A Quick and Easy Tip to Keep Your Laundry Drawer Clean

A great tip to revitalize your washing machine drawer: getting rid of mold

Social media is always buzzing with clever ideas that capture the attention of internet users. Among these ideas, one video stood out – a young woman sharing her genius method for cleaning the drawer of her washing machine. Surprisingly, many people, including herself, were unaware that the detergent drawer was removable. She exclaimed, “How could I have ignored the fact that this drawer was removable?” After investigating, she discovered a small button that allowed her to completely remove the drawer. And to her dismay, she found mold and dirt hidden behind it.

How to Maintain Your Washing Machine

If you want to keep your washing machine in top shape, here are some simple tips to follow:

1. High Temperature Vacuum Program:
Pour 1 liter of white vinegar into the drum and run a vacuum program at 90°C to disinfect the tank and eliminate bacteria. Repeat this process twice a year.

2. Cleaning the Drum:
To eliminate bad odors, clean the inside of the drum, the seal, and the door with a cloth soaked in white vinegar. White vinegar not only gets rid of odors but also restores freshness to your washing machine.

3. Drying the Drum:
After each wash, remember to leave the door open to allow the drum to dry properly.

How to Eliminate Bad Odors from Your Washing Machine

In addition to the above tips, there are a few more things you should keep in mind:

  • Clean the laundry drawer at least once a week to remove any excess detergent that can become smelly over time.
  • Be cautious of the self-cleaning function on your machine. While many devices offer this feature to eliminate bacteria by heating the drum to 70°C, it may not always give the desired result.

Remember to leave the machine door open after each wash cycle to allow proper ventilation and prevent the growth of bacteria. Also, wiping the door seal after each wash will help prevent stagnant water from causing bad odors. Use a clean cloth for this task.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your washing machine drawer clean and free from mold, ensuring that your laundry comes out fresh and smelling great every time.
