Do you need to clean your washing machine?


It might seem counterintuitive to clean you washing machine, however there are several reasons why cleaning your washer is an effective way to prevent a build up of germs, limescale and odours. You may have typed into Google ‘easy ways to clean your washing machine’ or ‘can you clean your washing machine with dishwashing tablets’ and don’t worry CHANGE has combined both the ease and convenience of using a tablet cleaner.

Why should you clean your washing machine?

We rely on our washer to clean clothes, towels and linen and so to keep it doing its job we need to do ours. Washing machines can be a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. With leftover laundry detergent, fabric softener and debris combined with minerals from your water it will all eventually build-up and create an environment for bacteria to grow. 

If you have started to notice an unpleasant smell, clothing coming out with strange stains, detergent residue or a build-up of various types of debris (fluff, pet fur, leaves etc) around the seals of your machine, that is a visual cue your washer is in desperate need of a good clean. Not only can this be a sign of mould, but the inner workings of your machine may be blocked. Having a significant effect on the performance of your machine.
