Bounce with microfiber towels?

So I was washing all of my MF towels and my wife not knowing any better put a sheet of bounce (fabric softener) - in the dryer to with the towels.

I know everyone has said not to use the liquid fabric softener... what are ill-effects of dry bounce sheets on the towels (in terms of chemicals, etc)? Do I have to rewash and dry them all?

YES. Bounce will leave a fabric softener material on your towels that will leave streaks on your paint and glass. You should rewash them and double rinse. Add a cup of white distilled vinegar to the final rinse cycle and they should be good to go.

+1 rewash it in hot water and do a double rinse if you can, softeners makes fabrics loose there absorbancy also
