Had a bit of a culinary mishap? Not to worry, we’re not all professional chefs and sometimes we leave that oil sizzling into a burning hot rage, leaving our pans all crusty and black.
You can scrub it tirelessly with a clump of gross steel wool. Alternatively, you can soak the pan with some warm water and soap and then push the dryer sheet into the soapy mix.
Make Potpourri Bags
Before you head to the home and décor store to buy expensive potpourri, think twice. And no, we're not saying compromise on a nice smelling home just because it costs a few bucks — we're just saying, make your own!
On an open dryer sheet, place a selection of your favorite fragrant herbs and spices such as lavender, lemon, verbena, and mint. Add some essential oils, tie the sheet into the bag, and voila! You have your very own custom-made potpourri that you can scatter around different rooms.
Preserve Your Books
We love our books, especially those old slightly weathered hardcovers. A stack of those in a warmly lit room that screams, "I'm smart!" Unfortunately, that kind of aesthetic often comes with an unpleasant smell and that's less cool.
This is where dryer sheets come in. A scented single sheet placed in the book will rid you of that old mothy smell, because, let's face it, bad smells should be stuck in the past!
For a Perfect Polish
The problem with stainless steel appliances is that it doesn't take much to turn them into a smudgy mess. Sure, anything shiny and silver instantly looks like next-level gear but getting those paws on the handle after a few times doesn't look pretty.
You don't need fancy sponges or detergent to get that stainless steel back to new. Simply wipe with the dryer sheet and polish away the shmutz. It's going to be as shiny as it was in the store.
Goodbye Windshield Bugs!
Getting around from A to B can be stressful, and sometimes when you're zooming around those roads, innocent bugs get splattered across your windshield.
It's not exactly your fault, they just happened to be living their lives in the way of a speeding car. Unfortunately, the mess becomes your responsibility. No matter. A damp dryer sheet can take care of that in no time. Simply wipe away the mess and your window will be as good as new.
