How to Remove the Stinky Smell From HE Washing Machine

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 lemon 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! You can also use essential oils to remove the sour smell from clothes too!
It is a great way to save money too! No chemicals and works well!

      Hi Edie, if you still need/want Melaleuca it's tea tree oil. You can get it at any health store.

    It helps to always leave the lid of the machine open after every use. I do and have never had the smell. Even the manufacturer recommends this in the manual.

    What I want to know is why it happens in the first place. I am tired of trying to remove the odor from the washer that is suppose to save me money but costs more because I am constantly having to buy stuff to clean the dadgum washer??? This is a catch 22 if I ever heard one.
