Works for me Wednesday


Wednesday means it's time for another tip. More some great idea's visit Kristen at We are THAT Family.

Do you have trouble with your TV screen attracting dust? It seems like I can dust my TV and the next day, the screen is covered in dust again. I read this tip, tried it and it works!
Take a fabric softener sheet and lightly dust the TV screen. It repels dust!

I wear a lot of black stretchy clothes (8-}) that often get static-y. if I'm in a hurry in the morning I rub down the skirt or pants with a sheet of fabric softener.

I'm definitely gonna have to try this - the dust drives me batty! Does it work on dust in other places too? LOL

I've even rubbed the softener sheets on my dogs fur when there is static around. They sure smell good! :)

Great tip for multipurpose dryer sheets.

Kari said...

Oh I've got to try this one. I have that problem. I might try it on my computer screen too. Do you think it might work too?

Connie said...

Great tip - I'm trying it!

I have done this, and I agree...it does work!! Also, if you have a goodly supply of those fabric sheets...rub them on your exposed skin before going outdoors...it repels mosquitoes too.

I have done this and it does work.
I also use it on my computer screen.
have a great day

LuAnn said...

That's a new one for me. I'm surprised it doesn't leave streaking on the screen, but I'm gonna try it.

I like the mosquito idea, because my kids all get reactions to mosquito bites and swell up, the sites get feverish and knotty, so they have to take Benadryl as soon as they get a bite. It was especially bad for Sparky when she went to Africa, even though she took garlic pills. I'll have to send her with a box of fabric softener sheets next time. Those mosquitos over there probably don't get that April Fresh Scent and won't know what hit them, so they'll either leave her alone or have her for lunch.
