Are you supposed to wash your washing machine?
- Linda Hoang, Blogger & Social Media Specialist
"Yes, it is a good idea to do this every couple of months -for both washing machines and dishwashers.
You can use a specific washing machine cleaner, a vinegar and water solution 1/4 - 3/4 blend, or CLR. We have extremely hard water in Edmonton and hard water impacts the life span of washing machines and dishwashers. If a water softener isn't an appliance in the household CLR is a good choice as it breaks down the calcium build up. New machines actually have a clean cycle as part of the cycle options."
