11 Unexpected Ways To Use Dryer Sheets In Your Kitchen
Shine Steel
While many cleaning products can leave the stainless steel of your electrical appliances looking rather dull, a dryer sheet can beautifully restore their shine.
Simply wipe down your appliances with a dryer sheet in the direction of the grain. Use a brand new sheet or save money by reusing a sheet you just pulled out of the dryer.
Remove Stains
Dryer sheets contain conditioning ingredients for softening clothing, which also helps soften the stuck-on food and sauce stains on your glass stove tops.
To loosen food residue, wet the dryer sheets and set them over the soiled area for 10 to 40 minutes depending on the stains. Then, scrub them and rinse the area with a clean cloth.
Soften Food Residue
Use dryer sheets to clean stuck-on food residue on cookware, as they won't scratch the surface. They also soften the food, so you'll spend less time scrubbing.
Place a dryer sheet into the soiled pot or pan, fill the cookware with hot water, and let it sit overnight. Clean it with another sheet, then wash it with dish soap and hot water.
Add Fragrance
Dryer sheets come in various fragrances, so you can place them with your artificial flowers, matching their scent to the type of flowers in your vase.
Simply fold a sheet with the matching scent and push it down inside the vase. If you have a glass vase, you can hide it between the largest flowers.
Remove Marks
Dryer sheets can work like an eraser to easily lift away crayon or scuff marks on your table. Simply grab a dryer sheet and wipe it back and forth over the stain.
If you're working on a large area, you'll need to swap out the used dryer sheet for a new one when it no longer slides across the table with ease.
