Believe it or not, dryer sheets aren’t just for doing laundry. There are actually a TON of handy uses for dryer sheets that can help in things from cleaning the car to doing the dishes. Here are just a few of the awesome uses for dryer sheets that you would never even guess existed!
For areas that always seem to get dusty but are hard to clean, dry using a dryer sheet instead. Places like the blinds, lamp shades, and the TV are perfect for using a dryer sheet. It’s a lot quicker and easier than getting out the duster and the dryer sheet picks up nearly all of the dust.
Use the dryer sheet as an air freshener for your car, your home, or a particularly smelly bedroom! You can stick it in a vent, under a seat, or behind a fan. Just put it somewhere that allows the smell to freshen every corner of the car or room!
Remove Pet Hair
If you have pet hair all over you, but don’t have time to pick it off one by one, then just use a dryer sheet! Rub the sheet on your clothes and the static will pull the hair right off! Plus, it also freshens your clothes!
Keep Clothes Fresh
If you have a rodent problem, then try this. Just wad the dryer sheet up and stick it in the places you think the rodents are entering from. Obviously, this isn’t a permanent solution, but it can keep the rodents out for a while.
In Vacuum Bag
If your scissors have been feeling a little dull lately, then try using a dryer sheet to sharpen the edges. While it’s not the best sharpening tool, a dryer sheet can bring your scissors back up to expectations without spending a lot of money.
Remove Soap Scum
After a long day of painting, you usually stick the paintbrushes in water and let them soak, right? Well, to make cleaning even easier, put a dryer sheet in the water and, the next morning, cleaning out the brushes should be much easier!
Clean Dirty Dishes
If you have a particular pan or dish that just doesn’t want to get clean, then try this idea! Fill it with warm soapy water and put a dryer sheet at the bottom. Let it soak overnight and, the next day, the grime should come right off.
Remove Toilet Rings
Remove Bug Splats
After a long trip, bug splatter all over the front of your car is often an unsightly consequence. Instead of hosing the whole car down and tediously scraping at the bugs, just use a dryer sheet! Rub a dryer sheet across the splatters and the bugs should come right off without scratching up your car.
