Gosh this is a brill invention! My 18 month old normal front loading washing machine stopped taking the softener and this seemed the easiest option to address my need for softener in my wash after cleaning didn’t solve my problem.
Despite my scepticism it works great! My washing is soft and smells nice again.
It wasn't made obvious that this is for top loading washers only-only after receiving the item I could see it on the label but this is very small in the picture for the item online so easily missed; it should be made obvious under the product details. I now wish to return the item and Amazonia says this isn't eligible for return, very disappointed.
This product arrived broken and I am unable to return it. Very disappointed with my water money.
I was very excited to use this product as my washing machine does not have a fabric softener compartment. Once the product arrived I filled it to the fill line and it came out of the load completely full- the softener did not release. When I went to release the suction after the load to dump the unused softener the parts of the ball completely fell apart. The “plug” and stick are stuck inside the ball.
VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT. WAS NOT EVEN ABLE TO USE IT ONCE AND IT IS NOT ELIGABLE FOR RETURNS ON AMAZON.
A very useful product to have if you own a washing machine with no softner dispenser. I came across this product when I was looking up something on the internet. Anf I was glad to find it on Amazon.
One thing I found missing were any demo videos to show how it is use. I had to buy one and figure out the use. Hence adding a demo video of the the product. I hope you find it useful.
It has markings on the sides to show how much you of the softner you will need for different sizes of the loads.
The product holds the softner in it till the machine starts with the rinse cycle. And then slowing dispenses it. Just fill it in, pull the plug to the top, and throw it in the washer with all your clothes.
I have found it extremely useful. If you are looking for a fabric softener dispenser, this is the product for you. Go for it, you'll love it too!
The ones I had (4) are more than 10 years old but 2 of them started not to open, so I decided to buy these, which by the way I found too expensive, but they are so good, I have always used these balls to soften my clothes and The softener I use with them is Gain and they have worked for me all that time, very well I do not see myself washing without throwing my balls in the washing machines.
Item was to show up on November 9th got it by October 22nd. Today I decided to do laundry and use my new Downy Ball. To our excitement it WORKS just as it says it is to work. I am so happy with this purchase. It is saving me time trying to figure out when to put the softener in and also can now measure out how much to use. I do not have to wait around HOPING to catch the rinse cycle on time I can just relax and let it do it's thing. I own a small portable washer so wondered if the Downy Ball would work in it as it. Turns out it works wonderfully. I highly recommend this product. Is 1st day using it so do not know how long will last yet but here's hoping for a long life span on it.
When I saw that the price of this downy ball had fallen I jumped at the chance to give it a go and it's really awesome.
I work nights and this makes it a lot easier to do laundry, instead of having to stop the washer half way through the cycle to pour in softener I just pour whatever amount of softer into the dispenser. The built-in dispenser in the top-loader gets clogged and is just a pain to use, this makes really easy.
My washer does not have a fabric softener dispenser and I find this product wonderful. I have used it for many years and they work well. It was available in canada at one time (I had them at least 10 yrs ago) in many stores. But, they were much cheaper and unfortunately can't find them any longer.
Saves from having to run when the rinse cycle is coming.
