A quick and easy tip to keep the laundry drawer always clean
From then on, the comments went well below the video. Everyone wanted to talk about their own experience on this subject. “  I decided to leave the drawer in a solution of warm, soapy water, before applying a stronger cleaning remedy.  ", says someone who was also finally able to remove the drawer from the device.

Another said:  “  To be very honest, I also just found out that it is possible to remove this drawer. I didn't really know how to go about it until then. Now, with a little boiling water, some dishwashing liquid and scrubbing with an old toothbrush, the drawer has become cleaner than ever! »

And there you have it, now you know what you have to do. And besides, you should consider carrying out this cleaning regularly, because it is precisely the residues of detergents and mold that end up developing bad odors which permeate your clothes.

How to clean your washing machine?
High temperature vacuum program: Pour 1 liter of white vinegar into the drum and run a vacuum program at 90°C to disinfect the tank and eliminate bacteria. It is recommended to do this twice a year.
Cleaning the drum: To remove bad odors, clean the inside of the drum, the seal and the door with a cloth soaked in white vinegar. White vinegar will also make your washing machine fresh again.
Drying the Drum: Be sure to leave the door open after each wash to allow proper drying of the drum.
How to get rid of bad smells in the washing machine?
And of course, there is nothing more annoying than smelling that unpleasant musty smell on our laundry right after washing. As said, mold can easily build up inside your washing machine, leading to that strong smell that can quickly harm allergy sufferers. How to get rid of it? First of all, it is important to clean the washing machine from time to time with an effective descaling solution. You can alternate chemicals with homemade remedies, such as a mixture of baking soda and distilled white vinegar. These natural ingredients are excellent for descaling and disinfecting the device. Simply add this solution to the detergent drawer and run an empty program at a temperature of 90°C.

It is also essential not to neglect the following factors:
Clean the detergent drawer
This cleaning is necessary at least once a week to remove any excess detergent that could later become smelly and musty. Beware of the self-cleaning function: many devices have this option to remove bacteria build-up and clean the drum at a temperature of 70°C. But, it does not always offer the expected result.

Leave the door open after the wash cycle
Golden rule: always remember to leave the washing machine door open after washing your clothes, to properly ventilate the drum. If you keep it closed, air won't get in and bacteria will grow from excess moisture inside.

Wipe the door seal after each wash
Speaking of humidity, also make sure to dry the rubber seal on the door. Use a clean cloth to do this after each wash. If you fail to do this, water in the joint can quickly cause bad odors.
