FAQs

How do I use the Downy Ball?

Simply pour any Downy fabric conditioner up to the fill line in the bottle cap (per  instructions on the bottle), add to the Downy Ball, seal it and drop it right on top of your fabrics in your top-loader at the start of the wash. (Be sure to use only in  traditional—non-HE, or non-high-efficiency—washing machines.) The Downy Ball  time-releases  automatically so you don't have to wait around for the rinse cycle to  begin.  

Can I use the Downy Ball in my front load washing machine?

No—the Downy Ball only works in top-loading—non-HE, or non-high-efficiency—washing machines.

Dryer sheets have numerous benefits, including softening, fighting pesky static cling and adding a delightful Downy scent.

Total dissapointment and waste of money.

Worked great the first time I used it. I was very happy that I was no longer going to miss the cycle and have to redo my clothes. However, my happiness was short-lived since it didn't work at all after the first time. The ball opens up but does not release the Downy at all for some reason, or it opens and some of the Downy comes out but stains my clothes. I'm back to having to pay attention to the washer to know when I manually have to go add the fabric softener. Total dissapointment since I love listening to music while I do laundry and clean the house but since the ball doesn't work I can't listen to anything but the washer or I'll miss the timing.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME

New Kenmore HE top loading wash machine purchased last month, recommended using Downy Ball. Does not work. Period. Just leaves a puddle of blue goo on my clothes.
