Directions from Packaging

Usage: As with Bounce sheets, if spotting occurs rub spot with a bar soap and rewash in warm water. Three Easy Steps. Remove paper backing. Press Firmly onto dryer drum as shown (on packaging). Avoid uneven surfaces so adhesive sticks well. Do no attach to dryer fin. After about 4 months, a replacement indicator will appear; simply remove the cartridge and replace with a new one.


Warnings

Warnings: Bounce products are safe for all washables, but are not for use on children's sleepwear or other garments labeled as flame resistant as they may reduce flame resistance. Keep out of reach of toddlers and pets to avoid accidental ingestion.

This product is not certified as a green cleaner.

PETA Cruelty-free Companies

Companies that join the "Caring Consumer" program of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a leading international animal rights advocacy organization, attest that "neither they nor their ingredient suppliers conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations or finished products, and that they pledge not to do so in the future."

Understanding scores

EWG provides information on cleaning product ingredients from the published scientific literature, to supplement incomplete data available from companies and the government. The ratings indicate the relative level of concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in this product - not the product itself - compared to other product formulations. The ratings reflect potential health hazards but do not account for the level of exposure or individual susceptibility, factors which determine actual health risks, if any.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Healthy Cleaning ingredient hazard score, from A to F, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED® mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.
