~Some good tips for general cleaning of the washer. I always leave the washer door open when I'm done using it so it can dry. When I wash towels, I wipe down the rubber ring before I start the load. I use vinegar in place of fabric softner, so I get double duty since it also helps keep my machine clean. I also drain the overflow and clear that out, it gets a wet version of lint in there.
