Dryer sheets: They do so much more than just stop static cling and soften tees. Apparently, the laundry accessory makes a great beauty bag addition (who knew?), and to prove that point, we've rounded up some of our best at-home hacks you can do with a single sheet.
With summer just around the corner, temps are rising, humidity is thicker than ever, and mosquitoes are running rampant. Luckily, we've got a trick to ward off the incessant insects — and it's bug-repellant-free. Using a single dryer sheet, rub the woven cloth all over your body — from head to toe — and your clothes (yes, over your jeans and T-shirt). The sheet's scent will ward off pesky mosquitoes and gnats, leaving you itch-free all summer. Pro tip: Keep one or two fresh sheets stashed in your back pocket for quick coverage in a pinch.

If you've got a penchant for frizz the second you step outside, commit this next hack to memory. Combat humidity and strand static by literally skimming the sheet across hair — from root to end. The positively charged ingredients in the cloth bond to the negatively charged surface of your hair, neutralizing the charge, leaving you with a soft, silky finish.
