20 Uses For Bounce Dryer Sheets
Dryer sheets were invented by a man named Conrad J Gaiser in the 1960’s who came up with the idea when his wife was tired of having to run downstairs to catch their final rinse cycle in the basement of their four story duplex. Shortly after he invented it he sold it to Proctor & Gamble who sold it as Bounce Dryer Sheets.
A lot has changed since the 1960’s invention from the different scents to how they are marketed. This has also given creative people a chance to come up with amazing uses for them over the years.
