Why You Should Keep Dryer Sheets

Used dryer sheets make excellent cloths for dusting television and CRT (TV-like) computer screens. It’s often difficult to dust these sensitive surfaces because they’re statically charged, so dust sticks to them. You'd also have to be very careful with a liquid cleaner, as you don't want to damage the electronics. Dryer sheets, however, are statically charged when they come out of the dryer, and so they readily pick up dust.

  • Thanks for your input.

    Most dryer sheets and fabric softeners do contain terrible chemicals. But there are environmentally friendly and safe alternatives that are on the market. Whichever type you use, our goal here is to give tips on how to increase the use of the product, something you would otherwise throw out, and as such reduce the use of other products.

  • dryer sheets, by their very nature are unenvironmental. Let's see a disposable sheet soaked in chemicals...hmmm..

    Yes, there are environmentally friendly alternatives, all of which are in liquid form. I have yet to see a ecofriendly fabric softener in dryer sheet form. That's because they are a wasteful and pointless product.
