Sure, but my ability to smell is poor so I don't know if they smell.

for winter storage, yes. There's a wive's tale that they help repel mice, so every little bit helps.

Never I hate the smell of them. I have used Juniper bush for that purpose. It lasts and lasts.

No, I use Fabreeze on the carpets and headliner. Used clothes dryer sheets are more effective at cleaning out the lint in your dryer's lint trap.

Hi Wizzo. No I haven't used "clothes dryer sheets" as an air freshener. I wondered if there was harm to people in doing that and looked at a box I have. It says:

"To add a fresh scent anytime, anywhere! Try them in dresser drawers, your car, in the bottom of the garbage can, gym bags or luggage."

I never noticed that before - thanks :-). MGY
