File this under "Things I Never Knew"! People are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxes, but it's for a very good reason. It helps out the men and women delivering the mail!
A postal worker took to Reddit to let us in on the truth behind the dryer sheets! (See the reason why below)
Supposedly the dryer sheets keep wasps away!
According to the Reddit post by the postal worker:
I can’t tell you how many times where I’ve opened up a box to see a little nest with three-to-five Yellowjackets just chillin. If I’m really unlucky, they will have made their nest at the very back of the box so I wind up sticking my hand in not knowing they are there. Last year alone I was stung 10 times on 10 separate occasions. So please, if you one day randomly see a dryer sheet at the back of your mailbox, just know that your carrier more than likely put it there to deter these Satanic creatures from building their home in it.
So if you wanna look out for your delivery person, put a dryer sheet in the back of your mailbox!
