Frugal hack fail..


Hello again..i have to say that i see lots of hacks for making life easier and some do work.
However i tried this one and it failed.
Frugal hack for cleaning out your  smelly washing machine..Mouthwash.
You pour it in the drum and the dispensers and set it on a regular wash.
Well to be honest i did and wasn't impressed at all.
Yes the machine itself smells minty fresh but when i put a wash on this morning wow the smell almost knocked me out..stagnant water smell. So i will be going back to my old faithful of soda crystals and vinegar.
Maybe it was me or perhaps my machine is just a bit past it and may need a total service.

Have you ever tried a frugal hack that works or didn't?

  1. from time to time i make sure there are no witnesses and chuck a descaler loo block in the washer , the cheap evil ones from poundland direct into the drum, that cures the smell for a fair old while

  2. It mightn't be the best way to clean a washing machine, but I put a small drop of bleach into the dispenser and then put it on a hot wash. Works every time. And when you aren't using the machine, leave the door slightly open. And don't chuck in damp tea towels (as I sometimes do!) to sit there until the next hot wash! I also clean the dishwasher in the same way, put a small drop of bleach into the machine and put on a long wash cycle. I expect, though, if manufacturers read this they'd be pulling their hair out and saying, "No, No! Not bleach!" But it's meant to kill 99% of all known germs, is it not? Not too much otherwise it froths up too much.
