Household Tip: Multi-Purpose Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets can be used for more than laundry!

  1. Do you have a baked-on mess on a pot, pan, or crockpot?  Fill the pot, pan or crockpot with hot water, add a dryer sheet, and leave overnight.  The mess should come off in the morning.
  2. Is your iron dirty or sticky?  Heat up your iron, then turn it off.  When it cools down a bit, iron the dryer sheet (with steam).  The dirty, sticky mess should come right off.  Use the dryer sheet to carefully wipe the indented surfaces of the iron if they didn't come clean; just be careful not to burn yourself.

There are probably more uses, but these are the two uses I can personally endorse.

  1. Thanks for the tips! I haven't heard about either of these before--and I'm especially excited to try out the iron one!
