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!

    I use chlorine and bakingsoda.

    i fill up approx 2 cups chlorine and a topped tablespoon of bakingsoda.

    Set the machine on a fast/short cycle.

    it also kills all the germs.
