Very good - and not just in the tumble drier
on 26 February 2015
I always used sheets in the tumble drier (either Lenor or Bounce), but in the last few years they've been disappearing from the shops.
I was pleased to find them on Amazon, and they are just as good as I remember. I prefer to use 2 sheets at once, or three for extra softness, and at this price, that's not a problem. Clothes are noticeably softer, and I like the fresh smell.
I recently discovered another use for them too - as a tobacco odour eliminator, yes, they do the job.
After a relative had smoked in my kitchen for several hours, the place reeked of stale cigarette smoke, and no amount of Febreze, window opening, or white vinegar could remove the odour completely. After 2 days of that lingering smell, I was ready to try anything, and in desperation, I draped 4 tumble drier sheets over the hot kitchen radiator, with a piece of kitchen roll underneath. All right, I was very careful - yes, I know that these things contain a lot of chemicals, and I also know that the surface of a radiator can be a lot hotter than the inside of a tumble drier. I kept a very close eye on the sheets; ready to remove the lot if they turned the slightest shade of brown. There were no problems - the sheets heated up, but they remained white and unscathed. For the next few hours, my kitchen smelled very strongly of Lenor tumble drier sheets - quite fragrant, in fact. As the sheets dried out and the Lenor smell faded away, I realised that there was no longer a smoky smell, and it hasn't returned. Result.
