the dryer sheet : repurposed
Original Purpose for Dryer Sheet : Deodorize clothes & prevent static
I love TOMS Shoes, but I have a confession to make, they get REALLY smelly! I've tried baby powder, shoe spray, I even put them in the washing machine, but nothing lasted. Then, one day I had the bright idea to stick a couple of dryer sheets in the shoes!
To my surprise, it worked! Now, I keep a few dryer sheets in the closet & when I take my most comfortable (& stinky) shoes off, I throw some sheets of good smelling, odor grabbers & voila! No more smelliness!
BELOW is a picture of our entryway. This is the bookshelf we use to organize back packs, rain jackets, mail, keys, & shoes. It has been a lifesaver in the clutter department, but I couldn't figure out what smelled stinky when we came in the house. We try our best to keep our house clean, but for the life of me I couldn't figure it out. Finally, one day I realized, DUH! We have two shelves of kid shoes right when you walk through the front door! Yuck! The dryer sheets had been working with the shoes in my closet so I stuck a few sheets in hiding spots in the bookshelf & the problem has been solved!
Can you figure out where they're hiding? I bet you can't!
We now have dryer sheets hiding all over the house & car. They aren't as dangerous or overpowering as candles & last longer than sprays. You could even reuse your OLD dryer sheets to do the same thing, but I'd suggest adding a few extra since they're not as potent after being in the dryer.
