I searched and didn't find a discussion on this. I am surprised there isn't one. I am not sure how I got the notion in my mind to look up uses for dryer sheets, I am sure it was something here on mylot, but well I can't be sure. In any case we have uses for vinegar, old towels, socks, stuff like that but what about dryer sheets? I found a nice list of things that dryer sheets can be used for. Have any of you tried this out before? Are you willing to now that I've found it for you? I have tried one which is to dust with it, it's supposed to keep dust from resettling and though it's only been a few days, it seems to be working, I'll have to say for sure in a week or two. http://www.doityourself.com/stry/dryersheets Please share all your tips and tricks for anything! I'm mentally recording them for when we get our own place.

I have not tried this yet, but I have been looking for something to wipe the monitor screen with, that does not leave marks, so I'll give that a go!

If it's one of the newer monitor's or t.v's I'd be careful with it. I'd be afraid that the dryer sheet is a little too abrasive. I saw that tip but don't think I'll try it on our monitor or t.v. We have one of the newer t.v.'s that we can't even use windex or amonia on to clean.

Thanks, a good point. The TV might be fine, as it is a rear projection, having a separate screen across the front.

I don't use dryer sheets often because I don't like the scent and I don't always find unscented ones. I have use aluminum foil before though and it works fairly well.
