[March, 2012 UPDATE] – I noticed that since I’ve been using this homemade powder laundry detergent, my washing machine does not get mildew-y as fast. I read that liquid detergent coats the surface and makes it attract more lint and mildew. May be that’s the reason but since I’ve been using the powder detergent, my washing machine hasn’t been as dirty or mildew-y. More reason why I love my homemade powder detergent formula!
CLEAN every 3 months!!! A front-loading washing machine that won't drain may need nothing more than a simple filter cleaning- did this with my sis-in-law's washer the other day. Except that once it gets too full it can start leaking as well. Watch out!
