Default Dryer sheets on baseboards?

Have you guys ever tried this? I've been doing it lately just because every room in my house has white baseboards. They smell great, but it not only cleans the dust off the baseboards, but the wax-like substance in the sheet actually protects the baseboards from dust as well. It shields it.

Default Tried it

We have been putting them in random places around the house to combat the smell of our two big dogs.

So far, seems to be helping quite a bit!

Nah, I don't. That sounds too expensive to use them for that. Maybe I'm just a cheap-o.

It also works for obstinate water stains on your glass shower door.
