How To Disinfect Your Washing Machine Naturally

Here we show you two natural ways of how to disinfect and clean the machine that washes your clothes and bed linens.

1. White Vinegar And Baking Soda

The white vinegar will disinfect the machine and it’ll help you remove any mold that has accumulated inside it. Also, the acid in the vinegar will remove any residue from the washing detergent and fabric softener.

If there are unpleasant smells coming from your machine, then the baking soda will help you solve this problem. Put one cup of white vinegar, one cup of baking soda and one cup of hot water in the detergent compartment. Then, turn on the machine on rinse cycle, without any clothes in it. Et voilà, you’re done with the cleaning!

2. Lemon Juice

If you have problems with rust and unpleasant smell, then this is the right solution for you. What you should do is add two glasses of squeezed lemon juice in the detergent compartment and turn on the machine at the highest temperature. When the cycle is finished, repeat the same washing cycle, but now without the lemon juice. In this way, you will clean your washing machine of all impurities, including rust.
