Expert: You should always put a dishwashing tablet through your washing machine. Always.
‘This is a game changer!’
Contributor, Practical Parenting / January 26 2020
Cleaning your washing machine is one of the new cleaning trends sweeping Australia at the moment.
New products have recently hit the shelves - including Pine O Cleen’s Washing Machine Cleaner, currently on sale at Coles for $4.
But an Aussie mum has revealed her secret to keeping her washing machine - and all you need is a 14 cent dishwashing tablet.
Sharing her tip on the Mums Who Clean Facebook group, mum Jess reveals how an expert gave her advice on how to clean her machine after a recent repair.
Says Jess: ‘Just had the best tip from a washing machine technician after fixing my pump (had a 5c piece jamming it). He asked if I had a dishwashing tablet, he said he just throws that in the drum once a fortnight and run the tub clean cycle.
‘I had just started buying the Laundry Magic Washing Machine Cleaner Sachets, it will be much cheaper using a dish washer tablet!’
Love it! And with some dishwashing tablets costing just 14 cents, that sure is a more economical clean!
The tip got the big thumbs up from other mums on the page.
‘This is a game changer,’ said one. Added another: ‘My service man told me the same thing 😄’
Said a third: ‘This is FANTASTIC!’
Added one more: ‘I’m going to do this tomorrow. Thank you!’
Watch: Clean hard cooked on stains using dirt!
