I have included links to some great products that I have bought on my own to make my life easier. You can buy them too through my online sales links.
Washing Machine Cleaner?? I have looked into it before and even found some on ->Amazon, however, the prices scared me off!! I was so excited when I found a frugal recipe on Money Saving Michele that was worth trying!!! I already use White Vinegar to de-smell my towels. Living in Washington we deal with a ton of mildew in the bathrooms and it builds up fast in bath towels.
I have noticed a smell in our washer recently normally I can run a load of hot water sometimes with a touch of bleach. However even with more bleach the last time it wasn’t enough to clear it up. However, this time around it wasn’t enough to clear up the smell from the washing machine.
2 Cups of White Vinegar
2 Tablespoon of Dawn Dishsoap
Mix together in a bowl or measuring bowl (I used a Pyrex Measuring Cup)
Pour into an empty washing machine and turn on a cycle of hot water and pour it in!
*I was concerned with bubble getting to be too big but it wasn’t an issue the washer ran right through with no overflowing bubbles*
I plan to do this once every two weeks to keep my washer smelling great! I may even try a scented dish soap to spice it up some!
