{Tips to Try: Dryer Sheets}

June 12, 2013

I love learning new uses for everyday household items {see 25 things you can do with coffee filters here}, and I'm so excited to share these great uses for dryer sheets.  I hope they come in handy for you because they definitely have for me.

Dryer Sheets

  1. Gym Bag Deodorizer. Drop a sheet at the bottom of your bag to keep your clothes smelling fresh.
  2. Sawdust Clearer. Use a dryer sheet to keep your work area clean. One swipe will tidy up a mess.
  3. Iron Cleaner. Great way to remove gunk from the soleplate of your iron.
  4. Shoe Freshener.  Roll up a dryer sheet to slide in your shoes to leave them smelling fresh.
  5. Pot Scrubber.  The softening chemicals in dryer sheets help loosen food particles stuck on pots and baking dishes.  Place a used sheet in the dish, cover with hot water, and let it soak overnight. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning.
  6. Diaper Bag Freshener.  Slide one in your diaper bag to keep those stinky smells at bay.
  7. Static Stopper.  This is my go-to method to stop static cling on clothes {and flyaway hairs}.  Just rub dryer sheet over problem area.
  8. Thread Detangler.  To prevent tangles, run a threaded needle through sheet before you begin stitching.
  9. Scum Buster.  Wet a used dryer sheet and scrub on glass shower doors to remove soap buildup.
  10. Drawer Sachet.  Slip a few dryer sheets between your folded clothes to leave your dresser drawers {and the clothes in them} smelling so fresh and clean.
  11. Book Deodorizer.  Slide a dryer sheet between the pages of your books to prevent them from taking on a musty smell.
