Review: Bounce Dryer Bar and Chance to Win $50 Visa Card

I’m not a fan of dryer sheets. That’s a pretty big statement considering I decided to sign up to do a review for the new Bounce Dryer Bar.

But, the bar is not a sheet.

A pile of laundry at Coal Creek Farm is an everyday sight.

I’ve been using the Bounce Dryer Bar for about a week now and I like it a lot. I don’t have to remember to stick anything in the dryer, I don’t have to worry about finding the sheet sticking out of my pant leg as I’m walking around in public and I have one less product taking up space on my laundry shelf. The Bounce Dryer Bar sticks to the inside of the dryer and does its job without me having to do anything. I simply stuck it to the inside of my dryer drum and walked away. That’s it. It’s that simple and it lasts for about three months. THREE MONTHS! Do you know how many dryer sheets I would use in three months? We currently have one dog and about six cats on the farm, we battle pet hair every day. One cat sneaks inside and sleeps on the first pile of clothes she can find, which is usually located in my daughter’s room. The Bounce Dryer Bar (which controls static) also helps repel hair. So, I’m no longer getting an electrical shock from my towels and the pet hair is left in the vent trap instead of on me and my clothes. I’m in love with this handy little thing. Talk about convenience. The Bounce Dryer Bar also has a replacement indicator. What? Yes. When the time comes you will see “REPLACE” on the surface of the bar. It easily snaps out-of-place and a new bar can be inserted into the same holder. I love that it tells me when it’s done. For more information about The Bounce Dryer Bar check out Bounce’s Facebook page.
