Where to Buy
 

Bounce Original Dryer Sheets hold their own in head-to-head testing against other dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners, even softening clothes better than some liquids. Bounce Original Dryer Sheets are inexpensive compared to liquids, and unlike many competing brands, are shown to control static exceptionally well. Consumers report many additional uses for Bounce Original Dryer Sheets, which come in four scents plus an unscented version for sensitive skin. The unscented version contains no added dyes or perfumes, but otherwise contains the same ingredients as the scented products. Dryer sheets can also be used for several laundry-free tasks from removing pet hair from furniture to freshening a vehicle or garbage can. Still, experts say liquid fabric softeners provide the most softness, such as Gain Ultra Liquid Fabric Softener (*Est. $9 for 44 oz.).

The best head-to-head testing of Bounce Original Dryer Sheets is conducted by ConsumerReports.org, which pits them against seven different dryer sheet brands and 12 fabric softeners, in addition to a dryer ball and reusable dryer cloth. More than 50 consumer opinions are available through video reviews found on ExpoTV.com and written reviews found on Viewpoints.com.
