 5 Great Uses for a Dryer Sheet

Use Dryer Sheets in the Bathroom

Clean up the Kitchen with Dryer Sheets 

Burnt on gunk on the bottom of pans is a bummer and can have you dreading the tough work of scrubbing it away. Dread no longer, just stick a dryer sheet in the bottom of the pan over the gunk and top with a little bit of water. Let the pan sit for a few hours to soak and come back to a pan that is super easy to clean up.  


Freshen Up Stinky Spaces with Dryer Sheets 

That uplifting fresh scent you enjoy when pulling warm and freshly dried clothes from the dryer can be enjoyed in other places that tend to harbor an unpleasant odor.

Attract Dust Bunnies with Dryer Sheets 

One of the main jobs of a dryer sheet in the laundry is to draw static charge out of the clothes. Dust, hair, pet dander, and other debris are attracted to static charge. In a nutshell, dryer sheets are like Swiffer’s more budget-friendly cousin. Run a dryer sheet along your baseboards to not only remove dust but prolong it from gathering there again. Leave a dryer sheet in the corner of a room with hard surface floors to help attract piles of pet and human hair. Run a dryer sheet over all your hard surfaces to get your dusting done in a jiffy with little dust falling to other surfaces or spreading.
