Bounce Dryer Bar Review and $50.00 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Bounce. All opinions are 100% mine.

Laundry, laundry, laundry – does it ever end? Well, with three kids under the age of four, the answer is……….no. I was recently asked if I would like to try out the new Bounce Dryer Bar and I jumped at the opportunity. Have you heard of this product? Well, it’s the newest in the line of products from Bounce and it is fabulous! It has all the benefits of dryer sheets, but brings it to you in a more convenient form. I know I have reviewed products here and there on the blog, but trust me when I tell you that I would not recommend a product unless I truly thought it was great!

The Bounce Dryer Bar was so simple to install that I actually installed it in the dark. I’m not kidding. Our laundry is in the basement (otherwise known as the dungeon) and when I went down there to start using this product the light was burned out. I didn’t realize my husband had installed a light elsewhere, but that’s beside the point. The point is that this product could not be any easier to use. If I can easily install it in the dark, you know that you will have no problem at all installing it in the light!

Here’s how the Bounce Dryer Bar works……… You remove the bar from the packaging and peel off the paper on the back side of the bar to reveal the sticky adhesive. You open your dryer and place the bar (sticky side down) on the side wall of the dryer. All you have to do is hold it down for 15 seconds and you are good to go.

How many times have you forgotten to put a dryer sheet in with a load of laundry? Or have you ever been doing laundry and ran out of dryer sheets? Well, that can be a total bummer and with the new Bounce Dryer Bar you do not even have to think about it. You just toss in your laundry and forget about it. You end up with months of great smelling laundry as well as softness and static control.

Granted, a dryer sheet may not seem like a very big deal, but in the life of this busy mom, it’s just one less thing to have to worry about. I think we all want to find ways to make our lives a little bit easier and the new Bounce Dryer Bar does just that! The bar lasts for three months and after it runs out, you can simply buy a refill pack. The holder stays in the dryer and you just replace the bar. So you only have to think about it four times a year, instead of thinking about dryer sheets for every load of laundry.

The Bounce Dryer Bar comes in the scented and unscented varieties depending on your taste. I tried out the scented version and it smells great! I love the way fresh laundry smells and this has the perfect scent. Some people are very sensitive to scented products, so in that case I would recommend going with the unscented bar.

The bottom line is that the Bounce Dryer Bar is great. Like I said before, it’s all the benefits of a dryer sheet, but it a more convenient form……….now that makes life easier and I’m all about that!

  5. I do enjoy the smell of freshly cleaned laundry! And I don’t ever buy dryer sheets, however I do like having static-free laundry!

  6. I didn’t realize it came in an unscented bar. That one I would love to try!

  7. They have an unscented one? That would be wonderful. My husband has a lot of trouble with scents and etc. being in his clothes so this would def help a lot!!

  12. Ive been wanting to try the bar since it came out. I have friends who swear by it. Give me that nudge!

  13. I bought one, installed it, and then my ancient dryer broke and I had to get a new one! Haven’t replaced the bar yet though! I’d love to win one! 🙂

  14. well, since i ran out of dryer sheets yesterday {seriously} this would make my life easier!

  15. I would love the fresh scent and not having to remember a dryer sheet 🙂

  16. I am ALWAYS forgetting to put in a dryer sheet. Lately, with the drier weather, it’s led to our clothes being SUPER static-y. I would love this!

  17. It would be nice to not have to worry about the dryer sheet or my clothes smelling not fresh.

  18. I have yet to try this, but with two kids under 3, I’ll try anything to make my life more simple!

  24. This product is one of my fav’s for laundry. I have used it and will continue to do so! I used to Hate the sheets with a passion. They would always end up all over my house, in the corners of the laundry room, and even a few times found in pant legs etc. while out in public! I fully embrace the dryer bar revolution!

  25. this is so cool! I haven’t heard of it! I am always forgetting the dryer sheets, so this would definitely save me time. Plus I love the smell of clean laundry!

  26. Hi.

    Very interesting. I am from Germany and new (relatively) to the US. Of course we have dryers in Germany too, but:

    What the heck is a dryer sheet?

    I juft put my laundry in the dryer (if I can’t let it dry outside) – and that’s it. And I have done so for 13 years now – since I bought the first fabric diapers for my oldest daughter – the only one who ever wore fabric diapers – sorry, but with 4 kids, I don’ t want to do any more laundry than absolutely necessary (= 12 times per week or so).

    I can’t belive how lovely your laundry room looks – I think I have to upgrade mine now, too 😉

    Tina – I have to do some research about dryer sheets now *g*

  27. The Bounce Dryer Bar would help make laundry soft without me having to remember to put in a dryer sheet or fabric softner. I’m all for making laundry easier! Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. A dryer bar would mean I am not picking up dryer sheets from all over the house, but we are still getting the benefit of dryer sheets.

  29. This would be awesome! I just had a baby girl on Sunday and have 2 other toddlers, so anything to make my life easier is something that I want!

  30. it would make my life easier because i wouldn’t have to worry whether i put a dryer sheet in and/or keep them out on the dryer to make sure i remember

    thanks also for a chance to win!

  31. I wouldn’t need to use fabric softener!

    sarah.currence at gmail

  32. I always forget a dryer sheet so I would certainly use it!

  33. That’s one less thing to worry about.. It’s in the dryer for months. boom! [email protected]

  34. I would love a chance to try those – I did try the scented one when it first came out and my baby couldn’t take the scent. But if they now have the unscented ones, I could start having my 4 year old help with laundry more.

  35. What a great new product! Count me in! Thank You, Beth N. ([email protected])

  36. Constantly remembering to buy new dryer sheets is a pain. This would be so much better.

  37. I love the idea of not having to remember to to use a sheet for every load. I imagine that another advantage to using the dryer bar is that you have less waste: the bar is used up and you just need to buy refills. And no used dryer sheets to clean up!

  38. With a hundred other things always on the go, never enough hours in the day to do it all, one less thing to remember would make my life easier, plus laundry is my least favored chore, so anything that makes it easier is an A+ in my books!

  39. The Bounce Dryer Bar would definitely make my life easier cos I (or my hubby if he helps out) will never forget that fabric softener again! 🙂

  86. It would make things easier for me because I always forget to put that dryer sheet in dryer

  87. I like having my clothes be static-free, but I hate how the dryer sheets get caught in the clothing or end up on the laundry room floor. The dryer bar looks so much more convenient.

  88. make life a bit easier to not have to fill another cap of fabric softener. The liquid softener gums up the dispenser and would love a simpler solution.
    karenmed409 at comcast dot net

  89. I wouldn’t have to deal with static….yippee

  90. I wouldn’t have to constantly remind myself or the girls to put one in the dryer
    tbarrettno1 at gmail dot com

  91. I’m ready to give the bar a spin because I hate dryer sheets – they always end up on the floor, I’ve slipped on them more than once (we have tile floors). One day I just know I’m going to fall and really hurt myself! I’ll sometimes have to spend a few minutes either locating the spent dryer sheet or putting in a new one, it would be nice to have a bar that lasts months!

  92. I wouldn’t have to buy fabric softener for one! I only buy it for the smell anyway!

  93. The Bounce bar would make my life easier by taking away another item on my to-do list.

  96. For sure the Bounce Dryer Bar would make my life easier, I don’t have to worry if I have put the dryer sheet in or not if I have the dryer bar installed!
