Q: Why do I need to use a fabric softener on top of my detergent?
A: Downy provides to your clothes long lasting freshness that lasts until you wear them, all day long. Additionally, there are a number of reasons why it is beneficial to use a fabric softener alongside your detergent: it makes fabrics feel soft and gentle to the skin as the fibers in your clothes move more freely, it significantly prevents against clothes aging and protects their shape and colors, and it makes them easier to iron.
Q: How does Downy work?
A: Downy fabric softener deposits perfume oils on textile fibers which, like a fragrance, will provide long-lasting freshness to your clothes. But also it softens and helps preserving your clothes wash after wash: it goes on the textile fiberts to keep them smooth, reducing the friction between them and on the skin. As fabrics slide on each other more freely, clothes are more supple and show less wear over time, especially for heavily stressed parts such as collars, elbows and cuffs.
Q: How do I use Downy in an automatic washing machine?
A: When adding your detergent to your washing machine drawer, you also add Downy to the fabric softener compartment in the washing machine drawer. You start your washing machine as usual and the washing machine will automatically add Downy to your laundry during the last rinse. After the wash you hang your clothes for drying as usual. Now you can enjoy the great freshness and softness of Downy.
Q: How do I use Downy in a semi- automatic washing machine?

You add the clothes to the rinsing water and you keep it soaking for 5 minutes. Wring or spin your cloths as usual and hang them drying. Now you can enjoy the great freshness and softness of Downy.
Q: How do I use Downy after hand washing?
