Reusing Fabric Softener Sheets is a great way to save money! Not only that but you can also use fresh softener sheets too! We often times find these on sale so it is great way to use them if you have an excess. We can match coupon to a sale and even get these for free. So why not give it a try. It is better for the environment because you are up-cycling something that would normally go into the garbage and you are saving money by eliminating something that you normally would purchase.
Our reader Melinda takes used fabric softener sheets and use them in replace of Swiffer dry cloths. She keeps a basket above her dryer to store them in. She has been doing this for several months. She originally thought of it one day when she was out of swiffer dry cloths. She says they are also good for dusting furniture, lampshades and baseboards. I have heard that using unused fabric softener sheets actually repels the dust.
I decided to put this tip to action and I have to agree with her. Not only am I reusing the used dryer sheets, they were free to me in the first place because I used my Snuggle Coupon and got them FREE at the Family Dollar. This is a fabulous money saving tip that I am taking it the next level! I may just never purchase another swiffer refill again! What a money saver that will be. I have also heard of using a rag and washing it instead of buying swiffer refills. Do you have any tips for reusing fabric softener sheets?
Several other uses for fresh fabric softener sheets:
Mosquito Repellent - Rub a dryer sheet on exposed skin & the Mosquitoes stay away. You can also tuck in your shirt or under a hat for more protection.
Air Freshener - Place a dryer sheet in your vacuum to make your house smell fresh while vacuuming.
Removal of Crayon Residue - Remove crayon off led/plasma screens without scratching surface.
Removing Fingerprints - Use them on switch plates. They are great for removing fingerprints! You don’t want to use a wet cleaner near electricity so this is a great alternative.
Remove Dust - To wipe off computer monitor or TV -as it helps repel dust longer!
