How to Clean your Front Loader Washing Machine


The Clean & Scentsible blog had a great post earlier this year about how to properly clean your front loader washing machine. Many people don't realize that front loaders are more susceptible to germs, mildew and mold than top loaders and require a little more periodic maintenance. 

The rubber gasket is the area that collects the most dirt and mold. To get it clean, our source recommends using bleach. She says to "start by wiping down the whole gasket with a white rag soaked in a 50/50 mixture of bleach and warm water. Make sure you pull back the rubber gasket to clean inside as well. If there is still mold remaining, soak a towel with your bleach mixture, shove it into the gasket, and let it sit for 30 minutes. After soaking, remove the towel and scrub the gasket gently with an old toothbrush. Wipe down the gaskets with a clean dry cloth until no residue remains."
