We use our washing machines pretty regularly to clean our clothes, but have you ever thought of cleaning the actual washing machine! Many people I know didn’t even consider this, and it prompted me to write this article. I recommend cleaning your washing machine once a month, and here’s how!
First off, just use a clean damp cloth to wipe any dirt/debris from the inside of the washing machine, next keeping washing machine empty run on the longest setting with Hot water and add 1 cup of bleach. When the washer filled completely and ‘agitated’ for a few minutes, turn of and let sit for about 15-20 minutes so ensure the bleach can get its job done! After the washer’s rinse cycle there should be no trace of bleach, but it there is a strong odor remaining pro u would feel more comfortable you can run the washing machine through one more cycle.
If your washing machine has Soap Scum Build Up or Hard Water Stains here what to do and why it is important. Soap can build up on the inside of your washer leaving a residue known as soap scum, and it can actually cause a greying or dulling of your clothes eventually. Also, hard water stains can over time reduce the efficiency and mechanics of the washer. Cleaning every 4-7 weeks, you can avoid the hassle. Again like disinfecting with bleach just run the washer on a long hot setting, this time add 3-4 cups of distilled white vinegar. Again, mid cycle let sit for 15-20 minutes then let washer finish running, and you can of course run the washer one more time f the vinegar smell is overpowering to you.
