9 Super-Smart Ways to Reuse Dryer Sheets Around the House
Give these guys another spin
The sink… the sofa… stuck to your skirt: These wispy little culprits end up in the weirdest places. Next time you encounter one around the house, try putting it to use in one of these genius ways.
Pick up stray hair
Forget sweeping. Clean up post-blow dry by running a dryer sheet over your bathroom floor. It works on pet hair, too.
Degunk a toilet
Erase the dreaded ring with a few quick swipes.
Degrease cooktops and cabinets
The texture helps scrub sticky grease.
Replace a Swiffer pad
All out? Swap in a dryer sheet while you wait for your next Amazon order to arrive.
Deodorize garbage cans
Line them in the bottom to keep the bin a bit fresher.
Keep mosquitoes at bay
Scare away the little creeps by keeping a sheet in your pocket.
Remove iron residue
Turn your clothing iron, flat iron or curling iron on a low setting, then wipe a sheet over the surface to eliminate dirt and nasty product buildup.
Wipe down scissor blades
Over time, dirt and dust can make your favorite pair of shears pretty dull. Try wiping them down with a dryer sheet—and if that doesn’t work, cut through tinfoil.
Silence squeaky shoes
You heard it here first, people: rub the soles of your sneaks with a dryer sheet to eliminate embarrassing squeaks.
