Dryer sheets aren’t only for freshening your laundry. There are many other creative ways to use dryer sheets outside the laundry room.
I prefer using a dryer bar. It’s lasted well over six months and is still going strong. If you’re like me, you have some extra dryer sheets laying around the house. I have over ten ways to use dryer sheets that don’t involve your dryer.
Ways to Use Dryer Sheets in Your Clothing…After It’s Dry
I put dryer sheets in sneakers that need a little refreshing.
I like to put dryer sheets in my clothes and shoes closet.
Freshen up a stinky sneaker by putting one inside the shoe.
I put them in my dresser’s drawers.
In the Winter, I put a dryer sheet in my jacket pocket to help stop static.
Ways to Use Dryer Sheets in Your Home
We use dryer sheets in our vacuum filter so the house smells good.
I use dryer sheets to line the bottom of trash cans.
I use them to dust around the house.
Place one in your air vent to improve the room’s fragrance.
Ways to Use Dryer Sheets in Your Car
I put one in the car, in the winter time, to get rid of static.
Dryer sheets are great for getting bugs off the front of your car. Take one and get it damp with the hose. Then, use it as a sponge to get the dried remains off.
Place one under the seat of your car to keep it smelling fresh.
Do you have any other creative ways to use dryer sheets?

Thank you for sharing with us on the Brag About It Link Party!
I’ve used dryer sheets dampened with water to get the soap scum off my shower doors. I also place them in all my suitcases whether they’re being stored empty or with valuables. It helps keep out the musty smell and bugs too.
Thanks for that tip. I will have to try it on mine.

Add one to those plastic bins your store things in. I have quilts in them and the dryer sheets help keep away the plastic smell.
Great ideas!! Thanks for sharing your post at our very first #LivingwithStyle Linky Party! I hope that you will link up again next Wednesday! ~Dianne
These are great ideas and I have another one for you. You know how some dogs get freaked out in thunderstorms? For many dogs, it’s not the noise, but the fact that the static electricity in the air makes their hair feel “prickly.” So, you can rub a dryer sheet over a dog’s coat and it keeps that from happening. Worked like a charm with my mom’s dog who spent a good portion of every summer in the closet!
By the way, I would love to have you post on my new blog hop—the Weekend Blog Hop at My Flagstaff Home (www.myflagstaffhome.com). It begins on Thursday evenings and lasts through the weekend, if you’re interested.
Thanks for the tip Jennifer.
