Bounce Dryer Bar Review + Giveaway.

08 November 2011

Juggling a new baby is hard. When she’s awake during the day, she is pretty much in my arms. I am feeding her, or rocking her to sleep, or changing her, or bathing her, or dressing her, or soothing her… well, you get the idea. So the moment those eyelids droop, I am already planning in my head what I am going to get done in the time she is asleep.

I can empty the dishwasher. Throw a load of laundry in. Brush Dexter, the hairiest cat in the universe. No, no, no… I need to throw the laundry in first, then the dishes, then brush the cat, then a quick vacuum of the living room floor. Ooooh maybe I’ll get a shower in today!

By the time I’ve done the careful dance of gently setting her into her co-sleeper, I’ve gotten it all mapped out, and I’m on a mission.

If it is a day that I’ve really got it together, I can actually sit down and relax when I’m done.

I like those days.

I like them a lot.

So much so, that I am all about anything that can help me get my mad-dash cleaning done faster.

When BlogHer and Bounce asked me to try the Bounce Dryer Bar, I agreed immediately for a couple reasons. One, we are regular users of Bounce and love the products. Two, it is ridiculously easy. I just stick it and forget it? Sign me up.

004

After using the product for a week, I have to say, I’m impressed. That’s right, eleven loads of laundry later, and I am loving the Bounce Dryer Bar. I like that I’m not throwing away a sheet for each load of laundry. I like that it is incredibly easy and lasts about three months. I like that it is unscented and our clothes still come out soft. Bounce also helps control static and repel pet hair.

Oh, and one more thing, you aren’t supposed to use fabric softener on baby Tate’s clothes. What do I do now? The bar is stuck inside my dryer! Easy! You can pop the dryer bar out for any load that you don’t want fabric softener and pop it right back in.

How awesome is that?

Want to know what else is awesome? BlogHer and Bounce are giving away a $50 Visa gift card and a Bounce Dryer Bar to one So Wonderful, So Marvelous reader! Tell me, what would you do with just a few extra moments in your day?

I luuuurve my Bounce dryer bar! I just bought my 2nd Free & Clear one, actually. My only complaint is that I can't find the 'Free' ones everywhere, just the scent-y ones.
