There are thousands of tricks that can solve major problems with the appliances we have at home. In fact, the things we can do with certain products are really amazing. And the most interesting thing is that in many cases they are tips that would not cross our minds. That’s exactly what happens with a solution that most of us have in our bathroom and washing machine. It can really do wonders!
Washing machine: the great solution is in the bathroom!
A washing machine that smells can be a sign of additional problems, such as mold, which is usually concentrated on the rubbers and beyond.
As washing machines have a lot of moisture, they provide the perfect environment for mold to grow over time. Especially in hard-to-reach places like rubbers and gaskets, as they don’t dry properly after a wash cycle.
As you might have discovered by now, if you’ve had to deal with this problem, mold can be difficult to remove from a washing machine, especially if it’s hidden in the rubber of your appliance.
It was exactly this situation that several people came across and who received a tip from experts that worked wonders.
Of course, when they refer to mouthwash, it is something that we immediately question. However the truth is that it does wonders for the washing machine. It ends with mold and also with bacteria!
how to proceed
You can put a glass of mouthwash in the drawer where you put the detergent. Then opt for a hot temperature program of at least 60 degrees or higher and it will kill any bacteria as well as remove unpleasant smells and mildew.
But there is also another powerful washing machine hack.
The second tip appeared in a Facebook group specially dedicated to cleaning and when several people started trying it and saw the results it quickly went viral.
In fact, a user was about to try this trick but had never done it. Having said that, he grabbed a tablet from the dishwasher and placed it in the washing machine. Now after five minutes she looked at the machine and the water was literally brown.
Another person who also tested it found the exact same thing. In fact, afterwards, he even looked at the machine and saw the water turning from gray to very dark.
But this has other effects besides cleaning the drum. It’s just that even the rubber of the machine that sometimes turns black gets a new life.
Note that this must be done at a high temperature. This for the results to be even better.
While some people said they didn’t know this trick, one or another appeared that they even knew and used to use frequently.
But how many times should we do this?
You should use this trick to clean your washing machine every three months. In some, six out of six may be sufficient. It all depends on how often you use the washing machine.
And how should I do it?
Place the dishwasher tablet directly into the washing machine drum. Then make a program that takes the machine to 90 degrees and let the cycle run normally. You will see that the differences at the end of the cleaning are surprising.
In terms of configurations, it is true that this varies according to the type of machine, but in the end they end up being similar. The idea here is to do the cycle but not for too long. Even for the issue of energy costs.
That said, you can set up a program that allows the machine to go up to 90 degrees. For example baby clothes. Then just leave two rinses. However, we can also disable centrifugation.
Then just start the program and wait.
When it comes to tablets, we can put them directly in the drum and they will be used without any problem. When it comes to another type of capsules it depends a lot. It’s just that some take some time to dispose of and as such may not be fully used. What can be done in these cases is to dissolve the capsule in hot water and then pour it into the detergent drawer. All remaining steps are the same.
