How to get rid of mold in the washing machine: an inexpensive method

What to clean the washing machine from mold

There are several reasons why your washing machine can develop mold. The most common ones are a lack of proper ventilation and failure to clean it regularly.

Most often, mold grows under the seal in the front of the washing machine. The Express publication shared how to quickly get rid of the fungus.

On the social network Facebook, the page "Tips from Mrs. Hinch" (real name Sophie Hinchliffe) shares effective life hacks on how to clean a washing machine from mold.

Users advised trying white vinegar. You should moisten a cloth with vinegar and place it in a rubber seal. It is better to leave the cloth for several hours or overnight. Then turn on the machine for a hot wash with half a cup of vinegar. "This should stop any mold," wrote Alison Whiteman on social media.

It is also recommended to leave the door open after use to allow the water to dry completely.

In addition to cleaning the seal, it is necessary to regularly clean the drawers and drum of the washing machine.

Mia Powell suggested using vinegar together with baking soda. Mix the baking soda and vinegar into a paste, put the mixture in the drum or seal, and wash the stained areas thoroughly.

You can add a little scented disinfectant to help eliminate unpleasant odors in the machine.

It's also a good idea to treat your washing machine with a mold remover spray. You can buy it at supermarkets and specialty stores. Mold is best cleaned with an old toothbrush, but be careful not to scratch the surface.
