It's time to clean your washing machine! Even if it's not visibly dirty and grungy, this will help clean soap scum and mineral deposits in the pipes and hoses. You just need vinegar, bleach, and two wash cycles!
Why Your Washing Machine Smells, and How to Clean It
The Pinterest Project: DIY Front Loader Washing Machine Cleaner Use about 2 c. of white vinegar, split between the detergent dispenser of your machine and the rest into the basin. Turn the washing machine on to the "clean washer" setting. After that is done, sprinkle about 1/2 c. baking soda in the basin and run a regular wash cycle with hot water.
Homemade washing machine cleaner -cup of baking soda w Lemon Young Living Essential Oil in the drum (I use about ten drops) - 1/2 cup of peroxide, 1/2 cup of vinegar, and Purification essential oil where the liquid goes (I have a top HE loader) -run on clean washer setting -enjoy a clean, wonderful smelling washer! I repeat about once a month.
Brilliant!! Pinning this to remember it when I need it! (this is part of a month long series of easy, practical, everyday tips we can all use!) This works. I have even poured it right into the empty washer and run a light cycle.
