A couple weeks ago, I shared a way to clean your washing machine using all natural ingredients. This week I’d like to expand on that, with a deep cleaning option.
1/2 teaspoon natural dish soap
4 tablespoons washing soda
1 cup white vinegar
20 drops Tea Tree essential oil
Remove the tray dispenser and fully submerge in hot water with natural dish soap. Scrub away any residue with a toothbrush, and replace tray in washer. Put washing soda in the drum. Using the hottest setting on your washer (or the “tub clean” option), run your machine. After the cycle finishes, pour vinegar and essential oil in your liquid dispenser. Run the same cycle again. Wipe out the seal, drum and door with a cloth and let dry completely before doing laundry.
