    My mail carrier told me that 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. Use them all the time when playing baseball and soccer. I use it when I am working outside. It really works. The yellow jackets just veer around you.

    1. 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.

    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 you r 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! threade d 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 dus t 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.

    Anti-static sheets cause a lot of fuzz to build up on clothes dryer filters, resulting in overheating and fires. So it's important to clean off the filter for every load, if needed.

    one more place i like to use bounce is in my truck. in the summer i put a sheet under the seat to reduce odor from boots and residual stink bait crustations that happen to end up in there. in the winter a peice goes on the dash. when the defroster is on its a nice time delay air freshener. thanks for the other ideas.

    Sounds like a good deal. Almost like the uses of Coke or WD-40. LMAO

    Better go get your Bounce now before the price goes up. If they ever find out about all of this it will probably double. Good info Ace
