    Not mentioned specifically, but the used sheets are great in drawers, purses, cars and trucks, backpacks, etc. The mild scent seems to last forever.

    Tried that one. Didn't work at all but at least the dog smelled good.

    Like the tip about the cat hair. Can't wait to try it.

    Years ago DH was a scout leader and used our van for transporting Boy Scouts. When they would get back DDs would stick dryer sheets under all the seats to remove "boy smells" left from the camping trips!

    I hate the scent but have some in the attic to hopefully keep mice away.

    Also, someone a few days ago was asking about getting mothball smell out of a quilt top. I found this in a book - Seal in a bag with 3 or 4 dryer sheets, leave until smell is gone.

    For what it's worth. Haven't tried it myself.

    This cracks me up! Years ago I had a friend who was an elementary teacher. When she was pregnant, the smell of the little boys would make her (morning) sick! Before I had my son, my SIL told me to be prepared, little boys have this smell around them (she & I are only children so what did we know about little boys smells?). I said "Like a bad smell?" & she said "No, it's just a distinctive smell that only little boys have". And she was right. Where was Bounce back when DS was little? LOL! Maybe I could've just wiped DS down with it!

    Funny - I never noticed 'little boy smells' when my kids were little.

    I can pick up 'old man smell' though.

    Used dryer sheets clean mirrors and indoor glass (cabinet doors) really well. Also chrome faucets.
