With the seasons starting to change, taking the time to do a deep clean can be a rewarding task. Cleaning a washing machine is important to ensure it keeps working effectively. Homeowners have explained their easy hack to keep it smelling fresh.
“There’s no self-clean option and I’ve tried 90 temperature wash. I think the system could be clogged up? Any products I could use?”
Homeowners soon shared their favourite tips and tricks by commenting on the post.
To get the washing machine running more efficiently, many suggested running it with bicarbonate of soda.
Posting online, one wrote: “Soda crystals on a hot wash or bicarbonate and vinegar on a hot wash.
“I spray a little vinegar in mine when a wash is finished, seems to keep it fresh.”
Another commented: “A capful of Zoflora in the drawer, some bicarbonate and white vinegar in the drum on a wash should sort it.”
A third agreed, writing: “Mine went smelly. I changed to powder, instead of liquid. Also it’s very hard water so always chuck in soda crystals. Fab.”
Using the product on a washing machine cycle could remove germs and unwanted odours.
Leaving the door open between uses can ensure it is properly ventilated.
This could make a difference to how clean items appear when they have been washed.
They added: “Ensure the kitchen or laundry room is well-ventilated and the washing machine door and drum are left open for a while after use.”
