Soap scum removal: Does your shower get soap scum on the door or the walls? No problem! A dryer sheet will remove all of it. Just rub it over the dirty spots and your glass shower door will shine like new.

Freshen up: The dryer sheets have a permeating perfume scent that will freshen your shoes, your clothing drawers, and even your old books.

Dusting: Dryer sheets will get the dust of every surface and leave a fresh scent.

Baked on food: Fill the pan with water, then float a dryer sheet in the pan. After letting it soak overnight, the food will fall off with little scrubbing. Super fast and easy!
