Front-loading washing machines are energy efficient and they use much less detergent than top-loaders, and they are the most popular machines in Britain. But they sometimes have a tendency to gather mold and unpleasant smells. By giving your washing machine a quick clean once a month, you'll keep your front-loader fresh, which means cleaner clothes, too. This eco-friendly method doesn't use chemicals, costs only pennies to make, and comes together with ingredients you already have in your cabert.
A sponge scourer
2 cups vinegar
1/4 cup bicarbonate of soda
1/4 cup water
Mix together the bicarbonate of soda and water in a small bowl. You will make the "detergent" for cleaning the washing machine. Pour the vinegar into a measuring cup.
Add the bicarbonate of soda mixture to the detergent container of your machine. Put the vinegar into the drum. Set your washing machine to normal load at 90’ or 95’ degrees. Start the machine. The baking soda and vinegar naturally break up mineral deposits and any mould growth while cleaning and refreshing your washing machine.
Use a clean scouring sponge to rub around the opening of the washing machine, removing stubborn mold or residue. Wipe clean with fresh water.
Try to give it a clean once a month to keep working in tip-top condition.
Once you're finished with your washing machine, take a few minutes to clean your tumble dryer too!
