Cleaning your washing machine is extremely important and it will prevent mold and mildew from growing as well as germs from breeding – and after all, you want to maintain your appliance in the best condition, right?
If you have never cleaned your washing machine then I have news for you – it’s so simple. You don’t need to scrub or wipe for hours, you can let your appliance do all the work for you, the only thing you need are the proper ingredients. And today, I will show you that you can clean and disinfect your washing machine with natural ingredients!
3 Ways To Clean Your Washer And Dryer (Without Scrubbing)
Before we get started, I wanted to tell you something extremely important – always leave the door of your washing machine open after you used it. This is the easiest way to prevent mold and mildew from forming!
– Run A Hot Cycle With Bleach
One of the most effective ways to both clean and disinfect your washing machine is by running the hottest cycle possible with bleach. The appliance needs to be empty and you need to add a cup of bleach where you normally place the laundry detergent.
I recommend doing this if you have never cleaned your appliance or you haven’t done it in a long time.
– You Can Also Use Vinegar
If you don’t feel like using bleach then you can use an alternative – vinegar. It’s still effective and will get the job done.
– Clean The Dryer’s Vent
It’s important to clean the dryer’s vent because a lot of lint and dust get trapped there. Do this by detaching the vent then shaking the tube so all impurities fall out.
