Who knew? Cleaning your washing machine!!!!


Will someone PLEASE tell me that I am not the last one to learn that we are supposed to clean our washing machines????  Seriously, I had no idea!  Yes, I wash the outside of the machine, but I never gave any thought to the inside of it!!  So what's a girl to do?  Yes, GOOGLE THE ANSWER!!  And here's I found...

Throw in dirty clothes, add some detergent, turn a dial and come back later to clean clothes. Ever wonder where all that dirt goes? Most of it rushes away with the drain water; but some lurks in your machine and can cause laundry to appear dull and gray...

Keep reading....and then be sure and tell me if you've ever cleaned your washing machine!!

Interesting! Like you I only clean the outside. I guess I will have to change that. :)

I wish I had know all of this. Especially about the brown spots. I would have brown spots occasionally with my old washer. I thought it was due to us having hard water. Thanks for sharing!

When we moved into our house, we got the washer with the house, and it needed a considerable amount of cleaning (it was quite disgusting). We have a different washer and I have occasionally cleaned out the rim (it's a front loader) but I haven't run bleach through it. I also clean the dispenser from time to time. But overall I do not clean my washer on a regular basis.

I definitely don't do all that! I just bleach my whites and figure that does the trick :) I'll have to check into that website sometime for some other tips!

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day =)

Like you guys, I am doing thesame also but I did a research about washing machine cleaner and I learned that cleaning your washer should not be limited in outside only.
