5 Things To Do with Fabric Softener
Think fabric softener is just for your laundry? Both the liquid and dryer sheets can save you a bundle of trouble around the house.
Reduce static cling on your TV screen and computer monitor by dusting with a fabric-softener sheet.
Clean Glass Surfaces
Clean glass tables, shower doors and other hard surfaces, and repel dust with liquid fabric softener. Mix 1 part softener into 4 parts water and store in a spray bottle, such as an empty dishwashing liquid bottle. Apply a little solution to a clean cloth, wipe the surface and then polish with a dry cloth.
Repel Dust from Electrical Appliances
Because television and PC screens are electrically charged, they actually attract dust, making dusting them a never-ending chore, but not if you dust them with used fabric-softener sheets. These sheets are designed to reduce static cling, so they remove the dust and keep it from resettling for several days.
A Safe Mosquito Repellent
For a safe mosquito repellent, look no further than the laundry. Save used dryer fabric-softener sheets and pin or tie one to your clothing when you go outdoors to help repel mosquitoes.
