HOW TO CLEAN YOUR WASHING MACHINE

Regularly cleaning your washing machine is essential for maintaining its performance and ensuring that your laundry comes out fresh and clean every time. By following these simple steps and using basic household supplies, you can keep your washing machine in top condition for years to come

Cleaning your washing machine is essential for maintaining its efficiency and prolonging its lifespan. Over time, dirt, detergent residue, and hard water deposits can build up inside the machine, leading to unpleasant odors and reduced cleaning performance. By regularly cleaning your washing machine, you can ensure that your laundry comes out fresh and clean every time. Here’s a simple guide on how to clean your washing machine effectively.

Supplies and Accessories Required:

  1. White vinegar
  2. Baking soda
  3. Microfiber cloth or sponge
  4. Toothbrush
  5. Hot water
  6. Cleaning gloves

The Cleaning Process:

Step 1: Preparation Before you begin cleaning your washing machine, make sure to unplug it from the power source. This is essential for your safety.

Step 2: Clean the Dispenser Drawer Start by removing the detergent dispenser drawer from the washing machine. Wash it thoroughly with warm soapy water to remove any detergent residue or mold buildup. You can use a toothbrush to scrub away stubborn grime. Once clean, rinse the drawer with water and allow it to dry completely before reinserting it into the machine.

Step 3: Clean the Drum Next, it’s time to clean the drum of the washing machine. Fill the drum with hot water and add one cup of white vinegar. Vinegar is an excellent natural cleaner that helps dissolve mineral deposits and disinfect the machine. Run a complete wash cycle using the hottest water setting available.

Step 4: Clean the Seals and Gaskets While the washing machine is running, take a microfiber cloth or sponge dampened with vinegar and wipe down the rubber seals and gaskets around the door. These areas are prone to mold and mildew growth, so make sure to thoroughly clean them to prevent odors.

Step 5: Deodorize with Baking Soda Once the wash cycle is complete, sprinkle half a cup of baking soda into the drum of the washing machine. Baking soda is a natural deodorizer that helps neutralize odors. Run another wash cycle on the hottest water setting to distribute the baking soda and rinse away any remaining vinegar residue.

Step 6: Wipe Down the Exterior While the interior of the washing machine is being cleaned, take the time to wipe down the exterior surfaces with a damp cloth. Pay special attention to any controls, buttons, and handles, as these areas can harbor dirt and grime.

Step 7: Dry Thoroughly After completing the cleaning process, leave the door of the washing machine open to allow air circulation and prevent mold growth. Wipe down any remaining moisture with a clean, dry cloth.
