The Cost-Free Tip For Ridding Your Washing Machine of Those Nasty Smells

You’re in the checkout lane at the grocery store when it hits you……you forgot to take the clothes out of the washer last night. Images of your beautiful new bed sheets pressed up against the stainless steel drum of the washing machine, damp and festering, play in your head. After you battle the traffic back home, you’re now faced with rewashing everything in the washing machine, but worse……the machine itself now reeks. Worry not. One grandmother, who has done a lot of laundry in her time, has revealed a cleaning hack that keeps her washer spotless, and smelling as good as new. All you need is a lemon and some toothpaste. Just cut the lemon in half, remove the seeds, and spread a tablespoon of toothpaste on each half. Then, place the lemons in the washer and run it on speed wash at the hottest temperature. It’s a cheap solution to a common problem.
