Something I am asked a lot is "how do I stop the mould buildup in my washing machine? So I thought I'd give you my best tips for preventing that buildup. Let me know in the comments if you have any more...but keep it natural 🌿
Clean the seal with a damp cloth every week to stop dirt and mould buildup.
Remove drawer and clean once a month with Castile soap and warm water. If you use detergent and softener, this may need doing more often.
Empty filter. Use tray and put hose in tray to catch water. Take filter out and wash.
Leave the door and drawer open after a wash until dry inside.
If you use an eco egg, take it out between washes too.
Run machine on its hottest wash once a month. Mould and bacteria can build up in the washing machine so this is a great way to counteract that.
And if you really need a cure. Try these tips:
Run on hottest wash while empty once a month, to stop any buildup and stop smells and germs. Or put 1 cup of white vinegar in detergent drawer and run on hottest wash.
Remove drawer and clean with white vinegar and water. Once drawer removed, don't forget to get inside the drawer section as this is where the mould can build up.
