As soon as I saw this on a commercial I just had to try it so I ran out to my local Walmart and picked myself up a bar. I bought this was a way to save me a few seconds from having to grab a dryer sheet and load it into the dryer; saving time is always great whenever you have kids, even if it is just a few seconds. Plus our household no longer contributes to filling of the landfills with dryer sheets. Apparently places like hotels have been using products like this for years. Wonder why it's taken so long to become available to ordinary households? Anyway, I do like the convenience of not having to remember to put a dryer sheet in everytime I load clothes into the dryer however, I have found that if you do not remove the clothes from the dryer, and the clothes sit on the bar for a while, it sometimes can leave a mark on the fabric. Also the first time I used the fresh linen one it left white marks on my dark clothes but it did come off when I shook it off and it stopped leaving white marks with continued usage. If I am unable to get to the finished load right away it does make me a bit worried, so I always make sure someone is able to pull out the load as soon as it's done. I do prefer the outdoor fresh scent to the fresh linen scent. The only thing I found annoying is that I could have sworn I read on the box that there are refill bars available. Then it wouldn't be necessary to purchase the whole thing again, but I can't find a refill bar anywhere. I have to say other than that it works great for us and it leaves our clothes feeling soft and smelling great.
