How can you remove the stinky smell from washing machines? A tip for removing the stinky smell from washing machines is to simply add 10 – 15 drops of purify or Melaleuca essential oil on wet wash cloth and wash.
That is ALL you want in the washer and you want to use HOT water/Clean cycle if you have one. You can also add 1 cup of vinegar if you want for additional aid in cleaning the washer.
I did this with Melaleuca and it worked great!
