    Works great!

    This works great! My washer's despenser gets so gooey and caked-on with liquid softener, so this really makes the wash much cleaner.

    Used to own several of these. Stopped using them when I had a washing machine in my apartment. Now that I have to go over to the laundryroom again, the automatic dispenser is the perfect answer. They are very hard to find and I was thrilled that drugstore.com carried them and at such a great price.

      Comments about Downy Automatic Dosing Dispenser, 1 ea:

      This is my 3rd dispenser. I had one in the past and then purchased a washer that had a built in dispenser. After I found out that the washer dispenser didn't do so well, I had wished that I had the Downy Ball Dispenser back so now I have two. One I use and one I have on the shelf just in case I have to replace this one at some point. :) They work great.

        Vinegar is superior to fabric softener. Same results without making your white turn yellow. Interestingly Downy is manufacturing it for an unintended competitor.

            I can't believe I went so long without having one of these, especially given how low-priced they are. Definitely would recommend to anyone who uses fabric softener.

              I bought the Downy ball as a replacement at my summer home. Since the softener dispenser in my washing machine is defunct, the Downy ball works great!

                If you have a front-loader, these balls are great for a using a vinegar rinse (for less color bleeding, among other uses). The softener dispenser in front-loader machines is too small for vinegar. I use 2 balls per large load and fill them with white vinegar. If I'm washing delicates, I put the filled balls in a mesh bag so nothing gets snagged.

                  I have been stalking this Downy ball in stores for years. I finally made it to 2013 and decided to look online and Drugstore made my day. I love this thing! It's so easy and your towels will come out refreshed and softer. Everything will smell delectable and it will not leave stains since it is in a ball. Just drop it in and forget about it!

                    I was having a lot of trouble with clogs in my HE washing machine fabric softener dispenser. Diluting the fabric softener did not help all that much and I thought I was going to have to stop using fabric softener all together. Then I discovered this Downy Ball, and problem solved. You just put some fabric softener in the ball & throw right in the wash. In a pinch, I sometimes dilute about a tsp of hair conditioner in about 1/4 cup of hot water in the Downy Ball (I like to add some essential oils for added fragrance), and this softens clothes too. I love my Downy Ball!
