It was my granddaughters 3rd birthday this weekend, and I had so much fun visiting with her. After her ‘party’ we headed over to the beach for the day. The beach..my favorite place, and it didn’t disappoint me! We had so much fun playing in the sand, building sand castles and jumping over the waves.
What does this have with dryer sheets? Well, nothing really, I just wanted to share my weekend with you!!
Dryer sheets are great in the dryer. They remove static clean, helps with the wrinkles, and makes your clothes smell clean and fresh. But, did you know there are several creative ways to use them too? They are not just for your clothes!
Toilet Paper Roll
A sneaky way to keep the bathroom smelling fresh is to fold up a dryer sheet and stuff it inside the cardboard toilet paper roll. Every time someone spins the roll, the scent is dispersed!
Bugs On Your Car
A wet dryer sheet works well to remove bugs stuck to your windshield and the front grille of your vehicle.
Just as great on cleaning the chrome on your car, you can gently buff off water spots on chrome surfaces with a slightly dampened used dryer sheet
Floor Dusting Cloths
Company is coming and you’re all out of disposable floor dusting pads. Oh, no! Solution? Grab a used dryer sheet, install it on the sweeper and say goodbye to those dust bunnies.
You can see much more clearly when you’re sawing and sanding if you first rub your plastic safety glasses and face shields with a used fabric softener sheet. The exact physics is a matter of discussion, but this makes wood dust a lot less clingy. The key is to use a sheet that’s been through a drying cycle. It’ll be gentler and less laden with softener. Thanks to Travis Larson for this demystifying tip.
To ward off unpleasant odors, tuck several dryer sheets in with your sleeping bag, tent and hiking boots before you store them.
Because dryer sheets are all about eliminating static cling, used ones work very well as dust cloths, especially on electronics and mini blinds.
Keep Your Linens Fresh
When you fold sheets and pillowcases, tuck a new dryer sheet in between the folds and your sheets and pillowcases will be lightly scented when you put them on your bed.
Damp (sweaty) workout gear and clothes can make a gym bag really stink. Put dryer sheets in your gym bag to absorb foul odors and keep your bag (and your workout gear) smelling fresh.
