I have not had a chance to test all of these unusal use's for Bounce.  I have done some research on this list of uses an most of the above uses work.  If you have tried some of these use's and find that they do not work feel free to send me a message via my guest book. 

Maybe you can have fun with Bounce and come up with your on experiments to see what you can use Bounce for. It's a fabric softener is reduces static and it smells good.

Ant Repellant

This is not using bounce sheets but dishwashing liquid.  I got this one from my granddaughter Sydney she tried it and it works.

Ant repellant

Mix in 1-2 ratio

1/3 liquid dish soap

2/3 water

Mix together the soap and water pour into a spray bottle. When you see a pile of ants spray on them or on the spot that they have gravitated to they will look smell the spot and head in the opposite direction.

My granddaughter Sydney found this somewhere on the internet tried it and it works. I found this worth reposting it.
