Your washing machine needs fairly regular deep cleaning. This may sound counter-intuitive, since it’s the machine that DOES the cleaning after all…
You may have asked yourself how to deep clean your washing machine, and why it’s necessary! Due to the nature of the laundry we wash (think diapers, cleaning cloths, underwear), the washing machine can, in fact, harbour some dodgy bacteria!
How often should I clean my washing machine?
According to the experts, it’s a good idea to deep clean your washing machine at least once every couple of months. If you have a larger family, you may need to look at doing it even more often.
So how exactly can I deep clean my machine?
Fortunately, deep cleaning your washing machine is actually really simple!
- First use a cloth and disinfectant to wipe out the drawer, drum and the door seals. You can also use plain white vinegar as it helps get rid of the residue left by fabric softeners and washing powder.
