Pinterest Pin Test: deep cleaning your washer

Yet again, I am all for easy cleaning solutions where no elbow grease is required for successful results. I found this pin really by happen-stance and since we've only had apartment washers that have been in them for years if not decades, thought that this would be ideal to clean them from now on when we move in.

 Here's where I found a great explanation of the how-to which was quite short making it even better.

1. Fill washer with hot water and add 1 qt. of Chlorine Bleach
2. Let agitate and cycle
3. Fill washer with hot water and add 1 qt. of Vinegar
4. Let agitate and cycle

How easy is that?! Love it! Honestly, to see how gross the water was before it drained was NASTY. Anyone who moves into an apartment should definitely do this, and than everyone should do it yearly at least if not more.

Happy Maniac Monday, clean away!

Funny that you just did this because I literally just got back from the grocery store and had bought extra bleach specifically to do this! Glad to know it really does work, we'll see how it goes on mine.
