Use Fabric Softener Sheets as Dust Cloths

When drying your clothes in a dryer, you probably find the easiest way to have them not be full of static electricity when you remove them is to throw in a fabric softener sheet. These sheets are great because they help remove static electricity while adding a sweet scent to your clothes as they tumble dry. If you do not use fabric softener sheets in the dryer, you should try them. It will help your clothes come out of the dryer fresher than ever.

As we have mentioned in other articles, fabric softener sheets do not have to be limited only to use in the dryer. Try using them at other times. The scent will help make your clothing and furniture smell great, and the anti-static formula will help keep clothing from sticking to itself. As an added bonus, using fabric softener sheets on furniture will help make your housework easier. One of the biggest problems in keeping your house clean is keeping the dust out of it. Settled dust makes a house look old and uninviting. Unfortunately, it keeps coming back no matter how many times you dust. This little trick may not keep it away permanently, but it will help to keep your furniture dust-free for longer.

All you have to do is wipe those softener sheets on your furniture while you are dusting. The thing that attracts dust to furniture is static electricity. Since the fabric softener sheet will make your furniture cling-free, much less dust will settle on it. You will find that you will not need to dust as frequently, and when you do dust, it will be much easier to do. This is especially good for people with allergies to dust.

As an added bonus, you do not even have to use a new fabric softener sheet to keep dust off your furniture. After you have used one in the dryer, simply recycle it by using it as a dust cloth. It will still reduce static, and since it has been used, it is less likely to leave a residue on your furniture when you use it.
