I knew some of these things, but I ‘forgot’ a few. In case you weren’t aware, Bounce dryer sheets have so many uses, pick up a box next time they are on sale and they will help to make your life safer and easier.

Here you go:
U.S. 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.

Use them all the time when playing baseball and soccer.
It really works. The insects just veer around you.

All this time you’ve just been putting Bounce in the dryer!

1. It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near
them. It also repels mice.

2. Spread sheets around foundation areas, or in
trailers, or cars that are sitting and it keeps mice
from entering your vehicle.

3. It takes the odor out of books and photo albums
that don’t get opened too often.

4. It repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce
through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito

5. Eliminate static electricity from your television (or
computer) screen.

6. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static
cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of
Bounce to keep dust from resettling.

7. Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean with
a sheet of Bounce.

8. To freshen the air in your home – Place an individual
sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.

9. Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.

10. Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded
needle through a sheet of Bounce before beginning to

11. Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet
of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.

12. To freshen the air in your car – Place a sheet of Bounce
under the front seat.

13. Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet
in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean.
The anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between
the food and the pan.

14. Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of
Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.

15.  Collect cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce
will magnetically attract all the loose hairs.

16.  Eliminate static electricity from Venetian blinds. Wipe
the blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from

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

18.  Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual
sheet of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.

19.  Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce
in your shoes or sneakers overnight.

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

21. Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before
folding and storing them. It will keep them smelling fresh.

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

23. Put a sheet of Bounce in your suitcase when traveling, it
will help keep mites or any other critters out of it. While you
are at it, travel with several Bounce sheets and run them up
and down your bed linen before getting into bed, it will cause
all the critters already in your bed to run. Keep a sheet in
your suitcase even after you have unpacked to protect your
suitcases from bugs nesting in it.

All my life I have been giving ‘advice’ to people about various things. Most people just say, OK and go about doing things the ‘old’ way. Try something new, or that you haven’t thought of before.

One of my favorite ‘advice’ things is the magic word for finding things that you have misplaced. The word is REACH. I know this sounds crazy, but if you say this word you will go right to the spot where you left your car keys, cell phone, or even your misplaced letter or bill.

This also works well for golf balls you can’t find in the rough. I know this has nothing to do with Bounce, but just in case you can’t find that box of Bounce that you know is in the laundry room, just say REACH, and you will go right to it.

The amazing thing is you don’t even have to be the person who ‘lost’ the item. I have had friends tell me they can’t find something that they put down somewhere. I have said REACH and gone right to it. Don’t just ‘think’ it. Say it out loud. I’m serious.
