How to Prevent Odors in Your Washing Machine

Did you recently pick up a new washer from your local appliance store? If so, then you may be wondering how to keep it in great condition long-term. One excellent way to achieve this is to keep it smelling fresh, and there are several things that you can do to help prevent odors from developing in your washing machine.

Over time, soap scum can build up inside your washer and act like a magnet for debris, lint, and anything else floating around in the water. Over time, this accumulation can harbor odors and give your washing machine an unpleasant smell. First, keep the gasket clean if you own a front-loading washer. Next, rinse off the filter to remove any debris. Finally, add ¼ cup water and ¼ cup baking soda to the detergent dispenser before pouring 2 cups of white vinegar into the drum and running a cycle on hot to give your washing machine a thorough cleaning.
