Washing machines are a real miracle. You put your dirty clothes inside, some detergent, press the button and after few hours you have clean clothes. Wow! Well, that’s great, but did you know that you also have to wash your washing machine from time to time?
It is not complicated at all! You will only need a white vinegar and a baking soda. We all have that in our kitchen cabinets.
So, just follow these simple instructions:
Fill the washer with water using the highest load size, hottest water setting and longest wash.
Open the lid and as the washer tub fills, add a quart of white vinegar and a cup of baking soda.
Close the lid and allow the washer to agitate for about a minute.
After waiting a minute, open the lid and allow the water, vinegar and baking soda to soak in the washer tub for an hour.
After an hour, close the lid and allow the cycle to complete.
Run one more wash with a quart of vinegar in it to clean away any residue left behind by the first cycle.
