Dryer Sheet is one of the best inventions by man! They are little god send things to help you enjoy the one job that almost everyone hates – Laundry! They leave your clothes smelling fresh and nice and save you from the annoying static shock!
But did you know these little sheets can do some pretty amazing stuff other than the ones mentioned above? Read on to know the 15 uses of these dryer sheets:
#1 Clean your car!
Your car can often get covered in bugs, especially if you park it under trees a lot. The sheet will rub the bugs off your car but won’t damage any of the paintwork.
#2 Clean dirty fan blades
Fan blades can get dirty really fast and whenever you try to dust them, the dirt just goes everywhere else. Why not clean them with a dryer sheet so the dust sticks to the sheet instead of flying into your face and going everywhere else.
#3 You can sharpen scissors
Your scissors can go dull after some time, so why not sharpen them by wiping the blades with a used dryer sheet then cut it.

Fill your burnt pan with warm water and place a new dryer sheet on top of the water and leave it in there overnight. All the burnt stuff from the pan will come off very easily the day after.
