These are some of the best ways you can use a dryer sheet other than in your dryer.
The material that the dryer sheet is made of is great for cleaning and holding the scent of anything you put on it. You can use essential oils, rubbing alcohol, and lots more.
Spray Essential Oil
Make your sofa smell spectacular, spray some essential oil on a dryer sheet, and place it between the padding or under them.
Each time you move around, the essential oil will be activated, and the sweet aroma of the dryer sheet and essential oil will start to smell.
Shine Down Your Furniture
If you don’t have a microfiber cloth, and out of paper towels, the next best thing to use is a dryer sheet.
It picks up dust fast and easily and you can use it till you get the chance to get paper towels or a microfiber cloth.
Place Dryer Sheet In Your Garbage Bin
Ever garbage bin will have a nasty smell after a few months, I would suggest you wash the garbage bin twice for the month to have it looking and smelling amazing.
To give it an extra boost place two sheets of dryer sheets in the bottom of the garbage bin before you put the bag in. This will be effective each time you place something int the garbage bin, the bag will move and activate the dryer sheet.
Using A Dryer Sheet With Your Vacuum
We always lose things underneath the bed or the sofa , and getting them out can be a real problem. It’s either we can push our hands far enough to reach them or we can manage to move the furniture.
What you can do is use the smallest attachment to the vacuum and place a dryer sheet over it. You can use two elastic bands to hold it down as tight as possible, this will allow you to use the vacuum to suck whatever toy or thing that’s underneath the furniture without a problem.
Clean Your Baseboard
Most of us overlook our baseboards when we are cleaning, and that’s not good.
You can reuse old dryer sheets from the laundry to clean your baseboards.
You can either fold it neatly and wipe the baseboards down or place your fingers inside and wipe it down.
To clean the top of it, all you need to do is place one finger in the dryer sheet and run your finger across it. It will gather the majority of the dust just in one wipe.
Dryer Sheet On Fans
This hack is a fun hack, and if you have kids, they will love it. It’s summer, and the time is hot, and if you don’t have an A/C unit in your house or just don’t want to use it because you have some powerful fan.
You can place two to three dryer sheet on the cover of the fan, if you want to even boost the smell, you can spray some of your favorite essential oil on the dryer sheet and turn on the fan.
Your entire house will smell so amazing while you get cool down at the same time. How I do it is by taking off the cover of the fan and push one end of the dry sheet in and pull it back out over one of the openings on the fan cover.
If the cover is too hard to come off, you can just push it in at an angle and grab the next end.
Dryer Sheet In Luggage
Have you ever traveled before and when you take your clothes out of the suitcase they have a not so pleasant smell?
If that’s the case then I know your pain when your suitcase is in the closet for months and locked up it will start to develop an old smell that you can’t smell it until you put your clothes in it then take them out.
When you are storing your suitcases, you can place two dryer sheets in them and then put them away.
Before you start to use it, take it out like a week before then place your clothes in it and add a few more dryer sheets to it, and you will have some lovely smelling clothes each time you open your suitcase at the airport.
Place Dryer Sheets Where-ever You Store Your Clothes
This hack is a simple hack that will be so effective in the future, especially if you store some clothing that you won’t use for weeks or months.
For example, we store a lot of towels in one section of the cabinet in the bathroom or wherever you store them.
The wood will start to make the towel smell not so great after a while, so my suggestion is to place some dryer sheets under the towels and in between them.
Clean Window Blinds
Another amazing way to use dryer sheets is by using them to clean your window blinds. The material and texture of the dryer sheet traps the dust amazingly, so just take one dryer sheet in your hand and fun it over the window blind.
You can use a microfiber cloth to go over it after the dryer sheet took up all the dust. The reason you should do this is to give the window blinds a nice clean and shiny look with your cleaning agent.
Remove Bugs From Car Grill
Those dead bugs are hard to remove and will need something with a hard texture to get them off.
You have to be careful when doing this because it can scratch your car if you use the wrong thing to clean it.
Spray some rubbing alcohol on the dryer sheet and rub the bugs off.
The dryer sheet is soft enough but, hard enough to remove them without scratching the car.
Clean Burnt Pot
After cooking that lovely dinner or breakfast, you may have a burnt pot or two.
The traditional sponge that we have in our house will have no effects on that pot if you want to clean it immediately.
You would have to leave the pot in water for an hour or more. Get a new dryer sheet and fold it in whatever way you like and clean the pot without doing too much work.
If one day you come home from work and you take off your shoes, and someones say to put those shoes outside because it smells awful.
You can use a dryer sheet to fix that, place a new dryer sheet in bought shoes, and it will keep down the odor coming from the shoes.
Removing Deodorant Marks From Clothes
I have made the mistake a few times and putting on the deodorant before I put my shirt on.
When you look in the mirror, you only come to see four or more white lines that are hard to remove.
Use a dryer sheet to rub the marks out without wetting the shirt or anything. This hack can save you in a lot of ways.

In Your Car
A quick and easy way to make your car smell amazing is putting a dryer sheet under the car seat or in the glove box or anywhere you want to.
When the car is closed, and you go in it, it will smell spectacular each time.
Make sure not to place it too close to somewhere that may produce too much heat.
I know that dryer sheets were made to go in the dryer, but for safety reasons, I keep it away from the heat in my car during the winter.
I also added a few drops of essential oil on the dryer sheet before I place it in the car. You can choose whatever scent essential oil you like and put about 10 drops of it on the dryer sheet.
