How to disinfect your washing machine

Cleaning and disinfecting your washing machine is an important part of maintaining a healthy and hygienic home. Over time, washing machines can accumulate dirt, grime, and bacteria, which can lead to unpleasant odors and potentially cause health problems. By regularly disinfecting your washing machine, you can keep it clean and free of harmful bacteria.

To disinfect your washing machine, start by running an empty load on the hottest setting, using a high-quality washing machine cleaner. This will help to remove any dirt and grime that has built up inside the machine.

Next, use a soft cloth or sponge to wipe down the exterior of the machine, paying special attention to the control panel, the door seal, and any other areas that come into contact with dirty laundry. Use a mild detergent and warm water to clean these areas, and be sure to dry them thoroughly to prevent water damage.

After cleaning the exterior of the machine, use a soft brush or cloth to clean the inside of the drum. Gently scrub the inside of the drum to remove any dirt or grime, and use a toothbrush to clean any hard-to-reach areas. Once you have cleaned the inside of the drum, use a disinfectant spray or wipe to kill any remaining bacteria.

Finally, run another empty load on the hottest setting to rinse away any remaining cleaning solution and disinfectant. Once the cycle is complete, leave the door of the washing machine open
