Bounce and BlogHer Review + $50 Visa Gift Card {GIVEAWAY}


I got the fun pleasure of reviewing the new Bounce Dryer Bar! This is a perfect invention for someone like me since I happen to be quite forgetful...and hate doing laundry.

I was sent the dye and perfume free version since I have little booties that I'm washing clothes for. The awesome thing about this bar is, you stick it and forget it! Since my last, oh, 300 loads of laundry haven't had the fabric softener sheet added because I CAN'T REMEMBER, this is super handy. With the bar, it's automatic!
This is the Bounce Dryer Bar stuck to the inside of my dryer. I will admit, it does look kinda nasty. This was after I did a few loads of laundry and a little lint and hair got stuck to it. Not a big deal, though.
How often do you stick your head in the dryer to take pictures?
My very first load with the Bounce Dryer Bar was our sheets and towels. We use the T-shirt sheets and usually, when I get them out of the dryer, I almost get electrocuted. I have to literally peel them apart as sparks fly out. Now, you would think I would remember the dryer sheets, especially with this kind of load, but I don't. The Bounce Dryer Bar made it way too easy!

A load with hubs undershirts in it was noticeably softer. And? My hair didn't stand on end when I pulled on my shirt. You'd think remembering the dryer sheets would be more important to me simply for that benefit! Haha. I am so happy with this simple Bounce Dryer Bar!

Basically, you are getting the exact same benefits as the Bounce fabric softener sheets, but with months of automatic freshness, softness and static-control. It is seriously easy peasy. When it is almost empty, you will no longer be able to read the word "Bounce" on the bar, then it will show the word "replace." Simply put a new bar right into the holder already stuck in the dryer. Have a load that you don't want to have softener in? The bar releases easily from the holder.

The Bounce Bar comes in 2, 3, 4 or 6 month sizes and in Fresh Linen, Free and Outdoor Fresh scents. Trust me on this one, you are going to love it.
You can learn more about them on Bounce's Facebook page.

  18. Ok so we've been using the bar since we got married. It's pretty great! I think we've only used 2 or 3 since we do less laundry without kiddos.

    The part I hate the worst is definitely folding. I wouldn't even mind putting it away if it was already folded or on a hanger.

    And remembering to take it out of the dryer before it becomes hopelessly wrinkled from sitting in there!

  19. I hate putting clothes away too. It's the worst!

  41. I hate all there is about doing laundry. The worst is putting the clothes away. I could live out of a laundry basket or dryer (prefer the dryer so I can turn it on to fluff out the wrinkles). On a side note: I do LOVE the Bounce Bar. I have been using it for several months now, best thing ever!
