If you use fabric softener sheets in your dryer, tear each sheet in half and use a half sheet per load. A half sheet provides enough anti-static treatment for a full load of clothes and you'll get double your money's worth. In addition you only put half as much trash in the landfill. Even better, instead of putting the used half sheet in the trash, place it in the toe of your out-of-season shoes to reduce odor, keep out dust and spiders, and keep the shoe's shape until the next season.

I have even cut the sheets in 1/4" squares, and they will soften a whole dryer full of clothes. (11/21/2008)
And another use for your used sheet is to put it in your dish water when you soak dishes and it helps caked on food wipe out much easier from your dishes. This works especially well when you have a casserole dish with caked on food on it. (11/23/2008)
Try 1/2 cup of vinegar in your rinse cup, works better than fabric softener or sheets! (11/30/2008)
