SHAREABLE Tip #12 – Cleaning Tips For Your Laundry Machine

It’s Spring time and everything gets cleaned – except the washing machine! Everyone uses their washing machine but how often do we clean it? Sure you can leave the door open to air it out after each use but if there are kids around, you might want to find another alternative.

I too was searching for a better way to clean my washing machine and came across these two tips.

Cleaning Tips For Your Laundry Machine

To get rid of unpleasant odours in your washing machine, give it a good clean once a month.
To get rid of detergent residue, run empty washer on normal load at the hottest cycle, with two cups of bleach in the detergent compartment. Next, run on the hottest cycle with two cups of white vinegar in the detergent compartment.
In between times, try adding a little baking soda to your wash. This will not only help to eliminate stubborn odours from your washing, it will give your machine a freshness boost, too
An alternative eco-friendly method:
Add a baking soda mixture of 1/4 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup water to the detergent compartment of your machine and pour 2 cups of vinegar into the drum. Set your washer to normal load at the hottest water setting.
Close the door and start the machine, letting it do all the hard work for you. The baking soda and vinegar naturally break up mineral deposits and any mold growth while cleaning and refreshing your washing machine.
