  1. Simply shake a little (or a lot) into the cap.
  1. Then toss the beads into the washer at the beginning of the load, before you start the wash and before you drop in your clothes.
  • Simply measure the desired amount of in-wash scent booster beads in the provided cap, and then toss the beads into your washing machine drum before adding clothes.

  • Downy Cool Cotton is available in liquid fabric conditioner, dryer sheets, and in-wash scent booster beads. Use all three for the absolute best scent experience.

  • Yes. Use beads WITH laundry detergent. Downy Cool Cotton In-Wash Scent Booster Beads are for adding extra touch-activated scent to your clothes and fabrics, not for cleaning.

  • For best results—yes! In-wash scent booster beads are designed to add even more of the touch-activated scent you love to your fabrics. Liquid fabric softener infuses clothes with touch-activated scent, as well as protects your clothes from stretching, fading, and fuzz.

  • Of course! Both in-wash scent booster beads and dryer sheets infuse your clothes with a great, premium scent, but the beads have our new touch-activated technology, while dryer sheets fight static cling. It’s best to use both with every load of wash, resulting in wonderfully long-lasting scents and incredible softness.

So fresh and so clean!
These beads fantastically scent any blanket, sheet set or towels that merit that extra boost of fragrance. Who doesn't enjoy the scent of clean clothes!? I usually toss them in when I want that fresh scent to last and give me the ultimate pleasure of clean scented comfort. The scent really lasts so my living room throws and bedding usually get the treatment. I refrain from adding them to my clothes since I usually wear perfume and don't want the scents competing. There are so many fragrance bead options out there now, but I found this one to give me that clean linen freshness that so many candles and room sprays try to imitate to create a calm vibe. Reminds me of my childhood when my mom would do laundry and dry our clothes on the line in our backyard.

Smells great
Wow! This really adds a boost to your laundry! I use my normal brand of detergent and add a few of these and my clothes come out so fresh and the smell lasts for a long time even after being stored in drawers or closets. Easy to use and you do not have to use a bunch to get fresh laundry

The Downy Cool Cotton Beads added freshness to my laundry. I really liked the fresh, clean linen type scent of the beads. The measuring cup cap makes it easy to choose how much product you want to use depending on your needs. A good way to add a boost of fragrance to your laundry. The product is not overly strong or overbearing.
