Yes, You Really Need To Wash Your Washing Machine

Smelly washing machine? Here’s what’s lingering in your washing machine, and how to stop it from coming back.


A smelly washing machine is not clean

Your washing machine may seem like a clean place, but it’s actually a bacteria breeding ground. When you wash a load of very dirty laundry, like kitchen towels, sweaty workout clothes, undergarments, or soiled baby clothes, they transfer bacteria to your machine. This bacteria lingers and multiplies, causing the familiar, unwelcome stink you’ve been trying to cover up with heavy laundry scents.

Fact is, your ‘clean’ clothes are not that clean after all.

Bacteria from your dirty laundry lingers and thrives in a damp washing machine.

HEX keeps your washing machine clean

How To Wash a Washing Machine
With HEX Performance Advanced Laundry Detergent, cleaning your washing machine is as easy as doing a load of laundry.

HEX is different from detergents you’re used to. It actually inhibits the spread of odors. We don’t mask stink with fragrances, we clean it. Inspired by modern fabrics and lifestyles, we realized that it’s time for something new in the laundry aisle.

HOW TO WASH A SMELLY WASHING MACHINE
  1. Wipe the outside of the washing machine with a fresh cloth, hot water, and an all purpose cleaner
  2. Run a small load of laundry with HEX Performance Advanced Laundry Detergent
  3. Leave the machine door open between loads of laundry to allow the machine to dry fully
  4. Continue doing laundry as usual, with HEX Performance. Unlike regular detergents, HEX resists microbial odor development.

HEX is an entirely new approach to cleaning laundry. With this detergent, the difference is clear.
