How many of these did you know about?

I was going to post up  a normal bit of stuff, but couldn't resist this

You may have had this before bet well worth another read            

Bounce This  Along
    The  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.  I use it when  I
   am 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.
           23. Put a sheet of  Bounce in your suitcase when traveling, it will help  keep mites or any other critters out of it.   While you are at it, travel with several Bounce  sheets and run them up and down your bed linen  before getting into bed, it will cause all the  critters already in your bed to run.  Keep a  sheet in your suitcase even after you have unpacked  to protect your suitcases from bugs nesting in  it.

Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby
