Benefit our future by reducing waste that heads to landfills; as little as that may be, it adds up over time. If you require a tangible benefit, save money, repel bugs, and freshen up your life in one of the following ways:

  • Place one under the driver side car seat to give it that new car smell
  • Place used dryer sheets in the bottom of your trash can before you add the new bag, It will absorb any drips or leaks and leave the can smelling fresh
  • Use them to remove pet hair from your clothes and furniture
  • Used dryer sheets make great dusting cloths for your wooden furniture
  • Use just like you would a Swiffer sheet on your floors to pick up dust and pet hair

    You can always skip the dryer sheets all together. Use a piece of fabric (I use a pair-less sock) dipped in an essential oil. Pop it into the dryer with your wet clothes and it leaves a pleasant, natural, chemical-free scent!

      Excellent idea. On my to-buy list: essential oil. Thank you.

      Do you reuse the same sock, redipping every time?
