How to clean laundry machines

Washing machine

  • Wipe the outsides with an all-purpose cleaner
  • Get into the nooks and crannies of the washing machine's insides with a cloth and cleaner (and an old toothbrush, if needed).
  • You may need to put some extra elbow grease into cleaning a front-loader.

Pro Tip: Use HEX Advanced Laundry Detergent to tackle machine odors caused by mildew. HEX keeps your machine fresh because it doesn't leave a residue.

  • Wipe the outsides with an all-purpose cleaner
  • Wash the lint trap with water and a few drops of dish soap. Use a vaccuum hose to get any remaining lint out of the dryer vent.

Pro Tip: Ditch fabric softener and dryer sheets, and you won't get as much product buildup on the dryer lint trap!

Deep clean the rest of the laundry room

  • Pull the machines away from the wall and use a long vaccuum attachment to pick up lint.
  • Wash the floor, then take rugs outside to shake. Throw the rugs in the wash if they are machine washable, or give them a good spray with HEX Spray & Go.
  • Wipe down walls and windows. Check air vents for built-up gunk
  • Have you ever cleaned your ironing board? Probably not! But you can easily use HEX Spray & Go to clean an ironing board once a year (rather than placing your fresh clean clothing items on a dirty board).
