Some of these are old and some are new (to me) but all are good.

And all this time we've just been putting Bounce in the dryer :
It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.
It takes the odor out of books and photo albums that don't get
opened too often.
Repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of Bounce through a belt loop
when outdoors during mosquito season.
Eliminates static electricity from your television screen.
Since Bounce is designed to help eliminate static cling,
wipe your television screen with a used sheet of Bounce to
keep dust from resettling.
Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean with a sheet of
Freshen the air in your home. Place an individual sheet of
Bounce in a drawer or hang in the closet.
Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through
a sheet of Bounce before beginning to sew.
Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of Bounce
inside empty luggage before storing.
Freshen the air in your car. Place a sheet of Bounce under the
front seat.
Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan,
fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The
antistatic agent apparently weakens the bond between the food
and the pan while the fabric softening agents soften the baked-on
Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of Bounce at the
bottom of the wastebasket.
Collect cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of Bounce will
magnetically attract all the loose hairs.
Eliminate static electricity from venetian blinds. Wipe the
blinds with a sheet of Bounce to prevent dust from resettling.
Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of
Bounce will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.
Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of
Bounce at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.
Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of Bounce in your
shoes or sneakers overnight so they will smell better in the AM.
I also heard, that by putting one near or by where mice come in, will keep
them out, such as motor homes, and campers.
