Check out these 4 amazing tips to reduce your washing machine odors
1. Clean Regularly
We’ll get the obvious tip out of the way first. While it may seem kind of funny for the uninitiated, your washing machine needs to be cleaned from time to time to maintain the best results. So no, your clothes cleaning cycle will not help and won’t clean your machine in the way that this sort of thing matters.
Wash Warriors’ washing machine cleaning tablets are a good start for this and can provide the right kind of cleaning for your machine to protect your device from buildup as well as your future loads of clothing.
In short, clean out the washing machine regularly for the best results.
2. Read The Instructions
Always read the instructions before washing your clothes. Sure, it sounds simple, but the reality is that every washing machine has a different approach to cleaning and can have certain quirks that could lead to potential build-ups.
If your washing machine has a different program for delicate materials or heavy clothing, then be sure to figure out what works best before starting your next load.
3. Take a Load Off
Here is another tip that often sounds strange on the surface but makes sense when you think about it; avoid washing too many clothes together.
Simply put, the more clothes you wash at one time, the less washing powder and water can circulate around them. Unfortunately, this leaves clothes with a stale smell that is often a sign of your detergent or washing powder being unable to do its job adequately.
If your detergent has problems cleaning your larger loads, then the potential for odor-causing bacteria to grow in your washing machine multiplies!
4. Proper Wiping
What many washing machine owners forget to consider when cleaning or maintaining their machine is the seal. The seal of your door is arguably the primary defense for excess moisture in your machine. Unfortunately, however, this also means that your seal is the most exposed to the evils that humidity can bring.
Thankfully, this can all be avoided by simply wiping your seal between every complete cleaning cycle. This helps reduce a moisture build-up in your machine and the potentially smelly odors that can occur as a result.
