It freshen our clothes but how often do we freshen our washing machine? If you inspect it closely next time you’re about to put in a load, you may be surprised.

Lint and other yucky fibres can get stuck to the inside of the machine, causing odours – thankfully one of the best ways to get rid of it is also one of the simplest.

Just run 1/2 cup of mouthwash through an empty washing machine on a normal rinse cycle! The mouthwash helps to clean and disinfect the machine.

Will you try this tip?

 

    • 1/2 cup? I use vinegar for a lot of cleaning. Can do similar for dryers. Put in a cloth dampened with vinegar and run for approx 15 min

    • Debbie Bryant – what a great suggestion, didn’t know of that one. Supposedly the tablets these days have “rinse aid” in them – but will try this

    • Yep, me too. Much cheaper and very effective in the final rinse to help prevent fading in coloureds.

    • If you used white vinegar as a fabric softener on the last wash each time, you won’t have to do the 3 months cycle wash. I used to do the washing soda wash, until someone told me about using vinegar. Been doing it for 5 years now and my machine it sparkling, no grease gunk!

  1. If the very diluted mouthwash will clean the washing machine – what the hell does it do to my mouth at full strength?

  2. I use vinegar in the rinse cycle instead of fabric conditioner (especially for towels) keeps the clothes fresh and the machine?tubes clean

  3. My towels are the last to go in the wash and I use white vinegar (cheap home brand) as a fabric softener on them and no they don’t smell like fish n chips 😂
    It keeps them soft and cleans the machine at the same time.
    No more gunk in the machine caused by detergents and softeners.
