    Smells glorious

    Laundry can be so boring and tedious and these beads make the experience a little more exciting. I normally use Downy Unstoppables in the Lush fragrance, and it amazing. However, I decided to give this one a try for a change - verdict: I really love this fresh scent! It smells just like you would expect a classic fresh linen scent to smell like. The scent stays around for a long while. My bedding, towels, clothes - it all still smells good. Stuff I haven't worn or used keeps my closet smelling really fresh, too! It is a strong scent, so be mindful of that when pouring in the amount you want. Otherwise, this product really lives up to the promise.

    I Love the Smell!

    Downy fresh protect are small scented little bead like things to help keep your clothes stay fresh and clean all day. Very simple to use I just take a capful of Downy fresh protect in wash odor defense put it in the washer, put in my clothes add detergent and wash. My clothes smell so nice when they are finished.

    This bran is expensive but words good

    I like the perfume scented downy. The smell can last all day when using the clothes. A bit pricey but good quality. My mom have been using it since I was a kid and will definitely gonna use it.

    Why didn't I use this sooner?

    I originally bought this item because I had a coupon for it and I've never tried it before. I also never heard any raves about it from friends or family. I thought is it just a waste of money? They are pretty expensive! The smallest bottle they sell only lasted for a week and a half worth of laundry in my house which is why I rated the value as 2.5 stars/5. But, I am completely impressed with this product! My laundry has never smelled so fresh and clean! It makes my entire laundry room smell fantastic! I compared some of my old laundry w/o the scent booster and new laundry with it and wow! What a difference!!! The old laundry smelled like nothing! I was kind of surprised, I thought the dryer sheets would atleast make my laundry smell like SOMETHING?? But the new laundry was so soft and smelled amazing! I used it on my blankets and sheets for my bed and it makes falling asleep so much easier because it smells so good! I went to go put on a bed sheet I had washed before I bought the scent booster and I smelled it and I ended up re-washing it because I couldn't stand how it smelled kinda gross/old/dirty even though I washed it only a week earlier! I will never go back from these and I tell everyone I can to try these out! I get coupons for this item anyways so it atleast makes it a little bit cheaper! I strongly reccommend. I rate quality and effectiveness 5/5!

    Shop Stink No More!

    As the wife of a self employed auto mechanic and three outdoor kids I was desperate to find something to get the shop / farm stink out of our clothes and this stuff did the trick! I really use only half of the recommended amount and our laundry comes out clean and fresh smelling and stays that way! I also love that you get that fabric softener smell but my microfibre towels still work!!

    First try with Downy Fresh Protect

    I have received so many of these packets lately! The latest was in the "active fresh" scent. Walmart loves to give them as freebies! I usually use a scent free detergent, so I am probably not the best person to give my thoughts on a scent boost for your laundry! We don't have insensitivities but like to go scent free for others. I wanted to give it a try though. I used it on one of our rougher loads (aka work and work out clothes of my husband!) and hoped the scent would be helpful! I have a front loading washer and when the load started, you could just see all the beads making their way to the rim and I totally expected to be cleaning them out after the load was done. Surprisingly, they were no where to be seem! They dissolved just perfectly. The scent was STRONG. Oh boy, so strong. My husband didn't complain later and I didn't notice it on the clothes later on. That was a good sign. They don't smell strongly for long, or maybe even just after the dryer. Wet, though, it was a bit harsh. I don't think I will try them again but you never know. Sometimes you do need something to freshen things up! I enjoyed trying them for the sake of ChickAdvisor research!! :)

    J'ai acheté ce produit à mon supermarché cette semaine et j'ai décidé de l'essayer ce soir. J'aime beaucoup ces petites perles alors je veux essayer toutes les sortes qui existent sur le marché. Concernant celles-ci, j'aime beaucoup l'odeur et leur facilité d'utilisation. On mets la quantité de produit qui nous convient et on apprécie sa merveilleuse odeur sur nos vêtements par la suite. Je recommande.

    Oh my god!!! Shut the front door! This downy door defence is ahh-mazing to use on your bath towels, and bed sheets !! It's leaves both feeling so soft and fresh. The first night after I use it on my sheets I just can't stop smelling them.. :)
    It's for sure going to keep God scent for about 2 weeks !!
