You learn something new every day...

So what useless/random fact have you learned today?

I found out that in the US...a beer commercial can't show the person actually drinking the beer.

True...it wasn't that long ago that beer/alcohol ads were banned from TV but returned with a number of restrictions...similarly, cigarette ads...in the "old days" a person could be seen holding his cigarette but not smoking it...I don't watch a lot of TV but I think smoke ads remain banned...

I have learned these tips for other uses for Bounce sheets:

And all this time you've just been putting Bounce in the dryer!

It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.

It also repels mice..spread them around foundation areas, or
in trailers or cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering
your vehicle.

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 (or computer) 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 Bounce.

Freshen the air in your home. Place an individual sheet of Bounce in a
drawer or hang in the closet.

Put Bounce sheet in vacuum cleaner.

Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through 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 anti-static agent
apparently weakens the bond between the food.

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.

Golfers put a Bounce sheet in their back pocket to keep the bees away.

Put a Bounce sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and
storing them. Keeps them smelling fresh.
