Stop throwing dryer sheets in the garbage bin! Those lowly items you usually ignore still have tons of wonderful uses. To repurpose them as cleaners and fresheners are some of the best hacks you can do. Check out more ideas below:
1. Tidy Up Messes and Spills
Sometimes, baking in the kitchen can end up in a powdery mess. Cake flour is spilled on the tabletop while sugar is scattered all over the place. Wipe them all with dryer sheets. It attracts particles quickly, which makes cleaning a breeze.
2. Repel Dust from the TV
As you know, one of the benefits of dryer sheets is their anti-static ability on clothes. Now try wiping your TV screen and notice dust and particles disappear.
3. Reduce Shoe Odor
If you don’t have the time to buy shoe fresheners, try dryer sheets as an alternative. Stuffing them in your pairs will help reduce the foul smell.
4. Polish Chrome
Restore the shine of your car’s chrome trimmings with the help of dryer sheets. It does a wonderful polishing job for faucets as well.
5. Mop Away With Swiffers
Cut the cost of buying an expensive replacement mop sheet for your Swiffer; reuse old dryer sheets instead. Though the dryer sheets may look thinner, simply fold more layers to make it more effective. This will do the same job of picking up dirt and dust on the floor.
6. Build a Fire Starter
Want to know an easy way to build fire for your fireplace or a camp fire? Take used dryer sheets and combine them with dryer lint. If you add toilet paper and fold them altogether, you now have a solid fire starter.

Stop scrubbing the food residue on your cookware. Hot water and a dryer sheet can do the chore for you. Leave it overnight and you’ll notice the food particles will soften. Now you can rinse easier.
