Question Putting a dryer sheet over the opening of a fish tank

I keep my 2 gallon betta fish tank clean, filter for a little every other day and partial water changes each week, but it still gives off a little smell. I live in a small dorm room and it gives the place a slight odor. Can I put a dryer sheet over the opening in the top to absorb the smell? I would assume oxygen still passes through the sheet.
Any thoughts?

I personally would not risk it, even with it not being in the water, if it was to fall in the chemicals in the dryer sheet could be very harmful to your fish. I also would be concerned that it might release chemicals over the water which would dissolve in the water.

I wouldn't take a chance with that either. I'm wondering why you have an odor tho?? Do you have any dead plants or a dead snail in there?

Welcome to TFK
Me too. There should be no odor. I keep a 75g tank in my dinning/living room for years and it never had any odor.
