clean washing machine

Although we use our washing machines to clean our clothes, the machine itself can start to get dirty.

This can happen because of something we washed in the machine, which requires us to then clean out (or even disinfect) the machine.

This dirt and grime, and often odor, can also occur from a build up and growth of mold, mildew, or other bacteria, as well as hard water and laundry detergent build up.

Please share your tips below for cleaning both the inside of your washing machine, and also any other part of it that needed it.

Be sure to say whether you were cleaning a front or top loading machine, since this can make a difference in cleaning techniques.
