Did you know that "Bounce" Dryer Sheets have many uses beyond the clothes dryer?

1. Bounce repels insects and mice.

The US Postal Service sent out a message to all letter carriers to put a sheet
of Bounce in their uniform pockets to keep yellow-jackets away.

Bounce will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.

Spread Bounce sheets around foundation areas, trailers, or cars (that are
sitting) to keep mice from entering.

Repel mosquitoes by tying a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when out-
doors during mosquito season.

Golfers put a Bounce sheet in their back pocket to keep the bees away.

2. Bounce eliminates odors.

Bounce takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't get
opened too often.

Prevent musty suitcases, sleeping bags, and tents by placing an individual
sheet of Bounce inside them before storing.

To freshen the air in your car, place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.

Eliminate odors in wastebaskets and laundry bags by placing a sheet of
Bounce at the bottom.

To freshen the air in your home, place an individual sheet of Bounce in a
drawer or hang in the closet.

Deodorize shoes or sneakers by placing a sheet of Bounce in your shoes or
sneakers overnight.

3. Bounce eliminates static cling and acts as a magnet.

Wipe your Venetian blinds, televisions, and computer screens with Bounce to
keep dust from resettling.

Collect cat hair by rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce. It will
magnetically attract all the loose hairs.

Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of Bounce will
collect sawdust like a tack cloth.

4. Bounce can be used as a cleaner.

To dissolve soap scum from shower doors, clean with a sheet of Bounce.

To clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan, put a Bounce sheet in a pan
And fill with water. Let the pan sit overnight, and then sponge clean. The
anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food and the

Wet a Bounce sheet, hose down your car, and wipe love bugs off easily
with the wet Bounce.

Feel free to Bounce this along!

I didn't know that bounce was still available. I can remember my mum buying them when I was a child but as we don't have a tumble dryer I don't look on those shelves in the supermarket.

Does this work with store-brand dryer softener sheets, too? I'm going to try it.

I use Bounce sheets to keep mice out of our lawn tractor engines when they are not in use. And I have put them under the cushions of our old sofa to freshen them and rid them of stale odors accumulated over the years. I will have to remember all the other uses you list here.

Thanks, I was aware of many of them, but not all.

I got a couple of free samples a while ago and they didn't say that ! They should put it on the packets.
