Re Use Dryer Sheets

This Sparked Me!

Instead of throwing away used dryer sheets, put them inside of your shoes in the closet to keep them smelling fresher. You can also sprinkly some baking soda inside of them as well. Just be sure to dump out the baking soda before you wear them again!

    Well if you DO use dryer sheets then this is another use for them.

    I don't use dryer sheets. I use those nobby rubber balls that they sell to put in the dryer to soften the clothes.

    Dryer sheets can clog your lint filter--you need to take the filter out and scrub it with a brush. (Or so I have read.) The article also said that you can't see what collects on the filter from the dryer sheets. emoticon
