    I just got one of those chain email with old home remedies. Well one made me think of those putting bug spray in their OOT bags. It says, "No More Mosquitoes: Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away" I thought it might be cute to put a dryer sheet in a baggie and write a little note with that message on it, plus it would be less expensive than buying bug spray for everyone!

            I have heard of it also... never tried it. However, I just learned that citranella candles attract bugs and are meant to be placed away from you. OOPS! I have always put them on the table...

                To answer the question - a dryer sheet is a fabric softener sheet. Like Bounce..

                Does anyone know if this works??
                I'm going to the Bahamas in 2 weeks - I'm going to try it and re-post.. I would love to smell like dryer sheets and not Off!!

                  oh sorry I should have said fabric softener sheet Can't wait to see if it works, since there is ice and snow all over up here I can't test it out.
