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.
Pick Up Pet Hair
Pet hair can get a pretty tenacious grip on furniture and clothing. But a used fabric-softener sheet will suck that fur right off the fabric with a couple of swipes. Just toss the fuzzy wipe into the garbage.
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.
Walk Away from Static Cling
You’ll never be embarrassed by static cling again if you keep a used fabric-softener sheet in your purse or dressing table drawer. When faced with static, dampen the sheet and rub it over your pantyhose to put an end to clinging skirts.
