De-Gross the Washer

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that when you’re washing machine is pulling all the dirt and grime from our clothing, it needs a clean out itself from time-to-time – especially front loading washing machines. Mold and mildew build up inside the rubber gasket, and can harbor quite the smell! A quick blast of steam removes the mildew fast. Pull the gasket forward and be sure to clean in all the nooks and crannies. This task isn’t difficult, but it’s important!  Run and empty cycle with 4 cups vinegar and ½ cup of baking soda with hot water.  Let the washer sit for an hour, then run again with nothing in it on hot water.  Voila! Clean washer ready to suck up more dirt!
