By now I am sure you never want to see or hear the word “BOUNCE” again after the dryer sheet craze at Target this past month. By the looks of all the pics in the Southern Cali Saver Facebook Group it seems like most of you were able to snag at least 3 FREE boxes and the REALLY lucky “couponers” have beautiful stockpiles full of dryer sheet heaven.
So, the topic of the week…what to do with all those dryer sheets once you have ran them through a cycle. Do you just throw them away? NOPE! The super frugal give the dryer sheet new life. After scouring the internet (and speaking from personal experience) I have compiled a list of great ways you can use that dryer sheet one more time:
- Sick of buying Swiffer cloths? Use a dryer sheet! Once the cycle is over, pull out the dryer sheet and attach it to your Swiffer. Works like a charm! Wipe down your baseboards with the recycled dryer sheet. Use the dryer sheet as a dust cloth…a quick swipe across the sofa table is all it takes! Wipe down your TV screen (gently of course!). The chemicals help to repel dust.
- Used dryer sheets still have quite a bit of fragrance…stash them under the seat of your car, in shoes, drawers, anywhere you want a “fresh’ scent. Dryer sheets are tough enough to polish sink surfaces!
- If you are REALLY crafty…turn them into flowers for scrapbooking and other arts and crafts. Here is a fun tutorial I found online.
Ok, now it is your turn…what suggestions do you have for giving all those beautiful, FREE Bounce dryer sheets a second life? I can’t wait to hear!
