Homemade Ice Melt

by Dale Yalanovsky
Using a homemade ice melt or deicing formula can be a better idea than a purchased deicer simply because it saves money--the basic ingredients are available nearly everywhere. Virtually any homemade formula will work as well as the commercially available kinds.

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.
