Asda tumble dryer sheets
We have owned a tumble dryer for a good few years now and until having a baby it was barely used, however since my wash load seems to have tripled in size I find I use it a few times a day just to get everything dry so I've not got piles of wet washing everywhere!
What are they for, where can I buy them and how much are they?-
I came across Asda Moonflower and Lavender softening tumble drying sheets by chance really. They are not something I was looking for when I did my weekly shop but I was drawn to their sale price of 45p (usually around 90p a box) in Asda and curiosity made me read what they were for.
The box is reasonably small, smaller then a box of tissues, and states there were 40 sheets within the box. The box is blue in colour and has a lovely floral design on the front with a big basket of washing. Also on the front of the box it states that they are sheets that you pop into the tumble dryer that help freshen and fragrance your laundry whilst making ironing easier.
Now I'm a total sucker for beautiful smelling laundry and I know that I spend more then I need to on fabric softener and nice smelling wash powder just so our clothes smell lovely. I could actually smell the beautiful scent through the unopened box so I knew how lovely they smelt before I'd even used them and at 45p I was willing to give them a try. Even if they didn't work for what they said they were for I wasn't going to grumble at that price.
When I got home I couldn't wait to give them a go, so I opened the box to find approximately 40 (I didn't count) thin sheet that almost looked like webbing that you take trousers up with, they had a slight oily touch to them although they were not wet and the scent from them was very strong, but in a nice way.
I popped one of the sheets into my tumble dryer amongst my wet washing and left the machine on for around an hour. As my dryer became warmer I could smell the lovely smell that I first found when opening the box so knew they were 'working' as such.
Once my washing was dry I emptied my dryer to find the sheet no longer felt oily (I assume each sheet is for one load each and you dispose of each time) and my washing felt soft and smelt absolutely beautiful.
Did they work?-
My washing felt lovely and soft to touch and I noticed there were a lot less creases for me to iron out. In fact, where I would normally iron bedding I no longer needed to when using these sheets. My laundry also smelt absolutely lovely and after ironing, folding and putting it away I could still smell the lovely smell when I got clothes from the drawer over a week later so the scent defiantly lasts.
Would I recommend them?-
Absolutely! If like me, you're a mum who seems to spend an awful lot of time doing laundry I would say this helps cut down on that time. However this is a product that would suit absolutely everyone (who owns a tumble dryer) amd at 45p is an absolute grab of a bargain. I have actually found that I no longer need to purchase an expensive washing powder and expensive softner just for the scent as these mask that anyway so in the long run I have cut down on the amount I spent on other laundry products. Well done Asda!
This is a review of Asda Tumble Dryer Sheets Reviews which are fragranced with moonflower and ylang. You get 40 sheets in a pack which is enough to last a long time in our house.
The sheets come in a simple purple coloured cardboard box with the Asda chosen for you branding at the top. There are illustrations of the flowers that the sheets are scented with. To open there is a perforated flap that enables you to get the sheets out and keep the box shut when not in use.
I had been using some tumble dryer sheets from Tesco previously and thought they were nice then I bought these to try. I noticed that the sheets were really wiry in comparison to the soft sheets from Tesco. You never really come in to contact with the actual sheet so the softness is not really of any concern, I was just a little surprised.
The sheets left the box easily and most importantly one at a time (which is all you need per load). I suppose the key factor with these is the smell which is delightful and infuses the clothes as they dry. Once the load is done you need to fish out the sheet and throw it away. It no longer has any scent in it and cannot be reused.
After using these sheets my clothes are soft and separated with no static. I have been able to get away without ironing a lot of clothes I would have normally ironed before we got our tumble dryer which is getting a lot of use due to the bad weather! When it is suitable drying weather I will get the clothes back out on the line.
At the moment these sheets are priced at 92p which is very reasonable and far more economical than the branded versions. This works out at just over 2p per sheet.
I would be more than happy to buy these tumble dryer sheets again in the future. I like the fragrance, results and price and have been pleased with their performance.
Up until recently tumble dryer sheets were not something I was very familiar with at all. The only reason I ever used them was because my washing machine broke down so I had my mate/neighbour washing my clothes and in return I offered to do her drying and when I did she gave me a box of tumble dryer sheets to use, I pinched one for my washing and my love affair began with them which meant the next time I was in Asda I picked myself a box up to try.
I picked the Asda Monnflower & Ylang Tumble Dryer sheets and they came in a lilac box with white and yellow flowers depicted on them. On the two sides of the box we are told what they are and who they are made by and that they are meant to 'Make ironing easier' and are softening then on the smaller sides of the box ingredients, instructions for use, cautions and contact details for Asda are given. These open up via a side opening to the side of the box in the way of a flap and all in all this is nice enough looking and informative plus easy to open packaging from Asda.
Well you get 40 of them in a box and the idea of course is to place one of these on your damp washing in the tumble drying till your washing is dry and then to dispose of it.
The polyester white sheets are very large indeed and an oblong in shape and smells really highly of a floral scent so in my view this is beset suited to be used by the more feminine amongst us for that reason. Not only was I initially surprised by the size of the sheet but how strong the scent was but I kind of guessed that as I could smell these in the unopened box in the store prior to purchasing them.
These are simply gorgeous and a nice added extra to washing. I do use fabric conditioner and in fact last time I was in Asda I bought the matching scent to this in the fabric softener so not only do I find my washing to come out of my tumble dryer smelling gorgeous and for days even when stored but really, really soft. What I find with these tumble dryer sheets is that my washing is made even easier to iron than usual and more anti static and fabrics feel even softer against my skin.
I was worried these may leave a slight residue on my fabrics as they contain oils but they really don't and now I've started using them I will continue to always buy them for a touch of added luxury to my washing and drying routine!
Only available in boxes of 40 costing 92p a box and in different scents too that I can't wait to get my hands on and try!
I have been using these Asda Tumble Dryer sheets for a while now. They usually cost me around 90p and are located in the aisle with all the washing powder. You might find them very hard to find though as I do if I go in a different supermarket to my usual one, as the box is very small, and there is only a small selection of dryer sheets to find in a huge aisle, I'm always stood there ages looking for them!
The box is about the size of an A5 sheet of paper, and the box is purple and black. There are flowers on the box, and it does look very appealing to buy. The scent of these dryer sheets is moonflower and ylang. It is a lovely fresh smell, and these dryer sheets really do make a difference to the smell of your washing. My washing machine isn't draining the fabric softener at the moment, it just stays in the tray, I really miss my fabric softener making my washing smell nice! With these dryer sheets, at least if my washing goes in the tumble, it comes out smelling just like the fabric softener in this scent I usually use!
Dryer sheets are supposed to decrease the amount of creases in your washing so you don't have to iron anything. I use dryer balls which leave my washing with hardly any creases already so since I have been using these dryer sheets I'm not sure if they do cut down on ironing, because my dryer balls make sure there are no creases anyway.
The only reason I use these dryer sheets, is to make my washing smell nicer, and it really does. When I run out, you can really tell that you have not put a dryer sheet in there.
The actual sheets are so thin, but very soft to touch. You just put one in your dryer with your washing, and when it's done, it always gets lost in my washing, but when I find it, it's usually just a screwed up bit of cloth, and it just goes in the bin afterwards. You can't reuse them, they don't work after one use. The box re shuts too, to keep them fresh when you take one out. You just pull them out, just a bit like you would a baby wipe or a tissue from a tissue box. You get 40 in a box, which lasts quite a while for such a cheap price. I cannot compare them to proper brands, as I have always just bought Asda's own, and they work just fine.
You are not suppose to use these dryer sheets on children's sleepwear or any clothing labelled flame resistant, it says on the back of the box, as is may reduce the effectiveness of the flame resistance.
I highly recommend these dryer sheets, just for fresh smell it leaves on your washing! They are cheap and no hassle to use at all.
We have recently started shopping in Asda. Like everyone we are feeling the economic pinch and cannot really justify doing our weekly grocery shop in Sainsbury's anymore. I had heard great things about Asda for a long time and then when we had a new one open fairly near to our house we started shopping there.
One of the products I like to use in my washing machine/integrated dryer is tumble dryer sheets which work really well for me as I like my washing to smell nice and fresh and clean. I don't think that clothes come out as nice as if they do when you add a tumble drying sheet into the machine before you dry. I had been using the Sainsbury's own brand so it went without saying that I would try the Asda own brand as they are less than half the price of Bounce sheets which definitely saves on the weekly shop.
Asda say that these sheets freshen and fragrance and that they make ironing easier. The sheets are fragranced with something called Moonflower and Ylang. The smell is fresh and flowery in my opinion. You can tell that these sheets have a smell and if you rub them between your fingers you can tell that they do have a texture to them. They are quite strong when you smell them on their own but once you have added them to your dryer and dried your clothes with them the smell is definitely more subtle and subdued. They are made of polyester.
The sheets help to protect your clothes from creasing, static and loss of freshness and so by reducing the creasing it makes items easier to iron too. I never really have any static on my clothes so I would say that these sheets work well and my clothes are nice to iron too.
The sheets are easy to use as you just pull one out of the little box they come in and pop it on top of your wet washed clothes. These sheets leave my laundry nice and fresh too with just a hint of fragrance which is nice, I don't like it when my clothes have an overpowering smell of washing fabric type smells but this is really subtle and fresh.
A pack of 40 costs just £0.92 meaning that each sheet costs just 2.3p which is so cheap per wash. I buy two packs at a time which will last me for nearly two months so it's very good value.
All in all, a good cheap product to add to your drying that works well.
I only tend to use my tumble dryer in the winter as I quite like my clothes to have that fresh outdoorsy smell that you don't get with indoor drying. So come winter, away goes the clothes line and in comes the tumble dryer.
I had heard of tumble dryer sheets before but was always a bit sceptical about their effectiveness. However, a few weeks ago I was reading a magazine article about "unusual uses for usual things". One of the items they were talking about was Tumble Dryer Sheets and they listed several ways these can be used apart from in the tumble dryer. On the strength of this I decided to invest in some and on my next shopping trip, to Asda as it happened I looked at the various makes of tumble dryer sheets. As I didn't know if I would get on with them I picked the cheapest which was Asda's own in Ylang & Jasmine fragrance - at 94p for 40 sheets, it was a cheap way of finding out if these things worked.
I firstly tried them in my tumble dryer, which is after all what they are meant for! The result was very pleasant smelling laundry and a nicely fragranced room. I'm not sure that I could say that the clothes felt softer or that ironing was easier - the claim on the box - but the nice fresh smell was an improvement on the sometimes, slightly damp, musty smell that can be got from a tumble dryer.
I then tried the ideas in the magazine article:
* Place one or two sheets inside the cardboard tube of the toilet roll before placing on the holder - gives bathroom a nice smell.
* One or two sheets in the dust bag of a vacuum cleaner give a pleasant smell to the room where it is used. (My hoover is an upright with a paper dust bag - not sure about use in other types of vacuum cleaner).
I will definitely buy these again as they were good value for money with a pleasant fragrance which definitely made my laundry have a nice fresh smell and the other uses above are a bonus.
I stumbled across this product by accident one day. I am in the habit of using Tumble dryer sheets for years now - no idea if they work, if anyone knows let me know, as once I've started using the sheets i've never stopped.I used to use Bounce sheets, as they were the only ones on the market, and one day when I was reaching for the box of overpriced sheets (£3.50 for 40 sheets)I found these ones on the shelf next to Bounce.
At 98p for 40 sheets there was a huge difference in price, butI was game enough to give them a shot at that price and thought if I didn't like them then I could just bin them or give them away.
The smell is Jasmine and Ylang Ylang. I'm not sure of the smell of Ylang Ylang, but you can smell the flowery/musky smell of Jasmine when you open the box. I don't find this scent goes onto your clothes, but that's not a bad thing, as I never picked the Bounce scent up either.
You get 40 sheets in the box and I put 1 sheet in with every load, and the loads are usually quite full. They have quite a scratchy feeling these sheets, but do seems a bit softer once your washing has dried.
The design of the box is just a cardboard box which is a nice meduim lilac colour. The instructions are clear on the back and it has a picture of a pile of neatly ironed clothes. These sheets are mean to help with static build up and meant to reduct creasing, but I can't say I've noticed about the creasing.
Certainly worth the 98p spent. If you like Bounce, you will love these!
I do believe some supermarkets can see me coming when it comes to household products. I use Ironing Water, my Mum never did, but it smells nice, I now use Asda Easy Iron Tumble Dryer Sheets with Ylang & Jasmine, no, Mum didn't use those either, but I have a good reason to do so.
The reason is my fantastic little Creda tumble dryer, which I reviewed earlier in the year. As wonderful as my tumble dryer is, it does make my clothes smell a bit, well, processed at times.
I used Bounce for a while but at £3 for a pack, I swiftly stopped using them and moved on to these Asda sheets at a bargain 97p for 40 sheets.
The packaging promises that it will make ironing quicker, it adds freshness and fragrance and it also softens clothes.
The packaging isn't what is shown in the Dooyoo picture, it is attractive and appealing, lilac, white with flowers, stars and a picture of a tumble dryer and an iron, it is feminine and my other half doesn't like putting them in the basket when he goes shopping and tell me 'I can't buy those, the checkout people will think I'm weird', well I'm not sure they will analyse your shopping that much, but it is aimed at the female shopper! The box has a tear/flip lid, which has and little cardboard tab so you can close the box to prevent the fragrance fading.
The pack contains 40 sheets, infused with Jasmine & Ylang. The direction are pretty simple, load your dryer, place sheet on top, remove when finished, I love simplicity like this.
The sheets themselves are about the size of an A5 sheet of paper once folded out, the directions on the pack don't indicate whether you should fold the sheets out or not but I have tried both ways and cannot see any difference, though my preferred method is to fold the sheet out. The sheets were fairly stiff and looked like compressed, fine threads of material, with lots of areas of scent and conditioner impregnated within the sheet. The smell is beautiful but I can smell much more jasmine and a lavender hint, rather than a ylang and jasmine, but this doesn't matter much when they smell so good anyway!
With a full tumble dryer of clothes just begging for a tumble dryer sheet, I popped one in with my clothes, shut the door, turned on the dryer and sat back and waited.
After the machine ran it's cycle, the tumble sheet was easily found at the top of the load, the sheet had obviously lost their impregnated scent and conditioner and now was soft and resembling the wunder web type material you use for hemming trousers and skirts. Unloading the dryer, there was no obvious, overwhelming smell which was immediately noticeable. However, individual clothes did smell nice, but I couldn't really detect a definite smell of jasmine, ylang or both, but they smelt fresher than they normally would when they would come out of the tumble dryer.
As these also promised a crease busting action, I reached for the iron, minus my Comfort Ironing Water, to really test these sheets out. Taking a creased blouse, I began ironing. Well, if there was any crease busting action, it was severely lacking here but the smell became slightly more noticeable, which was nice but again not overpowering or particularly noticeable. The fragrance did last but only for a day or so once things were ironed.
I used these tumble sheets on my towels too. The tumble sheets made a really big difference to my towels, the smell really infused within my towels and as I don't iron my towels, they stayed scented for a good few days before fading. However this wasn't the real bonus, the real bonus was the softness of the towels which a real difference to how dry my towels normally feel after tumble drying.
After using the tumble dryer sheets on full and half loads of drying, it became obvious to me that the sheets worked best on towels, hand towels, tea towels and bath towels and on half loads of light cottons, like t-shirt, lightweight shirts and underwear. I can't understand why they work fine on a full load of towels yet they don't work as well on a full load of light cottons. With synthetic clothes, these pick up so little of the scent and make very little difference to the iron ability. As with synthetics, heavier weighted cottons pciked up very little scent but did have a few less creases than normal, but not that much less to be frank.
Despite keeping the box open, accidentally, for a few days, the sheets lost none of their fragrance.
Another purpose I used them for recently was on my trip to Las Vegas, I took one sheet and placed it in the middle of my suitcase, the sheets made my clothes smell really nice and I used the sheet again as a drawer liner in my hotel too, which equally worked as well.
I believe these are good tumble dryer sheets, I don't use them on every load anymore and I don't believe they have any kind of crease busting action, but they are fine for giving light cottons and towels a decent fragrance and they do keep your clothes fresh and leave a light scent on cottons and a slightly deeper scent on towels for a good few days.
At 97p, I really don't believe you can go far wrong with these if you just want something to take away that tumble smell you can sometimes get, if you want more crease busting and a guaranteed softness on every type of fabric, then I would suggest investing in one of the other brands that are available.
Easy to use and not expensive, definitely worth a try but don't expect the world with this but I really do recommend using them as drawer or suitcase liners if you don't get on with them!
