Proctor Informative - Bounce Laundry Softener (Scented Type) May Be Toxic
I don’t understand how anyone can tolerate the odor of a drying agent like the strongly scented fabric softener Bounce. A family member asked me to bring her a package when I go to see her overseas. I put the package in a small room with other things for her. When I entered that room a couple of days later the bounce odor was overwhelming. I got some saran wrap and put two layers around the package and added two layers of newspaper. But the odor came through. I proceeded to open the package and left it outside for days. It still smells although less strongly. I plan to leave it outside until my trip starts.
There are some articles that address the toxicity of these types of products. Everyone should read them.
