How to Clean Your Washing Machine

It's weird to think about cleaning the thing that cleans your clothes, but cleaning your washing machine can make it work better, and last longer. Cleaning your washing machine every few months can help get rid of excess dirt, soap gunk, and other things that may be invading your laundry.

Heres what you'll need to clean your washing machine:
White Vinegar
Baking Soda

Microfiber Cloth

1). Fill the washing machine using the highest load size, hottest water setting, and longest wash.

2. Open the lid and as the washing machine tub fills, add a quart of white vinegar.

3. Next, add a cup of baking soda.
Close the lid and allow the washer to agitate for about a minute. Open the lid again and stop the washing machine. Allow the water, vinegar, and baking soda to soak in the washer tub for an hour.

5. After an hour, close the lid and allow the cycle to complete.

6. Repeat. 

Run one more hot wash with a quart of vinegar in it to clean away any residue loosened and left behind by the first cycle.

7. Once the washing machine has drained, wipe the inside of the tub with a vinegar solution to remove any last residue.
Enjoy your freshly cleaned washing machine!
