Dryer sheets can do so much more than just make your clothing scented and snuggly. Here are 10 ideas to get more out of your dryer sheets.
After you use a dryer sheet, don't throw it away. It makes a great duster for televisions, laptops, gaming consoles and more. It grabs dust and lint while leaving behind an invisible barrier that reduces static electricity.
If your room is smelling a bit musty, freshen it with a sheet. Remove one of your air conditioning grates and tape a new dryer sheet over the slats. When you replace the grate, the air moving through the vent will be pleasantly scented. Remember to change the sheet once a week to prevent dust buildup that can block air flow.
Save used dryer sheets to wipe down your sink, your toilet tank and other areas that need a quick polish. The slight texture in the dryer sheets picks up bits of lint and dirt better than paper towels.
You don't need to climb on a step ladder to clean your ceiling fan with this tip. Simply secure a used dryer sheet around the end of a long-handled paint roller handle with a couple rubber bands. The angle of the paint roller is perfect for cleaning the tops of the blades and the length of the handle keeps you safely on the floor.
If your oven racks are grimy, fill your bathtub halfway with warm water, add your oven racks and toss in half a cup of dish soap and eight dryer sheets. Let them soak overnight, scrub them down with the dryer sheets and rinse.
