Cleaning Your Washing Machine

Over the past year I'd noticed there was a rim of black around the top of my washing machine. I don't know if it was dirt, grime, or just stained, but it was starting to look pretty bad and embarrassing. I was inspired to clean it after reading this post.

It took a few hours, but here are the steps.

1.  Using a magic eraser, clean the stains around the rim of the washing machine.
2.  Fill the washing machine with HOT water.
3.  Add 4 cups of bleach, allow to agitate for a few minutes, then allow to sit for 1 hour.
4.  Allow the machine to run through it's longest cycle.
5.  Fill the machine with HOT water again immediately.
6.  Add 4 cups of white vinegar and allow to agitate for a few minutes, then allow to sit for 1 hour again.
7.  Run the longest wash cycle again.
8.  Rinse the machine with HOT water for one 1/2 cycle to complete.
  A clean and happy washing machine :o)

  1. OMGoodness! Just imagine what my machine must look like after running for how-many-knows-who years! I'm afraid to even think. Will do this this weekend! Thanks for your wonderful tip. :)
