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.

This is a fabulous product!

I would be lost without my "downy ball". Throw it in the wash and forget about it. Love it! I need to purchase more , as my Daughter- Inlaw has asked for one and my own daughter. How can I get these in Canada, please?

The Downy ball is an awesome product

Like others, lost my downy ball during a move. Have been looking for years and can't find them for sale anywhere. You have a button above that says 'buy now', but it does nothing and goes no where. Where can I buy one of these balls? I haven't been buying your fabric softener ever since because no way I'm standing at the washing machine waiting to add it during the rinse cycle. You guys are losing out big money from all the folks that would use liquid fabric softener but instead are having to use Snuggle dryer sheets instead.

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.
