where to buy I love my downy ball as I hang all my laundry and forget to put the downy in. I have lost my ball and cant find them in stores :( October 26, 2014
Downey Ball Fabric Softener Dispenser I have used this in my laundry for many years, I recently moved into a condo that has three washers in the laundry room. It's so convenient being able to do all of my wash at once, including linen. My problem is; I only have one downey ball, my roommate is moving soon, and we both want more..... where are they? I want three more, as mine is old and won't last forever, and my roommate wants a couple too! Where can I get one? If you are not making them anymore, please reconsider taking them out of your production line. I would hate to have to use something else! July 28, 2014

Usage and Instructions

How to Use

All you have to do to enjoy the convenience of our Downy Ball is pour the Downy fabric softener of your choice up to the right fill line in your Downy bottle cap, seal it, and drop it in at the start of the wash on top of your fabrics.

How it works

The Downy Ball time-releases Downy automatically.  So your clothes feel the wonders of your favorite Downy fabric softener and you feel more carefree.

During the wash cycle, the Downy Ball floats on top of the water. Just before the rinse cycle begins, the washer's spinning motion opens the Downy Ball automatically releasing the fabric softener in the rinse cycle.

Measuring Instructions

1. Fill the ball to the appropriate line for the Downy fabric softener of your choice
2. Pull the ring tightly to close the lid
3. Drop the ball in at the start of the wash

Please note: the Downy Ball should not be used in HE machines.
