Like every other machine, your washing machine as well needs to be cleaned occasionally.
So, if you notice dark stains between its rubber rings, or these stains appear in the washing powder section, or your clothes start to smell bad after being washed, it is high time to clean it.
Apart from the worse quality of the washing process, when in this condition, your washing machine contains a harmful fungus which leads to numerous diseases.
Mold normally appears in conditions of high humidity and heat, which makes the bathroom an ideal place for the growth of fungal spores, which can easily spread through air and nest on different surfaces.
Here’s how to get rid of fungus in your washing machine:
What you need:
– some liquid cleaning detergent (preferably containing chlorine)
– a sponge
– 25 gr salt of lemon or potassium hydrogen oxalate
Wipe the inside part of the washing machine using some tissues, to eliminate the dirt deposits. Next, apply the cleaning detergent evenly over the rubber rings. Then, leave it to act for several hours and close the door of the machine.
Afterwards, turn the ‘rinse’ program on. Add the salt of lemon in the section for the washing powder and set the washing machine to the highest temperature, and turn it on.
In the end, your washing machine will look like new. If necessary, repeat the procedure in a month in order to completely get rid of the mold.
Last, but not least, always leave the door of your washing machine open after a wash cycle. This will also prevent bacteria and mold proliferation.
The results will amaze you! Your washing machine will shine like new!
