    Default Keep or toss: dryer sheets

    Do you keep them or toss them? I sometimes cut them in half and sometimes forget. I primarily toss them.

    New or used?

    I toss used ones and use new ones (after they cut in half).

    Don't use them at all. They're a waste of money imho.

    I cut them in thirds. Use for 1 load of laundry. Then normally toss them. I have also been known to stuff 1 into a boot or shoe when storing to freshen them a bit. Also a new one makes a great static cling remover for skirts. Just rub it on the pantyhose or underside of a skirt.

    I use them for 2 loads of laundry before throwing them out. I also like them for static control.

    Toss those. I used to save them when I was younger and made potpurri sachets for my parents.

    I cut them in half, then toss them after one use. They're pretty useless, IMO, after they've been through the dryer once.

    Reuse either in the dryer again or in clothes baskets and drawers.
    I had saved a huge pile in empty tissue boxes thinking I'd use them to stuff a pillow or something, but finally tossed them.
