Washers and Dryers can build up a residue composed of things like mold, lint, and mildew. Cleaning washers and dryers can help to ensure your garments are not ruined.

Tips & Tricks

  • One trick is to run a cycle in the washer without any clothes. Adding bleach to the wash with hot water can ensure mold and mildew are removed.
  • Leave the washer door open, to air out and dry after a wash.
  • Wipe down rubber seal on the washer and dryer where build up can occur.
  • Remove lint from the dryer regularly preventing lint on clothes and possibility of fires.
