I started with running a vinegar cycle and then I sprayed it down with a Homemade Everything Cleaner I made. This is my concoction and you may FREELY use it. I don't need any credit for a recipe. *Wink*
My Clean Everything Cleaner
3 TBL of Borax
1 Cup of Vinegar
2 TBL of Dr. Bonner's Lavender Soap or whatever you have on hand
I take the Borax funnel in bottle then fill the bottle a little with warm water and swirl around borax to dissolve then put the vinegar and soap. I then fill the rest up with cool water slowly to keep from suds forming. After that I shake it and then get to spraying.
After I sprayed the washer down (make sure you get those crevices and such) I let it sit for about 30 minutes. I took a scrubbing pad, tooth brush, baking soda and got to scrubbing all the crevices and hidden areas of the wash machine. I then wiped it all down and ran another vinegar cycle. I sprayed it down once more and gave it a good wipe down in and outside of it and dried it all off.
Sparkle and clean. I will do a gentle wipe down weekly and this deeper cleaning monthly. The wash machines can harbor all kinds of yucky and bacteria. If it is cleaning my clothes I want it to be kept up as fresh and clean as possible.
I then went through all the piles of paper and etc. and straightened up the counter area. I use this for our Home Center to catch bills, paper, and do some office work as needed.
Do you clean your washer and dryer on a regular basis? What do you use??? Please share!!!
