A front load washing machine has the advantage of saving water and electricity, as well as being gentler on your clothes at the same time as providing you with a better clean when compared to your traditional top loader machines.
However, you might open the door to your front-loader one day and be greeted with a foul stench from mildew.
This is due to the way top loaders are designed, which allows water and bacteria to accumulate around in the rubber gasket at the front of the washer.
Worse, the odour might be transferred from the gasket to your clothing.
You might think that a washing machine cleans itself by using all of the detergent and water it receives.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.
All you’ll need is some baking soda and vinegar to get started.
