Printer-friendly version


U.S. 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.

Use them all the time when playing  baseball and soccer. Use them when working outside. It  really  works. The insects just veer around  you.

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

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

2. Spread sheets around  foundation areas, or in trailers, or cars that are sitting and it  keeps mice from entering your  vehicle.

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

4.  It repels mosquitoes.  Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop when outdoors during  mosquito  season.

5. Eliminate static   electricity from your television (or computer)  screen.

6.  Since Bounce is  designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen  with a used sheet of Bounce to keep dust from  resettling..

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

8. To freshen the air in  your home - Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a drawer or hang  in the closet.

9. Put Bounce sheet in  vacuum cleaner.

10.  Prevent thread from  tangling. Run a threaded needle through a sheet of Bounce before  beginning to  sew.

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

12. To freshen the air in  your car - Place a sheet of Bounce under the front  seat.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

21. Put a Bounce sheet in  your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them. It will  keep them smelling  fresh.

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