“Is your laundry looking dingy? Are you seeing spots before your eyes? To keep your washer spotlessly clean, it is important to remember to give it a once over every six months, or every three months if you have hard water. Is your Dish Washer dingy? See my recipe for Cleaning Your Dishwasher ! From Talking Dirty Laundry with the Queen or Clean, by Linda Cobb”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill your washer with hot water.
  2. Add 1 qt of chlorine bleach (no detergent please!).
  3. Run the washer through the longest wash cycle.
  4. When the washer is still wet- this should be immediately after the bleach cycle- add 1 qt of white vinegar and run the washer through the same cycle again refilling the tub with hot water.
  5. This will clean out soap scum and mineral deposits from the spin basket and also from the hoses.
