Fabric softener sheets are claimed to clean baked on foods from cooking pots and pans. Place a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight. Next morning sponge it clean. The antistatic agent apparently weakens the bond between the stuck on food between the pot or pans surface. The fabric softening agents helps to soften the baked on food.

Purex has made a product that is laundry detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheet all in one. Drop one in the washer and the detergent is released, put it in the dryer and the clothes come out soft and static-free. No more remembering to add fabric softener and the cost is comparable to buying detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets. Less carbon footprint since you can buy refills as well. Love them!
They come in various fragrances as well. I don't know if they make a fragrance-free type or not.
Save money on dryer sheets by getting a five gallon bucket and pouring fabric softener in the bucket. Then fill the container the fabric softener came out of with water and pour it into the bucket too. Fill again with water and pour into bucket. Then get a few sponges and put in the bucket. When you need a dryer sheet take a sponge out and use it.
Put two used dryer fabric softener sheets in one load of laundry, it works as well as one new sheet. A box of fabric softener sheets will last twice as long.
I keep track by keeping the used sheet on top of the dryer by itself until I do another load of laundry...the third load of laundry always gets the two used sheets. After using the two dryer sheets together, I use them as an easy, static free way to clean the dryer vent and then toss.
