Save Yourself Time and Money Without Sacrificing Quality with Arm & Hammer Fabric Softener Sheets! PLUS $25 Visa Card Giveaway

I have to say, I am pretty proud of myself so far this Summer. For the first time in ages, I go to bed with  empty laundry bins each night and it's not because my kids are wearing less clothes!  I have just really come up with some great ways to keep on top of things over the past month or so and I have to admit, I'm pretty surprised myself!!!  Laundry has always been my worst enemy so the fact that I am able to keep up with it has definitely made me extremely happy!  We have been using the Arm and Hammer Essentials Fabric Softener Sheets Lavender and Linen now for nearly a month and I can honestly say, they have really grown on me! I have always been a liquid fabric softener kind of girl but these fabric softener sheets are pretty great because I can do so much more with them than just use them in my laundry!

Other ways I have found that I can use Arm and Hammer Fabric Softener Sheets:

* Put them under bed sheets when you make the bed to keep your bedroom smelling fresh and clean!


*Tuck them in your picnic basket or under lawn furniture or rub right on the skin to repel bugs

* Tuck a few in your drawers to keep clothes smelling clean

*Use to scrub your shower/tub

*Place on your HVAC vents to circulate the scent throughout your home

*Place them in your suitcase while traveling...keeps your clothes smelling fresh

* Pick up pet hair off of furniture

*Put them under car seats to keep car smelling fresh

*Soak a few along with hot water in a casserole dish overnight to get burnt food off of the dish

*Tuck them in your kids (or hubby's!) stinky shoes overnight for an instant freshener

*Buff Chrome

Have you ever used fabric softener sheets for anything else besides the dryer?

  1. I used a fabric softener sheet to freshen up my son's shoes! I put it in his shoe overnight and they smelled much better the next morning. ;-)

  2. One time. I read somewhere that if you burn something in a pot that you can soak a fabric softener sheet and it will help things loosen up so you can scrub it off. Not true in my experience. Also the last time I allow my father in laws girlfriend to cook in my kitchen.

  3. Yes, I use them to freshen up the couch :)

  15. I've put them in the under bed container with our sheet sets to help keep them smelling fresher. I've also used them to help with static cling on clothes like dresses & skirts.

  16. Nope, we never have used them for anything else that I can recall.

  17. I use them to pack away off season clothing and bedding since our house is too small to keep these items in our bedrooms, they need to be packed in bins and bags and put into the basement. They smell good then when we need to bring them out for overnight guests and dont need a rewash unnessesarily.

    thanks Sarah!

  23. i tape one to the opening of the cat's litter box, it keeps the air smelling fresh (as well as the cat since her back brushes the against the dryer sheet when going in and out of the litter box)

  24. we have actually put them in our pockets to keep the bugs away at night.

  25. When I winterize the trailer, and pack everything away in the totes, I place fabric softner sheets between the layers of the linens so when I unpack them in the spring, they are fresh smelling.
