My washing machine lives a very hard working life. My previous machine lasted me 9 years and over 10,000 washes, so when I got my new Hotpoint washing machine almost 2 years ago, I knew I wanted to look after it as best I can.
I regularly use Dr Beckmann Service-it Washing Machine Cleaner to keep my machine whiff-free and happy - in fact, I'm quite proud to say for once mine looked much cleaner than the one in the advert!
Dr Beckmann suggest that you clean your machine once every 30 washes or 2 months, whichever is sooner, to prevent build-up of bacteria, mold, limescale and dirt. I do a couple of loads each day, but I'll be honest and admit I haven't cleaned mine since before Christmas. We have no limescale here, but what we do have is very soft water which deposits peat and stains everything brown...
It's super easy to use the Service-it Cleaner - just 3 steps:
1. Remove the drawer and soak in around 50ml solution and 4 litres of water for 30 minutes.
2. Use a little solution on a cloth to wipe door seals.
3. When the drawer is done, put it back into the washing machine. Pour the rest of the solution into the cleaned drawer and set the machine running an empty washload at 60°.
It really couldn't be simpler, and takes only a few minutes of your time - you don't even need to get your hands dirty. It's like cheating. It's almost as easy as cleaning your dishwasher - which I did on camera this time last year..
If your washing machine really is in need of a good clean, or has an aroma which isn't at all pleasant, Dr Beckmann Service-it Deep Clean will even go beyond the regular Service-it...
Dr Beckmann Service-it Washing Machine Cleaner costs a mere £2.99, as does the Service-it Deep Clean, and a call out alone can be as much as £140 - so it really can save you a lot of money. Not to mention the time-saved by not having to re-wash clothes or stay home for an engineer...
