How to Clean and Maintain a Smelly Front Loading Washing Machine
Once a month, I add a cup of Distilled White Vinegar and a cup of baking soda during the HOT cleaning cycle. I pour them directly into the drum. Then, I add about ½ cup of vinegar and ½ cup of baking soda into the detergent dispenser.
Homemade Drain Cleaner and Declogger (baking soda + vinegar): Pour 1/4 cup baking soda into the drain. Slowly pour in 1/2 cup vinegar. Continue alternating baking soda and vinegar until vinegar drains quickly. Follow with a few cups of boiling water.
De-tarnish ALL your silver ALL at once... line your sink with aluminum foil, add 1/2 c table salt, 1/2 c. baking soda, fill with hot water, then dump in all your silver! Let sit for about 30 min. The tarnish all transfers to the foil! Thanks, Susan Branch!
