      10 amazing alternative uses for dryer sheets: 1. Cure clingy clothes. With the swipe of a dryer sheet you can do away with clingy, static-ridden clothes in seconds. I suggest carrying a dryer sheet in your purse to avoid said situations. It will make your bag smell nice, too. 2. Scent your stuff. I like to tuck a fresh sheet into my drawers. I love the subtle fragrance they lend to everything stashed away with it. This is also a good trick for gym bags, suitcases or even smelly sneakers (ew). 3. Tame frizzy hair. Don't you hate it when you've just blow-dried your hair, smoothed on some anti-frizz serum and yet your strands are still determined to go haywire? Static + hair is never a good combination. To combat Medusa-like strands, simply run a dryer sheet over your tresses. Trust me, it may seem odd but it works like a charm. 4. Wipe away pet hair. Forget your lint roller. Dryer sheets are great for doing away with unwanted pet hair and lint on clothing, furniture–you name it. How do you think I get Chloe's coat off all of my black pants? 5. Repel bugs. I learned this trick while I was traveling in Tanzania (sadly, I didn't have any dryer sheets with me at the time): If you loop a dryer sheet around your belt or put one in your pocket, it will repel mosquitos and bees. Sweet. Wish I had known this in kindergarten during recess... 6. De-squeak Your Feet. Are those new rubber-soled shoes squeaking all over the office? Quiet them down by rubbing the bottoms with a dryer sheet. 7. Freshen your ride. I don't know about you, but those scented pine trees on a string tend to give me a headache. Instead, slip a few dryer sheets under the seats in your car. It will keep your whole car smelling so fresh and so clean. 8. Dust it up. Dryer sheets can be used on nearly any surface to do away with dust. 9. Help your hairbrushes. Clean brushes mean clean hair. Fill a bowl with warm water, add a couple dryer sheets and then place your hairbrushes and combs into the mixture. Let it soak for a few hours. Rinse. Dry. And voila–your brushes are like new! 10. Ditch deodorant stains. Use a dryer sheet to wipe away unwanted deodorant stains on your clothes
