Has anyone ever tried the downy fabric softner ball? If so, how did it work for you? Also, can you use other liquid products in the fabric softener ball or just downy fabric softner products?

  • I use it too, and I don't think I have ever used Downy in it lol. I use Snuggle and it works great.

  • I've used it for about five years now. IN fact, I still have the same ball. Yes, you can use any type of fabric softener in it.

  • I use them. I actually have 3 because one always seems to get lost, lol. I love them! I use either Snuggle or Downy fabric softener in them and they work just fine. :)

  • I used them all the time when I did not have my own washer and dryer and had to use the apartment facilities. They work great. I've put Snuggle in there and it's worked. I think the weight of the liquid depend on whether it opens all the way. I've used cheap watery stuff and they did not open right.

  • I use it every day. Sometimes I use Downy, sometimes I use other stuff. If you use something other than Downy, just make sure you are using the right amount - don't go by the line on the ball, go by the measurement that the softener says to use. :)

  • I dont have one but want to get one. I was told you could use any softner in it

  • I have one and love it. I use Downy, Snuggle, or Gain in it, whichever is on sale. They all work fine. It doesn't have to be just Downy.

  • I loved mine and used them all the time until I bought a washer with a fabric softener dispenser built in.

  • I use mine all the time and use whatever fabric softener I have. The brand doesn't matter.
