    Hey Jack, Glad you liked the dryer-sheet tip. I’ve not personally tried using them to clean a TV or monitor, but I can’t imagine how they’d cause scratches. The spent sheets are pretty soft and supple. Thanks for writing and good luck!—Joe T.

    Joe,

    Great tip however is there any concern about a dryer sheet scratching a computer or TV screen? It worked just like you said on blinds and they smelled nice afterwards!

    Thanks Joe – Great tip!
    Another use for dryer sheets – after use in the dryer, don’t throw them away – put one in each of your sneakers and they work great as odor eaters!
