How do I use Ultra Downy in the wash?
Simply add Ultra Downy to your fabric softener drawer. For top-loaders, you can also add directly to your washer drum during the rinse cycle, or use the Downy Ball if you don't feel like waiting around for the rinse to begin. Go to OLV/LINK for more information!

What does the Ultra mean in Ultra Downy?
Ultra simply means it's a concentrated product, having most of the water removed (as opposed to non-concentrated formulations). Be sure to carefully follow dosage instructions on the bottles.

I love Ultra Downy! What other products should I try?
We’re so glad! You might enjoy Fresh Protect In-Wash Odor Shield: use with detergent and Ultra Downy liquid fabric conditioner for 24-hour odour neutralization—like deodorant for your clothes!

Do I need to use detergent with Ultra Downy?
Yes, for best results, use WITH detergent. Ultra Downy is a fabric conditioner that will provide your clothing with scent, softness, static reduction and protection from the laundry damage of stretching, fading and fuzz.

How is Ultra Downy different from Unstopables?
Ultra Downy is a fabric conditioner; Unstopables are long-lasting scent boosters, not conditioners. Fabric conditioners provide scent, softness, static reduction and protection from the laundry damage of stretching, fading and fuzz.

What's the difference between a fabric conditioner and a dryer sheet?
Both provide fabrics with scent, softness and fight static; however, dryer sheets are heat activated in the dryer, whereas liquid fabric softeners are more easily infused in the wash. Additionally, fabric conditioners reduce wrinkles, provide for easy ironing and protect from stretching, fading and fuzz that occur in both the wash & dry processes.

It's excellent for sensitive skin!! I had a hard time finding a fabric softener, usually didn't use anything at all, until I came across Downy Free, and now I'm thrilled with my laundry, and my bedding is soooo soft!! I love it!!

Best Downy to use

On the rare occasion that I use fabric softener this is the one I reach for. I much prefer to add white vinegar to the final rinse cycle. We have never had musty towels since we learned the vinegar trick.

Beautifully Softens Clothes and Is Non-irritating

I have always had trouble finding the perfect fabric softener since I am highly sensitive to most. I tried in the past to buy ones that are unscented but even then I was not convinced. When I finally tried out Downy, I found that it softened my laundry beautifully and I most importantly I did not experience any sort of skin irritation. I really love this product and highly recommend it to everyone!
