10 Uses For Dryer Sheets

Image Bounce Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets aren't just for use in the dryer! Over the years, I have discovered many alternative uses for dryer sheets. Check out a few of my favorite uses:
  • Remove deodorant from clothing- Simply rub a (new or used) dryer sheet on those embarrassing deodorant marks and watch them disappear.
  • Removing Bugs from the front-end of your vehicle- Soak your dryer sheet in water and swipe across the front of your vehicle to remove those yucky bug guts.
  • Collecting Pet Hair- Rub a dryer sheet over pet hair. The dryer sheet acts like a magnet and will attract any loose hairs.
  • Repel Bugs- Bugs hate the fresh scent! Rub a dryer sheet over your body and clothing before going outside to keep those blood-sucking mosquito's away!
  • Keep Ants Out- I used to have a problem with ants creeping into my bathroom. To solve this problem, I tucked a few dryer sheets into my window seal. Problem solved!
  • Deodorize Smelly Shoes- Place a dryer sheet in your shoes at night. By morning, your shoes will be odor free.
  • Air Freshener- Place a dryer sheet into your toilet paper rolls. When the toilet paper is used, the fabric softener will release a fresh scent into the air.
  • Freshen Up Clothing- Place a dryer sheet in your drawers to keep your clothes smelling clean and fresh.
  • Remove Static from Hair- The cold winter air can mean crazy static hair. Flip you hair and run a fabric softener underneath. Then flip it back and rub on the top of your hair. The static will be gone in seconds.
  • Remove burnt food from cookware- Place a dryer sheet or two in your pan and add water. Let it soak overnight. In the morning, the food will be incredibly soft and easy to wipe/rinse clean.

    We also use them in our trailer over the winter as the mice can't stand them. We put them on anything that mice can burrow into. That way, when we open up in the spring, there are no little suprises waiting for us. Mothballs work as well, but the bounce sheets smell nicer.
