Washing Machine Cleaning Recipe

1 quart white vinegar

1 cup baking soda

20 drops eucalyptus oil

This recipe is for a non-HE top-loading washer.  Gather all of your supplies and head to your washing machine. For settings, (I know they all are a little different, so you can choose something similar) choose the largest water filling setting, hot water, an extra rinse cycle, and heavy soiled. I then chose the regular wash cycle setting to wash with.  Pour all of your ingredients into your wash and let it work away.

If you happen to have a washer in need of a major cleaning you might want to let the water fill up with your ingredients, but then keep the lid open for 15-20 minutes so it can soak first before it starts the actual wash cycle. You may need to do this cleaning process a couple of times if your washer is in bad shape, but no worries! It’s simple, non-toxic, and will leave you with a sparkly clean washer.
