The Many Uses of Bounce

I've posted this before but thought I post it again as summer approaches.

The U.S. Postal serve sent out a message to all letter carriers to put a sheet of Bounce in their univorm pockets to keep yellow-jackets away. 

Use them all the time when playing baseball and soccer or working outside.  The insects seem to veer around you.

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

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

It repels mosquitoes so tie a sheet through a belt loop when outdoors.

Eliminate electricity from your television or computer screens.  You can also wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.

Dissolve soap scrum from shower doors by cleaning them with a sheet of Bounce.

To freshen the air in your home place a sheet in a drawer or hang it in the closet or put a sheet in the vacuum cleaner.

To prevent musty suitcases place a sheet inside empty luggage before storing.

To freshen the air in your car place a sheet under the front seat.

Clean baked on foods from a cooking pan by putting a sheet in the pan, fill it with water, let it sit over night and sponge clean the next morning.  The anti-static agent weakens the bond between the food and the pan.

Eliminate odors in wastebaskets by placing a sheet of Bounce at the bottom of the wastebasket.

Collect cat hair by rubbing the area with a sheet.  It will magnetically attract all the loose hair.

Use to wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. 

Eliminate odors in dirty laundry by placing a sheet on the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.

Deodorize shoes and sneakers by placing a sheet of Bounce in your shoes overnight.

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

And finally – put a sheet of Bounce in your suitcase when traveling, it will help keep mites or any other critters out of it.  While you’re at it, travel with several Bounce sheets and run them up and down your bed linen before getting into bed, it will cause all the critters already in your bed to run.  Keep a sheet in your suitcase even after you have unpacked to protect your suitcases from bugs nesting in it.
