You don't need as much as the directions say

This product works great but I did not follow their directions. I did not want to use their down wash and I thought the recommended amount was excessive. I washed our 4 down jackets in Dreft on the gentle cycle in my HE front loader washing machine. I then added about a third of a bottle of down proof and ran them again on gentle, spinning them a second time on high. I then dried them with 3 tennis balls until they were bone dry. A few nights later, we sat down to eat at a restaurant and my son picked up his glass of water and accidentally dumped it all over himself. Thank goodness he hadn't taken off his treated down jacket yet. It just beaded and ran right off. The jacket was as dry as when he walked in! Good stuff, but don't waste it by following their directions. If you have a top loader, you may need that much but not with an HE front loader.
