4th of July DOG

So yesterday was the 4th of July and fireworks are still being shot off everywhere in the celebrations. Do you have a DOG? If so, how does your DOG react to the fireworks? Does your DOG feel scared and shake? Unfortunately, for our four-legged and two-legged animal friends, and all of the animalitos, it can be freaky scary. Please think of them on this day, and the days to come.

A friend told me that her mother’s DOG used to get super frightened by the fireworks (and thunder). Then, she read something and decided to try it. She took a dryer sheet (Bounce, etc) and rubbed it all over her DOG, and the dog was calm for the rest of the night! The animals feel the static electricity from the earth and, every time a firecracker goes off, they feel like they are being shocked. She said her mom tried using a thunder jacket, but her DOG was still petrified. On the other hand, the dryer sheet worked! Also, get some Bach Rescue Remedy for Animals. It’s been very effective in many cases!

Got Yellow Jackets? Get Bounce!

Here are some creative uses for Bounce dryer sheets. What’s your opinion?

Apparently, Bounce is not just a softener for your clothes. The US Postal Service sent out a message to all letter carriers to put a sheet of Bounce in their uniform pockets to keep yellow jackets away.  The yellow jackets just veer around you. It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them.  It also repels mice.  Spread them around foundation areas, or in trailer, cars that are sitting. 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.  Wipe your television (or computer) 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 in vacuum cleaner. Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through 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. 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 mini-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. 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.
