Easy Hacks For Cleaning Your Washing Machine
Cleaning your washing machine not only makes sure your laundry comes out clean and fresh but ensures your machine is working properly and will be less at risk of breaking down.
As well as making sure you do your laundry properly, you should be cleaning your machine monthly, but many people put it off and only perform a deep clean once a year. We have four simple steps to make sure your washing machine and your laundry is spotless!
The first step is to empty the drain pump and clean the filters. This can be done by removing the filter, and scrub it with an old toothbrush under running water to remove any build-up of debris and grime.
Next, remove the detergent drawer and trays where you would put the washing powder or liquid, and wash them with dish detergent in the sink.
The final step is to spray the inside of the washing machine with a solution of white vinegar and a few drops of peppermint or tee tree oil, as well as wiping down all the rubber seals.
One final tip is to then add a cup of white vinegar into the dispenser and runtime machine on its hottest setting to flush out any remaining germs and bacteria that are lurking in your machine.
By performing these steps once a month you’ll make your washing machine and your clothes last longer.
