric together. Most ink will come out. Sometimes it will take a second spray. Then just throw it in the washer. When clothes are done washing, ink will be gone.
Tips for using hair spray. Buy a "Shaper" spray, and a separate "Freezing" spray, generic brands are o.k. Sebastian is one of the originators, I believe, yet there are generics now at great reductions in cost.
I wear contacts and also use hair spray, I found that spraying my hair after putting on a sun visor keeps the hair spray out of my eyes and off my face...
