3. Hack Of The Week: Dryer sheets go way beyond the dryer. Put a dryer sheet in an old book so they don’t smell like old books, tuck a dryer sheet in between folded bedding, clean water spots off of chrome and polish stainless steel, put a used dryer sheet in the bottom of a planter to keep soil from draining out of the pot.
