Once a month, add a cup of Distilled White Vinegar & 1 Cup of Baking Soda directly into the drum and use HOT water for washing. Then, I add about ½ cup of vinegar into the fabric softener compartment and ½ cup of baking soda into the detergent compartment. Set the wash on “Quick Wash” with HOT water and High Spin Cycle. If the mold situation is really bad,use bleach instead of vinegar and baking soda. But make sure you run a few empty cycles just with hot water before doing a load of wash.
It's time to clean your washing machine! Even if it's not visibly dirty and grungy, this will help clean soap scum and mineral deposits in the pipes and hoses. You just need vinegar, bleach, and two wash cycles!
Vinegar Fruit & Vegetable Wash Prepare a mixture of ca. one part vinegar and ten parts water. Put the fruit into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria on the surface. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft.
