Maintaining appliances clean is very crucial for their lifespan and performance. It is also important for the overall clean state of your house, right?
You shouldn’t neglect appliances especially the ones that make your life easier by helping you clean. Here is exactly how I easily take care of my washing machine!
You need the following:
- A cloth
- Baking soda
- You favourite all-purpose cleaner
These are the steps you can follow:
The first thing you should do is turn your washing machine on the highest possible setting and run it without placing anything inside.
Pour some vinegar where you normally put your laundry detergent which will not only help you clean it but it will also disinfect it which is very crucial since there is a lot of germs inside of your washing machine.
Once the appliance is filled with hot water turn it off and let the water sit for around an hour. Then turn the washing machine back on and let the cycle finish.
Then when the first cycle is completed you can run another one but this time instead of pouring vinegar where you place the laundry detergent – add a cup of baking soda. This will kill any bad smells and will remove the dirt that the vinegar missed.
If you do decide to do that don’t let the water sit for an hour – let the cycle finish as normal.
Focus on the exterior
What I usually do is spray an all-purpose cleaner all over the exterior of my washing machine and then I wipe it with a microfiber cloth.
