If running out of dryer sheets fills you with terror, never fear: the internet has it covered.

General Electric Appliances announced the newest feature in its line of connected home appliances today: automatic dryer sheet replenishment.

The dryer sheets join dishwasher detergent and laundry detergent among the items that connected GE appliances can automatically order through Amazon’s Dash Replenishment program.

Owners of GE connected laundry dryers simply set up a Dash Replenishment account and identify what kind of dryer sheets they want. The smart dryer then keeps track of the number of sheets by counting cycles, and orders more when they run low.

“We know that more families are increasingly using Dash Replenishment to make their lives easier, and this new capability with our dryers will take the hassle out of keeping track of the household stock of dryer sheets,” said Julie Muennich, director of marketing for laundry products at GE Appliances, in a statement.

Other brands, including Whirlpool and Samsung, have developed a myriad of replenishment-enabled devices since the Amazon Dash Replenishment program was announced last fall. Devices range from dishwashers to dog bowls to laser printers.
