I was recently looking for ways to help with my son’s awful and embarrassing foot odor. It is really bad, so bad, in fact, that I have had to replace his shoes with more frequency that I would normally have to due to just normal growth or wear and tear, which is getting costly. I’ve tried sprays and powders, and it helps a little, but not enough, and I’m still left with needing to replace the shoes, plus the sprays and powders aren’t cheap either.
This quest has taken me on a bizarre path. I have found that dryer sheets have a multitude of uses, more than I ever imagined. Yes, I said dryer sheets. It’s amazing how something we usually have around the house can be so beneficial in so many ways. Below you’ll find a list of ways to use these handy little sheets outside of the dryer.
- In your shoes – back to my original quest, I discovered that just by putting a single sheet in each shoe, his foot odor/shoe odor is improving drastically, and dryer sheets are so much cheaper than the powders and sprays and definitely cheaper than new shoes!
- Needlepoint – just run your needle and thread through a dryer sheet and it helps to keep your thread from sticking and kinking while you do your needlepoint.
- Do you have static cling? Just rub the dryer sheet over the problem area and problem solved.
- Cleaning your iron – just run your hot iron over a dryer sheet a few times until the residue that has built up on the iron plate is gone.
- Okay, this next one is for the used dryer sheets (recycling yay!). Sprinkle a few drops of water on a used dryer sheet and use it to help clean soap scum off your shower door. Seriously!
