Bounce This Around

A fellow appliantologist sent me this list of cool things to do with a sheet of Bounce. And all this time you’ve just been putting Bounce in the dryer. Bounce this to a friend!

  • It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.
  • It also repels mice .. spread them around foundation areas, or in trailers or cars that are sitting and it will keep mice from entering your vehicle.
  • It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don’t get opened too often.
  • It repels mosquitoes – tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season – Golfers put a Bounce sheet in their back pocket to keep bees away.
  • It eliminates static electricity from your television (or computer) screen. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.
  • Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean with a sheet of Bounce.
  • Freshen the air in your home. Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet. Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner. Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.
  • Freshen the air in your car, Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.
  • Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food.
