25 Alternative uses for tumble dryer sheets...


I absolutely love the smell of Lenor tumble dryer sheets. Even though I don't have a tumble dryer in this house due to lack of space, I still use these dryer sheets all the time. They make the house smell delicious. Here's a list of alternative uses for these amazing little sheets :)

1) DUSTING- 
I use these sheets to dust - they are amazing at keeping the dust away, honestly! I dust my TV once a week with these and to be honest, I could get away with doing them once a fortnight but it's now a habit so I do them as part of my weekly cleaning routine. 

2) SHOE SMELLIES-
So if you have smelly shoes that smell even worse with the hot weather, stick a few of these dryer sheets in each shoe for a few hours, I guarantee they will smell so much fresher afterwards! 

3) DRAWER/WARDROBE SMELLIES-
These are fantastic at keeping away musty wardrobe smells, tuck a few of them in your drawers or at the bottom of your wardrobe, each time you open the drawers/wardrobe doors you'll be hit by that amazing scent these dryer sheets produce. 

4) WATER MARKS-
Got water marks on your shower door? Windows? Kitchen sink area? Scrub them down with a tumble dryer sheet and watch those stubborn water marks fade away with minimal effort.

5) ROOM FRESHENERS-
I stick these tumble dryer sheets tucked behind the radiators, they smell absolutely heavenly when the heating is on, better still you don't need your heating on for them to freshen up a room. Change them every few weeks, they're so cheap, why wouldn't you?

6) BIN FRESHENERS- 
I also like to stick 2 sheets in my bin before I've put in my black bin bag, believe it or not every time you open the bin to dispose rubbish you're hit with that lovely fresh smell rather than a rubbish smell. The smell finds its way around the black bag - even though it's underneath! 

7) DRYER CLEANER-
When you go to empty out your clean, dry load of washing from your tumble dryer, don't dispose of that used tumble dryer sheet straight away - nope, wipe down your lint trap and tumble dryer as they are amazing at collecting dust like I mentioned in tip #1.

8) HOLIDAY CASES-
A friend of mine recently went on holiday with children. On their last day he didn't want the children's damp towels/swimsuits smelling damp on the journey back home so he popped a few dryer sheets between the clothes and they didn't smell damp whilst they travelled home. 

9) VACUUM FRESHENER-
If your hoover/vacuum sometimes smells a little bit bleak, stick a dryer sheet in the dust compartment. Each time you hoover you'll be hit by a gorgeous summer aroma wafting through the air.

10) BOOK FRESHENER-
You know when you've had books for a few years and they begin to smell old and musty? Freshen them up by cutting up some dryer sheets and slotting them in a few pages, works a treat.

11) NAPPY BAG FRESHENERS-
Ever been out and about and had to do an emergency nappy change and there's no bin? Fear not, wrap the nappy in a dryer sheet until you have chance to dispose of the nappy - keeps all those icky smells at bay! 

12) CLEAN UP HAIR -
Cleaning up hair can be a nag sometimes. Especially if you're cleaning it up from lino and not carpet. Wipe along the floor with a dryer sheet and it will collect all the hair instantly!

13) STATIC HAIR-
Got static hair? In a rush to go out? Run a dryer sheet over your hair - it will eliminate the static and make your hair smell amazing. 

14) IRON CLEANER-
You know those awful burn marks, sticky marks and general use marks you get on your iron? Quite annoying to remove aren't they. Not with a tumble dryer sheet! Wipe over the cooling iron with a sheet and the marks come off and you're left with a nice clean shiny iron. *elbow grease maybe required*

15) CAR FRESHENER- 
Stick some sheets in the boot of your car, under your seats or even in the glove box, they'll help to keep your car smelling clean and fresh, regardless of it you have actually cleaned it.

16) GLASS POLISHERS-
Used tumble dryer sheets are fantastic at cleaning glass, try it!

17) BUG REMOVAL ON VEHICLES- 
These handy little dryer sheets easily remove tar spots and dead bugs from the bonnet of your car.

18) HAIRBRUSH CLEANER-
Clean your hairbrushes in a bowl full of water, add a few dryer sheets and leave overnight, then rinse and dry, your brushes will be like new! 

19) VENT SMELLIES-
Got vents in your house? Tape some dryer sheets across them to collect dust and allow the scent to waft around the room.

20) SHARPEN SCISSORS-
Got blunt scissors? Rub across them with a dryer sheet to sharpen them up and remove any gunk they've collected.

21) SCRAPBOOKING-
Use tumble dryer sheets for a whole range of crafts, cut them, stick them, roll them up... make cards with them, the possibilities are endless! 

22) WAX REMOVAL -
Got some wax somewhere it shouldn't be? Try removing it with a dryer sheet! 

23) INSECT REPELLENT -
Summer is great, insects not so much. Carry around a tumble dryer sheet, find somewhere to tuck it (maybe your bag, jeans..) to keep the bugs at bay!

24) TREE SAP REMOVAL-
Dryer sheets are fantastic at removing that horrible super sticky tree sap from your hands!

25) SKIRTING BOARD CLEANER-

Skirting boards seem to get so dusty, wipe over them with a tumble dryer sheet, they'll collect the dust and it won't resettle as quick.


So there you have it.. 25 alternative uses for tumble dryer sheets. They make everything smell amazing! Go try it...
