Purex Fabric Softener Sheets + Giveaway

GIVEAWAY IS OVER! Thanks to all who participated! See the winners here.


About a month ago I got the opportunity to try the new Purex Fabric Softener Sheets. Never having been a fan of dryer sheets (one more thing to throw away), I knew via pinterest that there were a ton of excellent uses for dryer sheets even if you didn't use them in the dryer.

First let me just say that even before you pull the softener sheets out of the box, the smell is incredibly strong. It's a nice smell, but it is a STRONG smell.

Now, here are a few of my favorite ideas for fabric softener sheets:

1. As air fresheners - I've seen lots of ideas from putting a sheet or two in your shoes to diaper bags and even in your luggage (so that your clothes don't smell like the dirty socks you wore a few days before). Before having used the Purex fabric softeners, I definitely noticed the smell merely walking into my living room while they were taking up residence on my couch. Oh how the smell of mountain breeze filled the room! (Because Purex fabric softener sheets have such a strong smell, I would definitely consider cutting the sheet in halves or quarters for placing in small areas like luggage or shoes.)

2. To clean paint brushes - While I don't paint as much as I would like, I truly like the idea of an easy clean up job. How much more fun would painting be if it didn't take so long to get the paint off the brushes?! I'm telling you that it would make a world of difference! It is recommended that you place the paintbrushes into a container with warm water. When you pull the paintbrushes out, use the fabric softener to get latex paint off the brushes. I haven't tried it, but it sounds easy enough!

3. Dryer sheet art? - Apparently, it's a thing.

4. To clean - You can use dryer sheets for dusting the tv screen, cleaning your glasses, or swiffering your floor ... even cleaning up those stupid flour messes when your husband bakes bread. Then when you are done with all of that you can take them to polish your chrome (on your car or faucets), remove soap scum from the bathroom, or put a sheet in your vacuum where the air is released to make the whole house smell like newly dried clothes. Apparently you can even stick a dryer sheet in a pot with baked on food articles with some water and let it sit over night giving it just enough time to soften the food and allow it to come out with ease! (I think I could have made a list just on ways to clean with a dryer sheet!)

5. Static and Pet Hair Remover - I'm guessing dryer sheets would do this anyway if you stuffed them in the dryer with your clothes. Some of us are lazy though and wait until we actually have the static and pet hair to deal with and no lint roller. Swipe your dryer sheet against your clothes and voila! Good as new again! (It even works to remove static from your hair!)

6. Bug repellent - As a mosquito magnet (I hear it's in the genes), I'm definitely interested in the stuff-a-dryer-sheet-in-your-pocket-to-keep-mosquitos-away method. Will it work? I'll be one of the first to know. If I come in all itchy, I'm going after the people who recommended it. ;)

7. Crayon Remover - For those of you with kids, I hear that dryer sheets are a super awesome tool at removing crayon from wood furniture. Anybody want to test this one for me?

8. Fire Starter - When you are done with all of the above and you still don't know what to do with your leftover dryer sheets, the dryer sheets (and their cardboard boxes) make for a great fire starter! (Perhaps aromatic as well?)

Now that you know all of these wonderful ways to use some Purex Fabric Softener Sheets, how about we do another giveaway (open to US residents only)? The last giveaway was awash (perhaps if I had used fabric softener sheets...), but I'm open to trying it out again. If you are interested in receiving a coupon for a free box of Purex Fabric Softener sheets in either sweet lavender or mountain breeze scent (good until 12/31/14), leave me a comment below. I will randomly select two commenters (with e-mail addresses) who have commented before 5pm est on August 13th.

** I received a free sample of Purex fabric softener sheets to try and coupons for this review.
