How to Clean the Washing Machine?

We throw our dirty laundry into the washing machine and expect it to be clean and have a fresh scent when it comes out. But how can we keep our washing machine clean and smell fresh?

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 10 minutes


Washing machines are usually made of the same material. The best way to clean this material is a clean cloth and a multi-purpose cleaner or dish soap. With these two ingredients, you can gently wipe the outside of your washing machine. You may notice that your laundry detergent forms a layer in some parts and accumulates. To clean these areas, a little warm water and a cleaning sponge will be sufficient. You can use a piece of cotton for the edges and corners, and you can also clean these areas.


Spilled detergents should be cleaned as soon as possible. If you wait, it will be much more difficult to remove these stains and accumulation. If one of the laundry you washed left a residue close to the solid, it is best to remove all the laundry inside and wipe the inside of your washing machine with a clean cloth.

3-Avoiding Odor or Getting Rid of Odor

To prevent your washing machine from creating odors, instead of closing the door after washing your laundry, you should leave the door open so that the inside of the machine dries. If an odor has occurred, you can start your machine while it is empty by putting baking soda and vinegar in a warm degree. It is very important to leave the door open between every washing session for the washing machines that are at the front of the loading section. You should also remember that you need to wipe the plastic parts on the edges of the cover of the machine. In these parts, hair or similar dirt and dirt can form, which causes odor. Wiping your washing machine roughly after each wash will prevent odors and mold.
