Cleaning up the end of year ... Clean Front Load Washer

Since it's closing out this year time I figure I better clean up things around the house.  I've been wanting to clean my front loader washer. It's a great machine but I've noticed it gets smelly and I have to wipe down the inside and make sure water is dry before closing it up.  I have found that inside the fold of the seal it can get mold .. yuck!!  So I went to research and found a easy and non chemical way to clean my front loader on PopSugar


What you Need:
  • 2 cups vinegar
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Scrub sponge
  1. Start by mixing together the baking soda and water in a small bowl. This is going to be the "detergent" for cleaning the washing machine. Pour the vinegar into a measuring cup and head over to your washing machine.
  2. Add the baking soda mixture to the detergent container of your machine and pour the vinegar into the drum. Set your washer to normal load at the hottest water setting. Close the door and start the machine, letting it do all the hard work for you. The baking soda and vinegar naturally break up mineral deposits and any mold growth while cleaning and refreshing your washing machine.
  3. Use a clean scrubber to rub around the opening of the washing machine, removing stubborn mold or residue. Wipe clean with fresh water.
  4. Your washing machine is sparkling clean and ready to do a load of laundry! Give your front-loader a cleaning once a month to keep your clothes smelling fresh and your machine working in tip-top condition.

Start the new year off with a clean washer, and do this once a month!
