So Many Uses for Those Used Dryer Sheets!

For the times when line drying your clothes just won't do, it's likely that you toss a fabric softening sheet into the dryer along with your wet clothes.  When your clothes are all dry, you likely toss that used sheet into the trash (well except for the ones that stick to your clothes in somewhat obtrusive places).  What else are you going to do with it, right?  Believe it or not, there are a ton of options!

Here's a great list of things you can do with old dryer sheets to keep your home spic and span and smelling fabulous.  To that list, here are a couple of other crafty things you can make with them.

1.  Make a ghostly plant stake for Halloween.  Simply place a ball shaped bunch of batting (or, as in this case - dryer lint) and tie it off around a bamboo skewer. 

2. Handmade Mamas has another really cute ghost craft using gauze, but I think you could easily substitute a dryer sheet.

3.  Sew up a sachet for the lingerie drawer and toss in some dried up buds from the garden.  If you use scented dryer sheets you won't have to worry about adding your fragrant flower buds as the dryer sheet will still hold on to some of its own scent.  Add a little scrap of fabric and viola!

Do you reuse your dryer sheets?  Tell us how below in the comments!


  1. :) No reason to throw ANYTHING away!

  2. Thank you for your blog about used dryer sheets! You just gave me a great idea for how to use mine!

    I've been using dryer lint to add to my firestarters that I sell on Etsy, but I could also cut up and add the used dryer sheets too. They would be a great wick-type material!
    Thanks and I enjoy reading your blog!

  3. Good idea! I wonder if you'll get a fresh, clean aroma to your fires?? :)

    Thanks for reading and posting!
