Another free item I received after having the boys was my Bounce Dryer Bar from Viewpoints.com. I admit to being unsure about using it. Someone I know had a bad experience with the bar not sticking to the side of her dryer and it banged about inside during drying. I decided I could live with that. Then I smelled the package... Whoo! It was strong. I am sensitive to smells and typically avoid even walking down the detergent aisle at the grocery. Did I really want to wear that smell? I was also hesitant to dry Brendon and Bryce's clothing with such a strong scent.
All of those hesitations are long gone. I really like the bar. It is still stuck to the side of our dryer. And, while the bar itself has a strong smell, our clothing does not. The clothes come out with a faint scent that is just right. Our air has been cold and dry, yet there hasn't been any static on our clothes.
I haven't kept track of the number of loads of clothing we have dried, but it has been in use for 6 weeks and we wash at the minimum 3 loads of laundry a week, but we have done extra now that we have urpy babies that only have a few outfits that fit. So I anticipate that we've washed 25 loads of clothes and there is still some bar left. I'm not sure the cost of the Bounce Dryer bars, but I hope they are a good price. It is wonderful not to have dryer sheets floating all over the house, or worse finding them balled up in my pants mid-day.
