9 Washing Machine Cleaners That’ll Keep Your Appliances Spotless and Stink-Free
If you’re anything like me, your January consists of one thing: deep cleaning. Once the holidays are over, I get into a serious cleaning groove where I’m determined to tackle every nook and cranny of my home — a tradition that began ever since I started following Apartment Therapy’s annual January Cure program years ago. And one thing I always make sure to take care of at the beginning of the year is appliance maintenance.
While I do my best to keep up with my appliances year-round, the new year always inspires me to show them a little extra love, whether that means giving my oven a thorough scouring or making sure my dishwasher’s filter is free of debris. Another piece I always hit? My washing machine. Every so often, these workhorses need a good cleaning (I opt for a monthly wash) and the easiest way to do it is with a good ol’ washing machine cleaner.
