Great Tip - Who Woulda Thought?

BOUNCE
FABRIC SOFTENERS

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 away. The yellow jackets just veer around you.

Some More Tips:


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

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

It also repels mice. Spread them around foundation areas, or in trailers, cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering your vehicle.

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

Repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.

Eliminates static electricity from your television (or computer) screen. Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from resettling.

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

Freshen the air in your home. Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.

Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.

Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through sheet of Bounce

before beginning to sew.

Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce inside empty luggage before storing.

Freshen the air in your car. Place a sheet of Bounce under the front seat.

Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The antistatic agent apparently weakens the bond between the food.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them. Keeps them smelling fresh.

And now that you know, print and keep on file or bounce (pass) it around.

Most of the tips do not work, unless of course the purpose of it is to make people buy more of the product that is...

Cheryl, those are good ideas!! Esp. about the yellow jackets, since the perfumes in Bounce give me a raging headache that would bring a horse to its knees; I'm sure that it would repel insects, because Avon's SkinSoSoft does the same thing, and it does work great at keeping away horseflies & mosquitoes and cuts grease, too! But I'm printing up the tips, anyway, for my mom & sis; I will keep my eyes out for Bounce unscented (I will consult their website). And since I consider myself to be a practical country girl, I will check out the Snopes.com website that Bumpy provided, they have provided me with good info. in the past I'll try the tips out & let you know my opinion! I'd appreciate anyone else's feedback, too! Susan

No, I think Americans are obsessed with cleaning/laundry products. Anything that makes anything smell wonderful-I'm hooked, too!
Good ideas, I'll print them & stick them on my fridge for reference!

I have to dispell 1 hint that doesn't work. Bounce doesn't keep the mosquitos away. I'm allergic to their venom so I'm always looking for help. Bounce did nothing!
