Bounce Back from Life’s Little Mishaps #BounceBack

I am being compensated by Bounce for my participation in this campaign as part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network. Have you ever had one of those days or weeks or months when you felt like you couldn’t keep up with your life? Well that’s the way I have been feeling lately. With a lot of traveling and a heavy workload, there are many things that haven’t received my full attention of late. Don’t get me wrong. Work is good. I like to have work. Work means I get paid. But when you get really busy there are sure to be some little mishaps. For example, after my most recent trip I didn’t have time to unpack my suitcase right away. Hours turned into days and days turned into… you get the picture. On this particular trip I received some delicious goodies that I didn’t have the heart to throw away, so I tossed them into my suitcase. When I finally got around to unpacking the combination of smells from cheese popcorn, chocolate, and dirty clothes was unbearable.

BounceBack Moments

If only I had thought to toss a Bounce Dryer Sheet into my suitcase. This whole unfortunate incident could have been avoided.

Since this little incident, I have come up with some other areas that can use a little help from Bounce Dryer Sheets. This messy sock drawer, for instance. I promised not to tell whose drawer this is. Shhh…

BounceBack Moments

Then there’s that closet that holds all the extra towels and sheets. It’s been smelling a little stale in there, and can definitely use a little freshening up.

Bounce Back with Bounce Dryer Sheets

I am happy to report that I am bouncing back, getting caught up, and will hopefully be able to slow down a bit to really enjoy the upcoming holiday season.

How do you #BounceBack from life’s little mishaps?

Bounce dryer sheets come in six, fresh scents: Outdoor Fresh, Fresh Linen, Spring Fresh, Meadows & rain, Spring & Renewal, and Fresh Lavender.

If you have sensitive skin, Bounce dryer sheets also come in a perfume and dye free version, which is recommended by dermatologists. And then there’s the Bounce Dryer Bar which attaches to the drum of the dryer. It’s pretty nifty!

  1. love this brand! Leaves my cloths smelling fresh and clean!

  2. I love the idea of putting a dryer sheet into my suitcase. Then when I get to my destination it’ll smell so fresh and of course will help with the trip home with all the dirty clothes. Thanks for the ideas!

  3. I really need to stash some bounce sheets around my house. Especially in the Dog’s room!! Pee-EWE!

  4. Love BOUNCE! Always leaves my clothes smelling amazing.

  5. I am a great fan of Bounce! Have used it for years, it is a great product.

  6. It really is kind of surprising how much it makes a difference in freshness! I like them out of the dryer as much as in!

  7. I’ve found lots of uses for bounce besides in the dryer. I put them in clothes to be stored for the season and my dad bought a car once and a squirrel had died in it and he got it cheaper because of the smell they couldn’t get out. I put a couple of bounce sheets under the seats and presto the smell was gone. It is great for drying clothes too!

  8. I love, love bounce use them all the time. I also make sure to put on at the bottom of all my trash cans in my house it keeps them smelling fresh!

  9. I keep forgetting I want to try these in my trash cans so they will smell fresh.

  10. I’ve always loved the smell of bounce. It’s refreshing.

  11. I have been sick for the past week and I’m just barely squeaking by. I definitely need to Bounce Back and soon!

  12. Love Bounce! I never think of using them for other needs. This is a great idea!

  13. Growing up my grandparents used Bounce and I always loved that smell. So now, I buy it exclusively too. I get the big box from Costco. After laundry is done I put the sheet in my drawer for a few days too ;)

  14. My grandparents always put these in drawers and in their suitcase when they travel and I guess I picked up on that from them. :)

  15. I love the smell of bounce. The other day I put a couple of used sheets in my sneakers and it got rid of the sneaker odor completely.

  16. I’ve done this for years. Stashing one in the vacuum also cuts down on dirt-smell and dog hair being recirculated!

  17. I need to stash some bounce sheets under the cat’s litterbox. Phew!

  18. I love the idea of putting one in a suitcase!

  19. I love the smell of fresh laundry so I would stick these everywhere!

  20. With 3 kids I have many of those days that I can’t keep up, I just keep pushing through. I love using dryer sheets in alternative ways. :)

    I hadn’t ever thought of putting a dryer sheet in my suitcase…. I will have to do that next time I go on a trip!

  22. We use Bounce! I love the pretty scents.

  23. I would have never thought of putting one in my drawers! So smart!

  24. I always leave Bounce dryer sheets around the house to freshen things up. In my drawers, in my space saver bags when I put winter clothes away, in suitcases, beach bags, etc… I love it.

  25. cheryl c. says:

    My husband and I take a lot of long trips, so I always put fabric softener sheets in our suitcases to keep everything fresh-smelling. I put them inside our shoes, too.

  26. First LOL! I have totally done that before and maybe worst! Second.. I LOVE that idea! Brilliant! I could use a few packs for little mishaps around here!

  27. Such great ideas! I am allergic to dryer sheets so I have to be careful where I put them. I like to put them inside of the coat closet to keep it fresh.

  28. Oh man, you know what I did? I pulled the cheesey popcorn and chocolate out of my suitcase so I could stuff my face with it…but I just left the dirty clothes in there and didn’t unpack it for several days, just left it on the living room floor because I didn’t have time to deal with it. So, I really feel you on this, LOL!! The dryer sheet idea is a great one, I hadn’t thought to use them that way before. I love the way Bounce smells.

    • I knew you would understand, Beeb! Should I confess that I ate the cheesy popcorn and chocolates after it sat in my suitcase for so long?

  29. I should really start using Bounce around my house. I’ve only been using it for laundry, but it makes sense that it will help you freshen up other areas of the home.

  30. I’ve used Bounce dryer sheets for many, many years now. They scents always smell so fresh and keeps everything smelling so good!

  31. I love this idea. I need some in my bathroom. It gets a little musty in there. My linen closet could use one also. The towels are all clean, yet it still starts to smell stale.

  32. Great ideas!! I love Bounce and use it all the time. I actually forgot to add a sheet to the dryer today and the static was INSANE!!! Never again!

  33. I love the fresh smell of Bounce. I put a sheet in the girls cheer bags. Even though cheerleaders claim to sparkle, not sweat, those bags can get a little ripe. My son’s closet is a good place too. The girls say it has a foot odor. Gotta love brutally honest sisters.

  34. I put bounce sheets in the bottom of my trash cans in the bathroom and kitchen. I also put them in the containers with my Christmas stuff.

  35. I actually put dryer sheets into all the shoes that are taken off inside our front door. Since that means A LOT of stinky shoes a few dryer sheets placed into the shoes keeps them from smelling a bit.

  36. Oh, I love that sock drawer. Seriously, though, does ANYONE have a neatly organized sock drawer? Is that even possible? :)

    I use Bounce sheets stored with my out of season shoes and sports equipment. They work absolute wonders for keeping them smelling fresh and clean.

  37. I love bounce! It takes me back to childhood! And when the clothes come out of the dyer…hmmmm
    And I keep it in my drawers too. it really helps keep everything fresh

  38. Ohh!! I definitely need to stash some Bounce in our linen closet!

  39. I love the idea of putting a Bounce sheet in my suitcase! The sock drawer is another place that needs one, especially my son’s sock drawer!

  40. I love the smell of Bounce! I need to throw a couple in my linen closets to help keep the freshness! Great tips!

  41. I love bounce so much. They rock!

  42. I’ve been keeping fabric softener sheets in my sock drawer for as long as I can remember but love the towel closet & suitcase ideas too!

  43. We have stuck them in dressers for as long as I can remember!

  44. Ahhhh I love bounce..use it all over the place; in the boys soccer bags; the dressers under the beds and in the dog beds, you will find it everywhere in my home..hahah.. thanks for a great reminder I have to switch them out this weekend :-)

  45. Hubby LOVES bounce. He can definitely tell once we run out and makes me bounce to the store lol

  56. I can totally relate to this. I am a busy mom of 4 and we have lots of stinky bags in our house. I like to use Bounce sheets to help reduce odors.

  57. I always pack dryer sheets in our suitcases when we go on trips.
