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.

Dear Downy: You Need To Make These Available Again

My mom (aged 93) had a Downy Fabric Softener Dispenser Ball for many years. It came as a special promotion, FREE, with the purchase of Downy Fabric Softener. Last year, she moved into a retirement home and gave her ball away (to a friend who kept admiring it). Now, she realizes she needs another one, but she can't find them anywhere. They are for sale on Amazon.ca, but the prices are exorbitant--$22CAN for one ball, plus shipping! Some people are privately hoarding them and selling them on eBay for $40. RIDICULOUS! Downy: You need to get them made again in large numbers and offer them free, or for a small token price, as a special promotion. You would have lots of people snapping them up and, if they are anything like my mom, they would then purchase genuine Downy Fabric Softener for years.

Downy Ball

As others have writer Please bring back the Downy ball. I had a downy ball for years and it was the best thing ever invented but somewhere along the line after multiple moves it was lost. I live in an apt with washes that do not have the fabric softer dispenser and having another downy ball would make laundry so much easier. Please Please bring back the ball.

The Downy Ball - I need one!!!

The last few washers I've owned had a built in dispenser, now I'm in an apt. building with a machine that does not have it's own dispenser, I've been searching high and low for the downey ball dispenser, I didn't realize they had been taken off the market. Please bring it back to Canadian stores, we aren't all fortunate enough to have a washer with a built in fabric softener dispenser, besides, just think about all the extra $ the company will make when we start buying fabric softener again....I'd say it's a win, win. Thank you
