If you’re doing several loads of laundry, it’s not difficult to find use for dryer sheets. But did you know that those little pieces of flimsy fabric that fight dryer static and odors can come in handy cleaning the rest of the house?

Try using one to clean off the screen on your TV set or to dust the venetian blinds. These two areas are nearly impossible to clean well because the static electricity they generate holds dust like a magnet. Because the dryer sheet is designed to dissipate static cling, it’s ideal for these cleaning jobs.

These sheets are good for one or two uses in the dryer, but after that you can re-use them as polishing cloths. The smooth, lint-free fabric is perfect for shining up plumbing fixtures, like faucets and tub spouts.
