Procter and Gamble, the owner of the Bounce brand, makes no claim of extraordinary insect fighting ability; probably because, being totally untrue, those claims would be instantly repudiated.

A few other unsupportable, but interesting, claims for Bounce:
*Cram one down the filler neck in your car's fuel tank
and increase gas mileage by 430%.
*Tape ten sheets across both of your car's bumpers to prevent accidents--it repels other vehicles.
*Put a sheet in your dishwasher and your plates will be wrinkle-free.
*A sheet or two in the bottom of your computer case will prevent BSODs [windows errors] and corrupted files.
