Recently our washing machine has been smelling funny, even though we use no chemicals to wash our clothes with. I just could not understand were the horrible smell was coming from after all soap nuts have no smell and when you wash your clothes you would think the washing machine would self clean. But after alot of research I found this is not true you still need to clean your machine every now again weather you use shop bought washing powder or use a eco washing products, to clear dirt build up or lime scale in your machine.
In fact giving your washing machine a clean is really easy, only needs doing every three months or so and in doing this helps keep the life of your washing machine last longer.
3 cups white vinegar
1 cup baking soda
20 drops of eucalyptus aromatherapy oil
Add all the ingredients into the soap section of your washing machine soap draw.
Make sure your washing machine is set to its highest temperature, extra rinse cycle and heavy solid setting.
Turn your washing machine on and walk away.
Once the washing machine has completed all it’s cycle, your washing machine is nice and clean ready for you to wash your next load of clothes.
Who would have known it’s as simple as that to keep your washing machine clean and working to its full potential? Not me that’s for sure but now I do and we now have no more nasty smells and a very clean washing machine.
Do you give your washing machine a wash? How often do you wash your washing machine?
