Frugal Solution

In light of Frugal Girl's ongoing quest to be as frugal as possible, I have discovered something for myself that will save me more money. I have a few Sharper Image air purifiers at home that I usually clean once a week. It would normally cost me several Bounty Towels to wipe the dust out of the air purifiers. I have tried something else yesterday that would do the job without costing me any paper towels. Every time I finish drying my clothes I would have the anti-static sheets lying around, so I took the used anti-static sheets and used them to clean the air purifiers. The sheets seemed to do a pretty good job surprisingly. I feel so proud.. hahaha... I have reused garbage and turn it into something useful AND saved money. Saving paper towels = saving money. I think I deserved a Frugal Star from Frugal Girl. :-)

Check out consumer reports review of these air purifiers, they are doing more harm than good!

you're wasting more on electricity running the purifiers than you're saving by recycling anti-static sheets... dontcha think?

Sharper Imagine claims "low energy" on the units. I have it on 24/7 anyways.

Used dryer sheets are also great for cleaning off your TV screen. Make sure it's off first.
