If you suddenly start to notice that your clothes get a strange odor after washing, and there are black stains between the rubber rings or in the washing powder compartment, it’s time for you to take some action! These black stains are actually dangerous fungus that causes a number of diseases in humans.
Here’s how to get rid of fungus in your washing machine:
– liquid cleaning detergent
– a sponge
– potassium hydrogen oxalate
Wipe the inside of your washing machine with some tissues in order to remove the accumulated dirt. Apply the cleaning agent (with chlorine content) over the entire surface of the rubber ring, distributing evenly.
Close the door and leave for a couple of hours.
After this, set your washing machine on ‘rinse’ program, and turn it on.
Then put some salt of lemon in the detergent compartment and set your washing machine on the highest temperature. Turn it on.
In the end, your washing machine will look like new. If necessary, repeat the procedure in a month in order to completely get rid of the mold.
Last, but not least, always leave the door of your washing machine open after a wash cycle. This will also prevent bacteria and mold proliferation.
