$50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway & Bounce Dryer Bar Review!



I’m a busy Mom and I work a full time job.  Sometimes it doesn’t seem like there are enough hours in the day to get everything done around the house.  In our home I’m the person in charge of the laundry….my husband claims he doesn’t do it right.  Uh huh…sure!!!
I’m always looking for ways to save time and money.  Recently I was asked to try a Bounce Dryer Bar.  I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical.  I’ve always used dryer sheets and wasn’t so sure I wanted to change. In a few easy steps I applied the Bounce Dryer Bar inside my dryer and voila!
I still get the freshness, softness, and static control I want from a dryer sheet in the convenience of a Bounce Dryer bar.  It provides three months of freshness and static control.  You just stick it in and forget it!  I love this because sometimes I forget to pull a dryer sheet when I’m in a hurry and don’t realize until I pull the laundry out.  Now I don’t even have to think about it because it’s already inside the dryer.

The Bounce Dryer Bar is also saving me money because over three months I would have spent a lot more on dryer sheets.  The Bounce Dryer Bar is perfect for our family because it saves me time, money, and I still have fresh smelling laundry.

Let’s face it, laundry is a chore.  Nobody likes it, but it’s something that HAS to get done.  So why not save yourself a little time and money with the Bounce Dryer Bar?  I promise it works just as well as those sheets and it will save you a step in your laundry routine.  The less to remember the better in my book!  So bring on the laundry……I’ve got it covered!

For more information about the Bounce Dryer Bar and to see some cool videos, visit the Bounce Facebook page.

You can win a free Bounce Dryer Bar and a $50 Visa Gift Card from BlogHer and Bounce.

Question... I have a few things that I don't like to dry with fabric softener - is this easy to remove and replace?

Tiffany Norris said...

Sounds good to me! Jason sometimes helps, but I have to let go of my OCD tendencies and just let him do it his way. ha

{K} said...

Sounds like a great product! No one helps me with the laundry but I'm okay with that because I have to do the laundry my way. :)

I do most of the laundry, but my mom is so kind to help out when she is over watching Cohen! Brandon also folds sometimes...but mostly it is just me! I've seen these bars but I haven't tried them yet!

I do the main bulk of our laundry, but my hubby does help with a load or two a week!

Laura said...

My husband helps with the laundry...sometimes. ;)

April Klingler said...

My amazing hubby usually helps me put laundry away (probably because he's sick of seeing the pile stacked in our bedroom for a few days!) :-)

Rebecca Shockley said...

My kids help with the laundry especially if they want something clean to wear to school, well I tell them that(shhh)lol.

I wasn't a big fan of the bounce bar...I still have a mark in the dryer from where it was. Boo!!! I do however love the concept of it! HAHAHA

AubreyLaine said...

If I asked for help, I am sure my husband would help. But it's my job, so I do it... I wouldn't like to mow the lawn or do some of the things he does, so I stick with what I know!

Angela said...

I have always done most of the laundry, but my teenage daughter has recently started helping fold some of the clothes. What an amazing help when we're doing laundry for a family of 6!!!

This sounds like a great product, so thanks for the review. It would be so convenient to just put this in the dryer and forget about it. I luckily do get help with the laundry from my hubby.

Creativeschmidt said...

Every once in a while, my hubby will throw a load in the wash...but I'm the laundry queen around here. Unfortunately. :)

My husband usually starts the laundry but I am in charge of putting it in the dryer, folding it, and putting it away. I would love to have one of those bars because I never remember to put in dryer sheets and that is no good in the winter!!

katychick said...

i do all the laundry- my kids -ages 2 and 3 - hand me the clean clothes out of the basket and i fold it- so -ok- i give them some credit

I wish I had someone to help me with the laundry, single mom, just me and the princess, sometimes she folds the washcloths as her chore, but I do most. I'm crossing my fingers on this one!!

Luckily Big Man helps me with the laundry though I am stuck with folding all of it :)

Valerie C said...

My hubs does laundry occassionally. I don't mind him helping, except for the folding task. He "rolls" the clothes, rather than folding. This dryer bar looks awesome! I'll have to try it out.

Linds said...

Drew helps out with laundry sometimes, but I am the main laundry doer in the house. I don't mind it though, since I tend to have more time to do laundry since I am a SAHM.

My husband, bless his little heart, does most of our laundry around here. I, however, do that of our 2 year old son. Makes me feel like a good mom when I do. :)

YAY!! What a fun giveaway - my hubs can be counted on for an assist with the laundry maybe once a month. Usually its just me and the laundry:)

Kindra said...

bukaeyes said...

I do atleast 1 load of laundry per day! I get a little help here and there- sometimes my one year old likes to help fold clothes and that usually doesn't go over too well!

Pamela Laurie said...

I have been using the Bounce Bar for a few months and I LOVE it! It works well and smells great. I love not having to remember to add a fabric sheet. Also not having to remind my children if they have added one.

Melissa said...

That is a tricky question. Does anyone HELP me with the laundry? No. Does anyone "help" me with the laundry? Uh, supposedly. My husband likes to say he helps, but really he just gets in my way and messes up my "system". ;-)

Amyb99 said...

I sometimes have help from my 2 boys (ages 5 & 9) in various capacities. My husband used to help, but I'm kind of glad he doesn't now. Too many shrunken clothes!!

Gloria Attar RN BSN said...

My daughter wishes I'd help her! I turned over all the laundry duties, for the two of us, to her after I kept finding clean clothes in the laundry basket because she didn't want to put them away or hang them up. Now she looks for cool new products to make her life easier! Even our new washing machine... she picked it out for the features she wanted! Seriously, you should have seen her dealing with the salesperson! (She's 13, by the way.)
