Bounce This Along! and you thought is was only a fabric softner.....

         All this time you've just been putting Bounce in the dryer!



The US Postal service sent out a message to all letter carriers
 to put a sheet of Bounce in their uniform pockets to keep yellow-jackets


Use them all the time when playing baseball and soccer. Use
 it when you working outside. It really works. The  insects just veer 
around you.



1. It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them. It 
also repels mice.


2. Spread sheets around foundation areas, or in trailers, or
cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering your vehicle.


3. It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't
 get opened too often.


4. It repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt
loop when outdoors during mosquito season.


5. Eliminate static electricity from your television (or 
computer) screen.


6. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe
 your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust  from

7. Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean with a sheet of


8. To freshen the air in your home - Place an individual sheet 
of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.


9. Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.


10. Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through
a sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.


11. Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce 
in side empty luggage before storing.


12. To freshen the air in your car - Place a sheet of Bounce 
under the front seat.


13. 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 and the 


14. Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of Bounce at 
the bottom of the wastebasket.


15. Collect cat hair.. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce 
will magnetically attract all the lose hairs.


16. Eliminate static electricity from Venetian blinds. Wipe the 
blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.


17. Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet 
of Bounce will collect saw dust like a tack cloth.


18. Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet
 of Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.


19. Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce in your
shoes or sneakers overnight.


20. Golfers put a Bounce sheet in their back pocket to keep the
 bees away.


21. Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before
 folding and storing them.. It will keep them smelling fresh.


22. Wet a Bounce sheet, hose down your car, and wipe love bugs 
off easily with the wet Bounce.

Lori:  Your first suggestion about the mailmen using Bounce to ward off yellowjackets... leads me to guess that when yellowjackets do their laundry, they must not use... Bounce.  Ewwww... I bet their clothes are really stinky.  Whaddya think ?

What a great collection of great ideas.  Thanks so much.  Who knew ?

I would stay away too! I had to wash my clothes twice to get rid of the stink from the Bounce my parents used when I visited! I won't make that mistake again.

Lori, thank you.  I've heard it to be good for mosquitoes, but cleaning the love bugs from your car is new.  If I ever wash my car, I will try this.  lol
