Go beyond just clean with Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Odor Shield Scent Booster (various). For over half a century, Downy has helped the world's laundry get softer, smell better and experience less static cling, featuring everything from liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets to freshness scent booster beads and targeted odor-fighting formulas. Downy Fresh Protect turbocharges your laundry detergent into an odor-killing powerhouse, with two action motivated-scents that neutralize tough odors and safeguard against new ones for up to 24 hours.

Downy Formulas for Every Laundry Need

Downy has made laundry feel and smell better since 1961 when they launched their ultra-concentrated liquid fabric softener. Downy liquid fabric softener's formulation was twice as powerful as the leading fabric softener, making Downy the leading choice amongst consumers almost instantly. Downy April Fresh fabric softener made clothing smell better and feel softer than other brands, cementing its place as a household staple.

Since the early days, Downy's added several new formulations to address some of the most common laundry concerns, from odor-fighting to long-lasting freshness, including Downy Unstoppables, Downy Infusions and Downy Fresh Protect. Downy Fresh Protect was introduced in 2015 as a deodorant for clothing, neutralizing and eliminating odors with the power of Febreze Odor Defense technology. They feature a unique bead formulation that dissolve gradually during your wash cycle, penetrating each textile down to the very fibers. Downy Fresh Protect April Fresh features the same fantastic fragrance as Downy April Fresh fabric softener, for a classic, soothing scent that's been making America's laundry feel and smell better for nearly six decades.

How do I Use Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Odor Shield Scent Booster?

Most liquid fabric softeners, Downy included, are added during your wash cycle. Downy Fresh Protect beads are added at the beginning of the wash cycle. Unlike liquid fabric softener, you can use tailor how much product you need for your specific laundry needs. Use half a cap for everyday odor protection; for serious safeguarding against stubborn odors, use a full cap.

Once you decide what's best for your laundry, simply measure out your desired amount of scent booster beads into the cap and toss them right into your wash drum before adding clothing, laundry detergent and liquid fabric softener. Downy Fresh Protect April Fresh scent booster beads are also safe for use in all washing machines, including HE and TL machines, for added convenience.
