Just dried a load of laundry? Don’t throw away that used fabric softener sheet just yet. You can repurpose a used sheet for a variety of practical uses around the home, such as picking up pet hair from your furniture, deodorizing your gym bag, removing static cling from your stockings, and adding shine to your mirrors and toaster.
You can also keep an unused fabric softener dryer sheet in your sewing kit to keep your sewing thread from getting tangled.
