Tip #8 – Dryer Sheets

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Dryer sheets can do more than eliminate static and help your laundry smell good.  Here are a few more ways to use them around the home:

  • Freshen the air in your car by placing a sheet under the seat – for bigger vehicles use a couple of sheets.
  • To freshen the air in your house, place a sheet under the bed or behind/in an item on a shelf in any room.
  • Use sheets to help clean up.  A used dryer sheet can be used in the garage to help pick up sawdust and rubbing an unused sheet on items will trap unwanted animal hair.
  • After returning home from a trip, place a sheet in your luggage to help eliminate odors and keep it fresh for your next adventure.
  • Help eliminate sneaker odor.  Place a dryer sheet in any shoe overnight or while in your closet.
  • I haven’t tried this on, but I’ve heard that if you hang a sheet on your patio during mosquito season, it will actually repel the pesky critters.
