The name Bounce signifies the way the sheet of fabric softener tumbles with the load during a typical drying cycle, distributing its softening ingredients.
When different dry fabrics rub together in the dryer, the electrons in one fabric transfer to another, creating static electricity. When one fabric has more electrons than another, the fabrics cling together. To prevent static cling, Procter and Gamble developed Bounce to act as a conductor, releasing molecules of fabric softener that give the fabrics similar surface characteristics, preventing electron transfer.
Each Bounce sheet is nine-inches square and made from non-woven porous rayon cloth.
Bounce reduces the amount of effort needed during ironing because its softening agents act to smooth fibers, reduce wrinkles, and help the iron glide more easily.
Bounce fabric softener sheets can be found in more than one out of every four homes in the United States. (Fabric softener can be found in 85 percent of all homes in the United States; 78 percent of those homes use Bounce.)
Bounce sheets are available in Outdoor Fresh, Fresh Linen, Pure Sport, Sweet Dreams, Gentle Breeze Bounce, and Bounce Free (with no fragrance).
