An unpleasant odor from freshly washed laundry is the first sign of mold in the machine. However, fungal spores can often multiply without any obvious symptoms. Mold is the cause of a number of illnesses, from allergic reactions to respiratory diseases.

You need to act as soon as possible. Experts tell you how to remove stubborn mold in just 20 minutes.

How to remove mold

Mold can appear between the seals of the washing machine, in the powder containers, in the filters, and even in the drum. The main cause is moisture accumulation. Mold in narrow spaces is often difficult to clean and even to see.

Two effective ingredients can help: white vinegar and dishwashing liquid. Studies have shown that vinegar has the ability to kill more than 80% of mold and prevent its return. So, if you don't want to use chemical cleaners, which are often harmful to your health, try a natural life hack. Available ingredients will be the best solution to achieve sterile and shiny surfaces.

For stubborn stains, it is better to use vinegar together with baking soda. Mix the baking soda and vinegar to a paste, put the mixture in a drum or sealer, and wash the stained areas thoroughly. Add a little scented disinfectant to get rid of odors. You should clean your washing machine thoroughly at least once a month.
