Does your bounce dryer sheet leave marks on dark clothes?

I've noticed that it seems to leave streak marks on a couple pairs of my black pants. The other day I washed a black skirt after wearing it to church. It also came out with the black streaks on it. Does anybody else have the same problem? How do I get it to quit other than not use it?

  • Is it maybe because when the dryer stops, the article of clothing is laying on it for a period of time (be it short or long)? That's all I can think of. I don't use that stuff so it's just a guess.

  • It's because they use lard on the sheets, it can leave grease marks on the clothes. You could make your own. Dilute fabric softener with water, 1 part softener to 5 parts water, and put some rags in it. Wring a rag out as well as you can then pop it in the dryer. Method makes a wet dryer sheet that is lard-free too, easier than making your own but more expensive.

  • I dont use bounce dryer sheets, i use the one that sticks to the side of the dryer for like 2 months and then you replace it! Good luck, i have never heard of bounce sheets doing that

  • Ok, so now I feel silly, I meant to put on there the bounce dryer stick...tried to edit it and wouldn't let me edit. I use the bounce bar and it's doing it to the black clothes. Original poster.

  • I had that happen can usually tell when it's going to's like the sheet has too much stuff on it...I've cut it in half before and reused an old sheet and it helped.
