DIY Washing Machine Cleaning Powder
Does your washing machine stink? Citric acid is the magic bullet!
Yield: 1 cleaning
Remove any clothes, debris, or pet hair from your washing machine.
Add 1 cup of citric acid powder directly to your washing machine basin (this works for both top loader and front loader machines).
Use the hottest water setting on your machine.
Run one wash cycle on your machine. (A short cycle is fine as long as it runs for at least 20 minutes).
That's it! You may use your machine as usual now.
- Repeat monthly or as needed to prevent buildup and odor in your washing machine.
- If you notice your clothes get smelly or there is a musty odor in your washing machine, it's time to do another cleaning.
