    How to do Laundry the Downy Way

FAQs

Do I need to use detergent with Fresh Protect?

Yes, for best results, use Fresh Protect with your normal detergent as it is NOT a detergent—it compliments detergent to neutralize odours, activated as you move throughout your day. Like deodorant for your clothes!

Is Fresh Protect safe on all clothing? 

Absolutely! Fresh Protect is safe for all colours, fabrics and loads. Simply add the beads into the washer drum before you add clothing, start the wash and enjoy!

How does Fresh Protect neutralize odours? 

Fresh Protect features the new Voyager Zen technology in a dual perfume–microcapsule. Activated as you move throughout the day, these components bind to and neutralize malodour molecules. It really is like deodorant for your clothes! 

Can I use Fresh Protect with Ultra Downy? 

Yes! When used together, you will get the same benefits you love about Downy liquid fabric conditioner, PLUS 24-hour odor neutralization from Fresh Protect!

How is Fresh Protect different from Unstopables? 

Unstopables give your fabrics a 12-week boost of scent, while Fresh Protect provides 24-hour odour neutralization and freshness that activate as you move.

What is the correct dosage for Fresh Protect? 

Use half a cap (to the middle line) for everyday odour protection and a whole cap (to the top) for maximum odour protection.

Gets rid of tough laundry odours

Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Scent Booster with Febreze Odor Defense Is a laundry scent booster in pellet form. My dad works in the construction industry so you can imagine his work clothes: stained, muddy, greasy and just generally smelly from sweat & other work related odours. I thought I'd put Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Scent Booster with Febreze Odor Defense to the test first on his clothes. I used one capful per load, tossed in with the clothes so the little pellets could get to work from the beginning during the wash cycle. Coming from the wash I could smell the difference already and the dryer only enhanced the scent. During the work week from Monday to Friday I could smell Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Scent Booster with Febreze Odor Defenseon his clothing. Next step was to try them on our towels which we air dry. Same process again; adding one capful per load during the wash cycle. We air dry towels and during the drying process every time I passed by I got a waft of Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Scent Booster with Febreze Odor Defense. More than two weeks later my linen cupboard smells great. You can also smell the scent on towels that are reused. Before I never saw the need for adding a scent booster to my laundry but now I use the regularly for these kinds of loads. I've also used it on sofa slip covers and other items that aren't washed as frequently.

Smells So Good!

I used Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Scent Booster with Febreze Odor Defense with every load of laundry I have done over the past two weeks. I would add half a cap to each wash. As soon as I took it out of the washing machine I could smell the fresh scent already. We actually stopped using dryer sheet because the laundry already smelled so good. I work as a nurse and a co worker commented on how good my uniform smelled. This is a great product for anyone especially a family with kids that play sports. Their uniforms will smell great!

We Can't Do Laundry Without It!

Our clothes and towels smell wonderful right out of the wash and days later. It is great for my nursing uniforms. I have had coworkers comment on how nice my uniforms smell. My husband likes how he can use a towel that has come from the cupboard and it still has a nice scent. We don't even need dryer sheets anymore.
