How To Easily Clean The Washing Machine And Remove Bad Odors

The washing machine has to be cleaned from time to time if you don’t want to see rust stains on your clothes, nor mold and limescale smell. Over time, the washing machine accumulates a lot of dirt that won’t go so easily when you’re washing the laundry. Here’s how to clean your washing machine using some natural and handy ingredients.

You need:

– vinegar
– bleach

You must use these ingredients separately.

Start by mixing a cup of bleach with a cup of warm water. Soften a cloth in the obtained solution and clean the accessible parts of the washing machine, including the interior and the front-load door seal.

Now, start a washing cycle with the highest temperature and add the above solution in the washing machine. Don’t put laundry inside, leave the machine empty.

Add 2 cups of vinegar in the detergent dispenser and start another washing cycle using a high temperature.
Finally, to avoid vinegar or chlorine smell, start a rinsing cycle again. Your washing machine will be like new and those bad odors will vanish.
