Who would have ever thought one little sheet could do so much? With Bounce dryer sheets, your clothes will be so soft you may find others drawn toward you. But not because of static–cling, we’ve got that under control. You’ll also find your clothes with less lint and hair sticking around. This simple little sheet might just change the way you feel about laundry–and the way your laundry feels.

How does Bounce soften?
During the tumbling of the dryer, fabric-care agents are transferred from the Bounce dryer sheet to the surface of fabrics. These fabric-care agents have a lubricating effect on the fabric, causing fibers to feel smooth.
How does Bounce control static?
If your socks cling to each other and snap at you when you try to pull them apart, that’s static cling. Static is known to build up in the dryer when fabric fibers, especially synthetics, rub together, generating friction. As a result of the friction between fibers, electrons are transferred across surfaces resulting in a static charge and that annoying high-pitched sound when you touch them.
Bounce works in the dryer, where static happens. Softening ingredients are transferred from the Bounce dryer sheet to the surface of fabrics via heat and physical contact during the tumbling of the dryer. Lubricating fiber surfaces with Bounce fabric softener helps prevent the friction that leads to static charge.
Can I reuse my Bounce sheet?
Why would you? In the U.S., the average cost of our dryer sheets is just pennies per sheet, so you can afford to use a new one every time. Plus, you’ll get better softening and static control when using a new sheet in every dryer load, especially since most of the fabric conditioner is used up in one use. A reused sheet will not provide nearly the same great benefit as a new one.
How do I use Bounce with small loads, such as one blouse?
Bounce was developed to use in a full load of damp fabrics. Tossing a Bounce sheet in the dryer with only one wet or dry garment can lead to staining. If you’ve washed your blouse and want to dry it with a Bounce sheet, we suggest adding a damp bath towel to the load.
How do fabric-conditioner stains occur?
Too heavy concentration of fabric conditioner—single items or small loads need help distributing the fabric conditioner. Try adding a damp bath towel or other heavyweight fabric to help even it out.
Fabrics that attract fabric conditioner, like certain polyesters, are prone to spotting. Check your garment-care tag; it might recommend "no fabric softener." If you have fabric-conditioner spotting on a garment, it might be prone to spotting.
Dry loads: Bounce was designed to be used with damp fabrics. Fabric-conditioner stains are usually temporary. To remove them, rub wet fabric/stained area with a bar of soap, then rewash the garment in warm water.
