How do I clean my washing machine?

Here’s where we turn to our friend vinegar again!  Run the wash cycle with no clothes in it and add two cups of vinegar to hot water.  Then take a paper towel and wipe the inside of the machine to pick up any grime that you just loosened.

Remove the fabric softener receptacle and soak it in hot water and detergent. Clean the bleach dispenser with a spray cleaner and paper towels and Q-tips. Don’t forget to clean the top rim of the wash bucket as it is up and under where it can’t usually be seen easily and becomes quite soiled. Run the washer empty on a hot cycle one more time.

Once you’ve soaked the fabric softener receptacle, replace it and polish up the outside of your washing machine with glass cleaner and paper towels. Your washing machine now looks better and will run better as well!
