Handy Dandy Tips Using a Sheet of Bounce

I received these helpful tips in an e-mail and I thought my readers would find this useful as well. Who knew there were so many uses for a dryer sheet?! You'll be suprised at the variety of things a little sheet of Bounce can be used for.
  • It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them. It also repels mice.

  • To freshen the air in your car - Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.

  • Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.

  • It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't get opened too often.

  • It repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.

  • Eliminate static electricity from your television (or computer) screen.

  • Spread sheets around foundation areas, or in trailers, or cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering your vehicle.

  • Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean with a sheet of Bounce.

  • To freshen the air in your home - Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.

  • Wet a Bounce sheet, hose down your car, and wipe lovebugs off easily with the wet Bounce.

  • Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through a sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.

  • Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.

  • Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food and the pan.

  • Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.

  • Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.

  • Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or sneakers overnight.

  • Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them. It will keep them smelling fresh.

  • Collect cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will magnetically attract all the lose hairs.

  • Eliminate static electricity from Venetian blinds. Wipe the blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.

  • Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.

  • Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.

  • Golfers put a Bounce sheet in their back pocket to keep the bees away.

I must admit that I haven't tried any of these out yet, so if you have I would love to hear your feedback as to whether or not it actually works! Just leave me a comment about your experience.
