Just fill it up and drop it in.
First, measure the correct dosage of Downy for your size load of laundry: small, medium, or large. Push the top of the Downy Ball down, so that you can pour the Downy in. Once you’ve added the Downy, pull the ring tight to close the lid.
Now, just toss the Downy Ball into the washing machine! During the rinse cycle, the spinning action of the washer will open the ball and release the Downy Fabric Conditioner.
