So I came across "How to Clean Your Washing Machine" on the internets last week and thought, "hmm, I wonder if my washing machine is dirty?"
Grody, gross, gross GROSS!!!!
So I quickly checked out the directions and got busy.
It's an easy 2-step process.
1. Set the washer on a medium size HOT load. Add 2 cups vinegar. The original directions said to let it sit for an hour for each step, but since this was
an intervention a spur of the moment cleansing, I didn't have time for that. While the washer was steamy from the hot water, I used a towel to wipe the upper edges and lid.
2. Run a second medium size HOT load. Add 2 cups bleach. I ran one more "rinse" cycle to be sure the bleach was gone.
That's it! Here's the result:
Yes, there are still some stains around the base of the agitator, but we have hard/well water so there's not much I can do about that. Besides, I have a few more "stains" on my own body than I did 13 years ago. ;)
