Wash The Washing Machine? That's Right!

Wash The Washing Machine? That's Right!

If an appliance is designed to keep something else clean, it probably keeps itself clean while it's at it, right? Wrong!

Believe it or not, cleaning appliances like washing machines and dishwashers do need to be regularly cleaned.

You rely on your washing machine heavily, and it works hard daily, so taking the extra steps to keep it clean ensures it operates at maximum efficiency to provide clean clothes that smell fresh. By regularly cleaning your machine, you also extend its lifespan.

Washing Machines: Why Cleaning Is A Must

With every wash, laundry detergent leaves residue behind, and if you don't clean your washing machine regularly, it creates a thin layer of film in the washing drum. This residue is built up from chemicals and debris, which naturally attracts bacteria and mould and holds onto nasty odours.

Your washing machine is a breeding ground for bacteria. Even if you use a chemical-free laundry detergent, washing machines are hot and humid, and mould, mildew, and bacteria love that environment.

Get into the habit of cleaning your washing machine (inside and out) at least once a month so your whites are always bright.

It couldn't be easier to use; pour the sachet into the detergent drawer and run it (empty) on the longest, hottest cycle your washing machine offers. You can stick with a 60-wash if you don't need to worry about hair dissolving.

  • Thanks for this! I have to continually take out a filter from my machine because I have dog fur over everything. I couldn’t work out how to access those behind the scenes pieces.
