Despite my best efforts to keep the washer door open for it to dry between loads and avoid getting that musty smell, my washer was developing an odor. I considered buying one of those expensive options from the store. Then I found the following:
- Pour 2 cups vinegar into the machine
- Run it for 3 minutes on hot
- Stop the machine (pause the load)
- Let it sit overnight
- The next morning, resume the cycle
- Run a rinse cycle on cold
I do this process on the first of the month.
