Content Editor / March 14 2019
A cleaning-mad mum has revealed a quick, cheap and easy way to clean dirty washing machines using common household items.
The woman shared her tip on a cleaning group on Facebook, saying all you need to use are four ingredients: washing-up liquid, an old toothbrush, bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar.
She explained how she rinsed the drawer in household washing-up liquid, then used an old toothbrush to ensure every corner was scrubbed.
Next, she wiped away some of the loosened grime, then used a combination of bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar to remove odours and smells from the drawer.
Lastly, she gave it a spray with a mould and mildew spray and soaked it in hot water before running the machine on a hot wash to remove any last traces of dirt.
Yay, no more mould or dirt on clothes! Many members in the group said they were keen to give it a go.
“Wow, great job,” wrote one woman. 'Mine looks like your before photo. On my list to do this week.”
Another added: “I didn't even realise the inside, where the drawer goes, got like this!”
Would you give this a go?
