Spin Cycle Success: Mastering Washing Machine Cleaning Like a Laundry Pro

Ah, the trusty washing machine. It diligently cleans our clothes week after week, but have you ever stopped to think about how much it deserves a little TLC itself? Cleaning your washing machine might not be high on your list of priorities, but it’s essential for maintaining its efficiency and longevity. Plus, a clean machine ensures your clothes come out smelling fresh and looking their best every time. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and dive into the ultimate guide on how to clean your washing machine like a laundry pro.

First things first, gather your supplies. You’ll need white vinegar, baking soda, Jumbo Microfiber Cloth, an old toothbrush, and some hot water. Once you have everything on hand, it’s time to get started.

Begin by cleaning the exterior of your washing machine. Wipe down the control panel, knobs, and any other surfaces with a damp microfiber cloth. For stubborn stains or grime buildup, dip the cloth in a mixture of water and mild detergent. Don’t forget to clean behind the machine and underneath it as well.

Next, it’s time to tackle the inside of the washing machine. Start by running a hot water cycle with two cups of white vinegar. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and will help dissolve any soap scum or mineral deposits inside the machine. Once the cycle is complete, wipe down the interior with a damp cloth to remove any loosened residue.

Now, it’s time to freshen things up with baking soda. Sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda inside the drum of the washing machine. Then, using an old toothbrush, scrub around the door seal and any hard-to-reach areas where mold or mildew may be lurking. Baking soda is great for eliminating odors and deodorizing the machine.

After scrubbing with baking soda, run another hot water cycle to rinse out the drum and remove any remaining residue. You can also add a few drops of essential oil, such as lavender or tea tree oil, to the water for a refreshing scent.

Once the cycle is complete, wipe down the inside of the machine again with a damp cloth to ensure it’s thoroughly clean. Pay special attention to the detergent dispenser and any filters or lint traps that may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Finally, don’t forget about the exterior of the machine. Give it one last wipe down with a clean, damp Wowables® to remove any remaining vinegar or baking soda residue.

And there you have it – your washing machine is now sparkling clean and ready to tackle your laundry with renewed vigor. By following these simple steps on a regular basis, you can keep your washing machine running smoothly and ensure your clothes come out looking and smelling their best every time. So go ahead, give your trusty appliance the love and attention it deserves, and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you’re a laundry pro.
