Snuggle Exhilarations Dryer Sheets - About.com Laundry Product Review

Photo by MML

If you are looking for a dryer sheet that offers a subtle fragrance and still delivers softening and static control, Snuggle Exhilarations may be the one for you. I don't like overly perfumed laundry and I found these dryer sheets to be much more pleasant to a sensitive nose.

Snuggle Dryer Sheets

Since Snuggle brand hit the shelves, it has been a popular choice as a fabric softener. The original Snuggle line is now divided into dryer sheets and liquid fabric softeners. A second product line called Snuggle Exhilarations is also available in liquid and dryer sheet forms. The line includes Snuggle Exhilarations Dryer Sheets in White Lavender & Sandalwood, Sweet Blossoms & Wildflowers, White Lilac & Spring Flowers, Blue Iris & Bamboo and Wild Orchid & Vanilla in 70 and 105 count packages.

Snuggle dryer sheets are safe to use in both gas and electric dryers. Place the sheet on top of wet clothes and start the dryer cycle as usual. Discard after use.

The product should not be used on children's sleepwear or garments labeled as flame resistant. Dryer sheets also reduce the absorbancy of cotton fabrics like fleece, velour, chenille or terry cloth.

The listed ingredients are fabric softeners (catatonic) and fragrance. The complete list of ingredients can be found on the Sun Products website. They are:

  • Polyester Sheet
  • Polyquaternium-1
  • Hydrogenated Tallow
  • Stearic Acid

    The instructions are offered in English and Spanish.

  • Snuggle and the Sun Products Story

    Snuggle fabric softener was introduced by Unilever to select markets in the early 1980s. By 1989, it was a nationwide brand. Since 1983, Snuggle Bear has been the mascot. The puppet was created by Kermit Love of the Jim Henson Studios. The voice was originally provided by Corinne Orr. As of late 2009, the bear is voiced by Elena M. Schloss, a New York animation and commercial voice over actor. In 2008, Unilever sold the brand to Sun Products.

    Sun Products Corporation is a North American manufacturer and marketer of fabric care and household products with annual sales of more than $2 billion. It holds the second largest market share in North America. Sun employs 3,500 people and maintains offices and Research & Development facilities in Fairfield County, Connecticut; Salt Lake City, Utah and Toronto, Canada. Manufacturing facilities are under operation in Salt Lake City, Utah; Bowling Green, Kentucky; Dyersburg, Tennessee; Baltimore, Maryland and Houston, Texas.

    Sun Products was formed in September 2008 from the combination of Unilever’s North American fabric care business and Huish Detergents, Inc, a leading manufacturer of private label laundry and dish products. It is headquartered in Wilton, Connecticut.

    Sun Products brands also include all®, Wisk®, Surf®, Sun® and Sunlight® laundry detergents. Sun Products is also the manufacturer for many retailer branded fabric care products.

    Laundry Guide Recommendation

    I gave Snuggle Exhilarations White Lilac and Spring Flowers Dryer Sheets a try with our laundry. The clothes came out soft and static-free. Again, I found the scent to be more subtle than many dryer sheets. It does not overwhelm your clothes or closet.

    I will admit that I'm not a big fan of most fabric softeners due to the coating they leave on fabrics. The coating makes the clothing less flame resistant, less absorbent and less breathable while wearing. I prefer to soften our clothes and linens with baking soda or white distilled vinegar. However, if you like to add scent, Snuggle is a good choice and is less expensive that other national brands.
