Let's face it: we know that a washing machine will "look after itself" and clean itself. Especially Vestel washing machines have perfect cleaning system to protect you from bacterias and viruses, including from Covid with special features. Yet, all washing machines need maintaining and cleaning still. The inside of the washing machine gets dirty for various reasons such as the dirt accumulating in it over time, the dirty water remaining in some parts even though we can't see it, or keeping wet laundry in the machine for a long time. If the washing machine is not cleaned properly, this can cause even the laundry to smell bad. Therefore cleaning and maintaining the washing machine is quite necessary. Today, we'll show you 5 easy ways to do that.

  1. Clean the door of the washing machine

Make sure to clean the washing machine's door with a little vinegar or a damp cloth.

Cleaning the washing machine is vital because it collects particles of clothing, various textiles, food, or materials. However, don't use a hard brush or other cleaning supplies since it will scratch and harm the door surface.

  1. Clean the soft part of the door with a brush

The soft / rubber part of the door can be easily cleaned with a brush. This will easily remove dirt, excess particles, and grease from the laundry.

  1. Vinegar should be used to disinfect the inside

To do this, fill the space allocated for liquid detergent with a glass and a half of vinegar and put the washing machine (without clothes) on the cleaning or any hot mode. Vinegar will sanitize the internal parts and will quickly remove any residual soap or detergent particles.

  1. For optimal cleaning, add soda to the case

Put 1/3 cup of baking soda in the detergent area and turn on the washing machine in hot mode. It effectively fights detergent and clothing residues. But Keep in Mind!  When vinegar and soda are drunk together, they neutralize each other. Instead, use soda one month and vinegar the next, or vice versa.

  1. Clean the detergent drawer with hot water and soap

Pull out or completely remove the washing machine detergent drawer. All Vestel models’ detergent drawers are completely removable, which makes it easier to clean them. Leave it in soapy hot water for a while. Then thoroughly brush it until it’s completely clean and finally rinse it.

It’s this easy to have your washing machine looking as fresh as new.
