Bounce Dryer Sheets

I got this e-mail years ago, and it's been fantastic. I actually followed some of he tips and they do work. My friends may think I'm weird for carrying dryer sheets in my handbag, but it always smells great, my hair is smooth and static free and my computer screen repels dust. Also, no one can sneak up on you and zap you with shuffle feet shocks. I hate that!

Did you know that:

1. It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.

2. It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't get opened too often.

3. It repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.

4. It eliminates static electricity from your television screen. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.

5. It dissolves soap scum from shower doors. Clean with a sheet of Bounce.

6. It will freshen the air in your home. Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.

7. It prevents threads from tangling. Run a threaded needle through sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.

8. It prevents musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.

9. It freshens the air in your car. Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.

10. It will clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The antistatic agent apparently weakens the bond between the food and the pan while the fabric softening agents soften the baked-on food.

11. It will eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.

12. It collects cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will magnetically attract all the loose hairs.

13. It eliminates static electricity from Venetian blinds. Wipe the blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.

14. It will wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.

15. It eliminates odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.

16. It deodorizes shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or sneakers overnight.

17. Golfers: Put a Bounce sheet in your back pocket to keep the bees away.

Okay...homebody geekdom over. I promise something dirty tomorrow.
