2. Dust Electronics and Furniture

Dryer sheets are fantastic at picking up dust. Grab one and gently wipe it over the surfaces of your electronics, like your TV or computer screen, and your furniture. The anti-static properties of the sheet will help prevent future dust buildup, leaving your home cleaner and fresher.

    I also use them to clean off my hot glue gun! Unplug then fold up sheet and wipe off tip and sides. Takes glue right off!
