Don’t get rid of those dryer sheets just yet! Since Mary is always telling us to use dryer balls instead of fabric softeners, many of us may still have boxes of unused dryer sheets. Wonder no more. They have many other uses and some of them will amaze you.
- Remove the bugs from your car: Wet the hood of your car where all those nasty bugs left a gross mess. Then take a wet, unused dryer sheet and effortlessly wipe away the bugs.
- Deodorizers: Put them in a drawer or closet, under the seats in your car, in the vacuum cleaner bag, in your stored luggage, at the bottom of wastebaskets and hampers, in the pages of a musty book, in your shoes overnight, inside your tent and sleeping bag. You will be left with a pleasant, fresh scent.
- Pest control: Put them in and around campers, boats, and under the bed to keep mice away. Tie one to your belt loop or put it in your pocket to repel bees and mosquitoes. Lay them on the floor if you have ants in your house.
- Clean baked-on food from a pan. Put a sheet in the pan and fill it with water. Let it sit overnight and wipe clean with a sponge. The anti-static agent loosens the stuck on food.
- Dissolve soap scum from shower doors by wiping them with a wet dryer sheet.
