Regular cleaning of almost everything in our house is a must for preventing diseases caused by germs and bacteria. Well, there are some places- nooks and corners in our home can are as avoided as they can be. And, these become a problem for people suffering from allergies and asthma. Well, a number of life hacks are available on the Internet that makes our lives easier in many ways.
But, wait, have you ever got a solution to clean your washing machine of those molds and unpleasant smell? Here we are, filling that gap for you. Use only two ingredients to shake off all the colonies the germs have built up in your washing machine.
Do your clothes smell even more pathetic after cleaning than they actually did before? Then, your washing machine has developed black stains on the rubber rings or the powder compartment.
There is moisture, warmth and bacteria from your clothes. So, the mold sets up a camp in your machine, and thrives happily. To prevent this from happening (since prevention is better than cure), use no more than 1 tbsp of detergent, and shun away the myth from your mind that more detergent will lead to better cleaning.
This will actually lead to a lot of air passing inside out and lesser moisture for the mold.
You need the following stuff- a liquid detergent containing chlorine, a sponge, rubber gloves, and 25 grams of salt of lemon or potassium hydrogen oxalate. First of all, wipe the inside of the machine will sponge to clean out any dirt present.
Distribute it evenly and leave the machine for a few hours, with the door closed. Now, set it onthe rinse cycle, and add some salt of lemon or potassium hydrogen oxalate in the detergent compartment, and set it at highest possible.
You've just turned your stinky machine into a brand new one.
Do this every few weeks to keep it that way.
