This is for all of you crafty and artistic individuals out there. Any ideas about what I could do with used dryer sheets? It seems like such a waste to just throw them out.
Thanks for any ideas!!

They're great anti-static wipes; use them to dust your TV screen and computer monitors if they're the tube-style (CRT). Used ones are best for this because new ones sometimes leave smears from the conditioner stuff in them.

If you're a soapmaker they're great for wiping down plastic lye containers before you pour to prevent lye granules from jumping around due to static charges.

If you do anything crafty with vinyl albums they're great for wiping static off of those, too.

I've used them as stuffing for cat toys.  LOL  The cats didn't seem to notice.

I noticed the other day that they look a lot like fabric interfacing.  I haven't tried it yet but it might be useful as sew-on interfacing.

Yes! My mother-in-law uses them for interfacing. The less starchy ones work the best, if that makes any sense.

Using them for stuffing is a good idea.

This is kind of odd lol.  But, since some of them are pretty tough, you could sew them together and add a few layers and it could be a laundry-themed rug or make it bigger and  it could be the inside of a quilt.  If you wanted to be completely green, do that and use nothing but old clothes as your quilting material...

I know, that's dumb lol. good luck.

Such good ideas.  I seem to have a million of these things and its such a shame to just throw them away.  I like the interfacing idea.

i know you can actually re-use them. you just spray them down with fabric softener and pop 'em in the dryer like you normally would. Which goes for using a regular square of cloth, as well.

So if you want to eliminate the issue altogether, you could just buy a spray bottle of fabric softener and use a square of fabric!  Smiley
