    Bounce dryer BAR - thumbs UP

    My husband spotted it in the store and we had to try it.

    Bound dryer bar. You stick the plastic holder to the inside wall of your dryer and snap in the refillable Bounce Bar.

    I've been using the same bar for several months now and it's still a long way off from needing to be replaced.

    I like the idea of not forgetting to put a dryer sheet in, and not finding dryer sheets in my clothing or bed sheets when I'm done, and of course I'm not filling a land-fill with dozens of sheets a week (I've always used two sheets for each load - one was never enough).

    Overall ... I believe it leaves more of a scent on my laundry as well. I'm scent sensitive, but this is not an overwhelming or unpleasant scent. If you are very scent sensitive (allergies?) check to see if they have it in unscented.

    I also think that it is doing a better job of controlling static ESPECIALLY for that load of clothes that you 'forgot' and ran through the dryer a second time to remove the wrinkles - no problems there at all (and I frequently forget a load in the dryer!).

    It has lasted a long time, I'm definitely going to see a cost improvement - albeit minor (every penny counts right?).

    I have noticed that the bar will attract the lint from the clothes and will appear discolored from it, this has not proved to be a problem with the performance.

    All in all ... I don't think I'll ever buy the sheets again!!! I'm SOLD.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    You don't have the option to not use it on certain loads though. I never use softener on towels because it makes them water repellent instead of absorbent.

    We have been using the dryer bar for months now. You can snap it out for loads you do not want to use it for, such as when pre-washing new fabric for quilting, and then snap it back in for when you do.

    this was my first thought, as well. when i get a new box of softener sheets, i cut them all in half. 1/2 sheet is plenty for most loads. once in a while, I'll use 2 halves.

    I love it... Tried it when they first came out.. One bar last a long time and YES they are removable and can be snapped in again... I do not remove it when drying towels - no difference in my fluffy soft towels not adsorbing water .... My towels are super thick spa extra large towels... The bar is the best IMHO ...


    TWO thumbs up here !!

    They are great!!! I've been using these for almost a year and will never go back to the sheets.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    I've been trying it since March, still tons of it left.
    I find if I have a lot of polys I need to add a dry sheet to keep from getting the sucks when wearing the items
    And it left chalky marks on my husbands black dockers, which wiped off with a hot washcloth.
    I didn't realize they snapped out, brilliant.

    Haven't tried one yet. Have a ton of sheets to use up first.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    I only use the sheets in the winter to help with static cling.
