What are some other uses for dryer sheets besides laundry?

I have put them in the heat ducts to freshen the air. What else can you do with them?

  • Put them in your shoes when you aren't wearing them and it eliminates odor. Same thing for luggage bags so they don't smell stale. You can put them in your chest drawers,you can put them in a pot or pan that has dried on food and cover with water. The next morning the food will pop right off. You can also tape them to your hat when you're berry picking, hiking or something else outdoors where there are a lot of insects. The insects wont come near you. You can use them as car fresheners

  • I use the ones that have been through the dryer already to clean my bathroom faucets. They take the toothpaste junk off wonderfully and leave the faucet nice and shiny.
