When using appliances like washing machines and dishwashers — putting soap in and taking clean things out — one can sometimes forget that the appliance itself needs a good cleaning now and then. And goodness, did my top-loading workhorse need it.
STEP 1: THE CLEANSE
Empty your machine. Then, add ½ cup Vinegar, 2 capfuls of Multi-Purpose Cleaner to the machine dispenser, and run your machine with hot water for a long load.
STEP 2: FINAL TOUCH:
Wipe down your fabric softener and bleach dispensers with a wet cloth or by spritzing with Multi-purpose Cleaner.
NOW FOR THE DRYER also known in the Hibbard Household as the IRON 🤣
Gather These Tools:
Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth and Multi-purpose Cleaner
STEP 1: KICK THE LINT
The dryer drum collects lint which can leave pesky fuzz behind on your clean clothing and affect the efficiency of the dryer over time. To beat the fuzz, wipe down the inside of the dryer regularly with a Lint-Free Cleaning Cloth dampened with a mixture of a capful of Multi-purpose cleaner and 1 liter of water.
STEP 2: FREE THE FILTER
Remember to clean the dryer filter after each use as a clogged filter can restrict airflow and reduce your dryer’s performance. It’s also a fire hazard.
We recommend following these steps every month to every other month depending on the usage frequency of your washer and dryer. This will help to keep things extra clean and functioning at its best.
