Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
First and foremost, stop using all liquid detergents. Switch to a powdered HE detergent. The liquid HE detergents build up in the washers drain and sit there and will catch everything. The buildup is due to a lack of rinsing power to effectively move the mass and will become really funky as a result. This buildup will burp and backwash into your washer causing your towels to stink horribly at first and then other clothing. If you're experiencing this and you can smell the funk in your washer when you open it, you can fix this efficiently and on the cheap. Buy citric acid, which comes from fruits and is completely safe for the environment. You can purchase small amounts at your grocery store or check Amazon for bulk, also see the link below. Just use 2 tablespoons and set your machine to the hottest setting and longest cycle. Do this once a week until you don't smell anything in the washer and your laundry. Be sure you switch to the powdered HE detergent as the powered detergents break down more effectively and do not clog your washers drain. http://www.chemistrystore.com/Chemicals_A-F-Citric_Acid.html
