Dryer sheets can also be used in a storage unit to help keep your belongings smelling fresh and to repel insects.

Here are some tips for using dryer sheets in a storage unit:

  1. Place dryer sheets in containers: To keep the scent of the dryer sheets contained, place them in a small container with a lid, such as a plastic bin or a baggie. You can then place these containers throughout your storage unit to help keep your belongings smelling fresh.
  2. Use dryer sheets to repel insects: Some people use dryer sheets to repel insects such as mice, moths, and spiders. Place dryer sheets in areas where these pests are likely to enter, such as around doors and windows.
  3. Use caution with delicate fabrics: While dryer sheets can help keep fabrics smelling fresh, they can also leave behind a residue that can damage delicate fabrics such as silk and wool. If you’re storing delicate fabrics, it’s best to avoid using dryer sheets.
  4. Avoid overuse: While dryer sheets can be effective at keeping your storage unit smelling fresh, it’s important not to overuse them. Too many dryer sheets can leave a strong scent that may be overwhelming and potentially harmful to your belongings.
  5. Replace regularly: Dryer sheets lose their effectiveness over time, so it’s important to replace them regularly, especially if you’re using them to repel insects.
