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.

My Downy Ball Came Apart

I bought a Downy Ball today along with liquid fabric softener. The Downy Ball came apart the first time I tried to use it. I pushed in the top and poured in the fabric softener. When I pulled the ring up to close it,, the ring mechanism broke. Now it’s inside the ball and the whole thing is unusable. It’s very disappointing. I’ll never buy another Downy Ball. This one is going in the trash.

The downy ball is just a gimmick.

How can the Downy Ball be easier and more convenient than pouring the softener into the softener tray on your washer? It's not easier, you've got this ball with a little hole in the top and it's very easy to make a mess pouring into the the hole. I'm watching my Mother who is 80 y.o. and she just made a mess because she poured it too fast. I'm thinking the washer tray is 5 times the size of that hole in the ball., why would you use the ball it's time consuming. I have to clean up this mess, and the ball keeps getting wound up in my clothes, especially jeans. That's not going to help with wear and tear on my clothes. Nope the ball has been retired because of inefficiency and problematic.

not with wrinkle guard

I have been using Downy Balls for years and loved them. But, they don't work well with Wrinkle Guard.
