Tips For Using Dryer Sheets Around Your Home! #PurexInsiders @Purex #Giveaway #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of Purex as a Purex Insider. I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% mine.

    We have kids and pets so I don’t have to tell you that there are sometimes some pungent odors around our home.  I’m always looking for ways to maximize our household budget and to use products that we already have around our home.  Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets smell absolutely delicious and provide 30 days of long-lasting freshness.

    Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets help to reduce static cling and always leave all of my laundry soft and smelling fresh.  Many people don’t know, however that these sheets can also be used all over your home to keep your whole house smelling great!

Here are some of the ways that you can use these dryer sheets aside from using them in the laundry:

  • Tuck a sheet into hampers to tackle the odor of dirty laundry.
  • Put a sheet inside of linen closets and other laundry storage areas to tackle strong odors.
  • Place a dryer sheet inside your clothing drawers to make sure your clothes always smell fresh and clean.
  • Rub a dryer sheet on your clothing before leaving the house to reduce static cling.
  • Keep some dryer sheets in the glove compartment of your car to keep that musty car smell at bay.

    I bet you had no idea that one little dryer sheet could be useful in so many ways!  For those of us who are pet owners too, Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets also helps to repel pet hair and lint on your clothing.  We have a Labrador mix with black fur so this is extremely important since we don’t want hair all over us when we leave the house.  You will fall in love with their scent just like I did as soon as you get a whiff of how delicious they smell!

Let’s Discuss:  Besides using them in the laundry, what are some of the other creative ways that you use dryer sheets around your home?
