Try putting a dishwashing tablet in your washing machine and see what happens!

We use our washing machines and dishwashers so often that we tend to take their automatic cleaning powers for granted. We believe that since these appliances are made to wipe away grime, they can’t possibly get dirty themselves. But you might have noticed that your machine isn’t getting things as clean as it used to… 

Do you ever clean your washing machine? Many people don’t, but it’s actually very important as it prevents a lot of problems. Experts advise to run a load with one or two dishwashing tablets once a month. Set the machine at 90 degrees celsius for the best results. This prevents nasty smells and rinses the machine, which prevents clogging. This trick is especially useful for machines of 5 years and older, because it can prolong the machine’s lifespan quite a bit.

We’ve also got a bonus tip for you for washing new clothes. Put the new clothes in cold water overnight before washing them the next day. This makes sure they won’t change color or shrink!
