Creative Ways to Use Bounce

I’m no domestic goddess, but to me there’s nothing like the lightly perfumed smell of laundry straight from the dryer. So, you can imagine the joy I felt when I learned that the folks at Bounce (you know the fabric softener) put together a website where people can post their tips on the many ways to use Bounce dryer sheets. The website, titled Bounce Fresh Ideas website features tips on using the dryer sheets to catch house flys, deodorize garbage cans, and even, hmmm, as a laxative. My favorite tip involved using the sheet as an aphrodisiac—which I suppose is a cheap alternative to champagne and oysters.

    Okay, even I was surprised at the number of ideas I picked up from this (in particular putting it in the gym bag and trash can). But has anyone ever tried keeping away bugs with it?
