Dryer sheets are incredible little products. Many people think the only way to use them is, well, as a laundry product.

There are actually a number of other ways you can use these scented sheets. Check out six of the most clever ways to use them!

  1. To clean stuffed animals: If your fluffy pal gets a little dirty, use a dryer sheet to sweep the dirt off the toy. Not only will it be cleaner, it will also smell good!
  2. To remove pet fur: Chances are, if you have a pet, their fur is everywhere. Instead of using a lint roller, use a dryer sheet to lift the hair from your furniture.
  3. To sharpen dull scissors: Scissors get dull pretty quickly, so if your scissors refuse to cut, wipe down each blade with a dryer sheet to sharpen it.
  4. To clean wineglasses: If your wineglasses have water stains on them, use dryer sheets to wipe them down.
  5. To freshen up stinky sneakers: Place smelly shoes in front of a box fan, and put dryer sheets on the back of the fan to make the sneakers smell nice again.
  6. To keep hairbrushes hair-free: Cut down a dryer sheet to size and press it over the tines of the brush. When it’s full of hair, simply pull the dryer sheet off and throw it away.
