Re: Warning-Stupid Question Alert!

I had to have my washing machine tub replaced because of rust. When the guy came out to fix it, he, of course, took it apart. I thought that, first, I would puke and then die of embarrasement!! It was so nasty. Buildup of hair and lint and God only knows what else. Yuk!!! So, I asked him if he would mind if I scrubbed it while he had it apart. Thankfully, he said okay!! He told me the best thing to do was to clean your machine once a month by running a full hot load and add a cup of bleach. He also said that fabric softner makes the buildup way worse. And it can make your washer stink once the buildup occurs. I don't use fabric softner that much--definitely not in my diapers--but sometimes in my towels. No more!!! I mean, seriously ya'll, that was gross!

By the way, he told me that everyone's washing machine is nasty. He's met people who clean their floors with toothbrushes but have a disgusting washer. That made me feel a little bit better. Not much though.....
