New Year – Clean Washing Machine!
Did you ever wonder about whether or not your washing machine needs to be cleaned?
Well, your Two Chums did and came up with this answer, thanks to Yahoo Shine!
Yes, of course your washing machine needs to be cleaned and here is how you do it. (This is for top loading washing machines.)
• 1 quart of bleach (many tutorials went without the bleach step, if you’re concerned about using harsh agents in your laundry)
• 1 quart of white vinegar
Fill the empty washer with hot water, as if you’re doing a large load of laundry. Add the quart of bleach, and let the full machine run for one minute to mix up the bleach with the water. Open the top of the machine and let it sit, all bleach-y and full, for an hour. At the end of the hour, shut the cover and let the machine run a complete cycle.
When it’s done, start again. This time, when you fill the washer with hot water, add the quart of white vinegar to the water and down the bleach channel and let the machine run for a minute to agitate the water and vinegar. After that minute, open the top of the machine and again, let the hot water sit in the basin for an hour before you let the cycle complete.
Not only does the process make the room smell fresh, but the inside of the basin will feel so smooth and clean, like after you exfoliate your face, no longer rough to the touch with the hard water spots and soap build-ups. It also only takes about 2 hours and less than $3.
Cleanliness is ……….GREAT!
