How to clean your washing machine

A washing machine needs regular cleaning due to dirt and constant humidity. This creates a favorable environment for mold and bacterial growth. It is necessary to pay attention to the condition of the device in time to avoid deterioration in the quality of washing and even breakdown.

OBOZ.UA has found an effective life hack that will help you cope with this. If you don't want to buy special chemicals, you can use one natural ingredient.

Lemon

You will need the juice of one lemon or you can replace it with two tablespoons of citric acid. Put two liters of water into the empty drum of the washing machine and add the juice or citric acid. Turn on the washing cycle at a temperature of 90-96 degrees Celsius.

After the cycle is over, wipe the drum and door with a damp cloth to ensure that the appliance is clean and sterile.

This method will help to get rid of mold, dirt and detergent residues. Also, do not forget to wipe the powder compartment.

In a bowl or other container, mix a cup of warm water with the juice of two lemons and 1/2 cup of vinegar. Remove the compartment and soak in the solution for 10-20 minutes.

Then use a cloth or toothbrush to thoroughly remove all dirt and rinse under running water. Wipe again with a dry cloth and put it back into the machine.
