there's soo many things for this!!! when u go outside, don't wanna put on bugspray? put one of these in ur pocket. no bugs, plus u smell good!  not really crafts, but it's pretty cool. got crap stuck on ur dishes? put a used one in it w/ water, let it set, and the crap comes right off! dusters..helps keep dust away. put it under the seat of ur car, keeps it smellin fresh! Cheesy my brother's shoes smelled soo bad! so my mom put one in each over night. they smell alot better!

Whenever I have one lying around, I use for something like involving glue or nail Polish remover. Like a diposable towelette.

I was just informed that they are good for restuffing stuffed animals and bean bag chairs.  So i bet they'd work for anything else that needs some extra stuffing added as well.

I use them on our hair too! It cuts static electricity.

I have also used them on the dog.  In winter he goes out and rolls and comes back with pieces of dead grass clinging to him.  I just rub him down and and grass falls off easily.  This means less sweeping and vaccuuming inisde.

I've used new ones as interfacing in coinpurses etc- something that doesn't need to be to stiff, or with appliques.....

....but even better, I stopped using them altogether by just throwing in a washrag or face cloth with a bit of diluted softner (need to dilute or it can stain). Works a treat.

my aunt uses them for dusting after they come out of the dryer.

my grandmother said something about that if you put them in stored clothes the moths will leave them alone.

hehehe I love my grandmother. last time i went camping there were like 10 dryer sheets in my husbands and mine sleeping bags. she must of really been worried about the moths.

Another thing I do with dryer sheets (or anything like Kleenexes or little scraps of cloth), is that whenever I'm doing something with crayons, I use it to rub off some of the color.

I use them for quilting. You take your scrap fabric and sew it on in an orderly fashion til covered, then sew those sheets together and voila you use up your dryer sheets and those little bits of scrap fabric that you stockpile "for a rainy day" into a pillow cover or other interesting things.

Exact directions can be found at quilterscache.com.
