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.

Does not open

I have a Roper washing machine. I have now tried this product several times in the hopes that it would work out. However, it has not. The ball never opens up. It's a shame, I was really hoping to get rid of drier sheets!

Doesn't open most of the time

I use to use one years ago, I just started using a new one I just bought and it doesn't open when it's supposed to which negates having it. My new washer doesn't have a feature where I can pour the fabric conditioner into the compartment and doesn't allow me to unlock the machine to pour it in...very disappointed; the very first model downey came out with worked much better.

Came apart after one use.

I used the downy ball once and it did not open during the cycle at all. When I took it out to empty it before trying again, the plug came apart completely and 3 pieces fell out.
