Quick Tip - Air Freshener in a Pinch!

Company coming? Smelly bathroom? Laundry hamper? Shoe cabinet? Here's a quick fix in a pinch -- dryer sheets! No kidding. All you need is clothes pins & dryer sheets. I spent way too much time in the store, sniffing boxes of dryer sheets, trying to find the best-smelling ones. My nose finally landed on a winner! The downside is they don't last long. The upside is they will last through your visit with Auntie Maude!



Tip 1: Place an unopened box of your favorite dryer sheets in your linen closet. Those linens will smell lovely close to forever!

Tip 2: Use a clothes pin to secure a dryer sheet (still folded) to your vent register(s). Your bathroom, hallway, bedroom will smell very nice & fresh for a few days.

Tip 4: Place a dryer sheet inside the lid of your smelly clothes hamper. (Like I said, this is a quick fix -- you will still have to launder them eventually!

Tip 5: Dust your furniture with a dryer sheet that has already been through the dryer. The dust will be gone, gone, gone, and you may actually enjoy dusting because it smells so good!
