Dryer Sheets Can Clean, Polish, And Make Almost Anything Smell Fresh

The humble dryer sheet may seem like the uni-tasker of the laundry room, but in reality, it can improve your life in myriad ways.

Instead of discarding used dryer sheets, use them as a heavy-duty wipe that won’t leave behind residue or bits of fluff. Used dryer sheets can clean computer screens, polish glasses, remove deodorant marks from clothes, and scrub soap scum.

Or if you happen to have extra fresh dryer sheets (and not enough laundry to do), you can use their static-fighting abilities to tame your flyaway hairs, freshen up smelly shoes and gym bags, or hide them around your car for a fresh scent.
