Clean your washing machine. Step 1: Fill the washing machine up and pour in 2 cups of white vineagar.
Let set for 1 hour. I think mine accidentally sat for 2 hours because I got busy doing stuff while Malea was napping. :)
Step 2: Start the washing machine over again and let it run through a complete cycle.
When I drained my washing machine it still had some grime on it so I got a sponge out and scrubbed it down really well. I added straight white vinegar to my sponge and the grime came off pretty easily.
Look at how much better that is!
Step 3: Fill washing machine up again and pour in 2 cups of bleach. (I only used about 1 cup)
Step 4: Let it soak for 1 hour.
While it was soaking I took out a couple of Q-Tips and detailed all the nooks and crannies of my washer. I seriously don't think it has been this clean since my dad bought it 15+ years ago!
I even scrubbed the lid and all of the knobs! Nice and shiny again.
Step 5: Restart washing machine and let it run through a complete cycle.
I have to say I'm pretty happy with the results! Now that I know how easy this is to do I'd recommend (and will be doing it) washing your washing machine at least once a year. I think it's the perfect thing to add to your spring cleaning list!
