If your washing machine has started to wash badly and there are dark stains or rust on your laundry, first check the tray in which you pour detergent and rinse. Maybe it’s time you cleaned it.
There is a misconception that the tray should not be contaminated as it is receiving water that washes away detergent. Actually, that’s not really true.
After the washing process has been completed, the tray must be removed and wiped. If you do not see any dirt on it, just leave it open so that it can dry and be ventilated.
Some hostesses use acetic acid or acetone to clean the tray. But, these two methods have a big disadvantage. Acetic acid smells bad and it’s hard to get rid of that smell. And acetone can damage the plastic, and the tray will become unusable.
Today, we will tell you about one very effective and safe means. It’s hydrogen peroxide. With its help, you can easily clean even the oldest dirt and restore the plastic to its original color.
You will need:
50 milliliters 3% hydrogen peroxide
60 grams of soda
Method of use:
Pour peroxide into the plastic bottle, add soda, grated soap and mix well to get a foamy mass. Remove the tray and put it in a bowl. Then, using a toothbrush, distribute the mixture evenly over the tray and let it stand like this for half an hour. This procedure is repeated every 5-10 minutes.
After the prescribed time, wipe the tray with a damp sponge. Hard to reach places we clean with a brush.
The dirt can be cleaned very easily. Dry the clean tray and insert it back into the washing machine.
As a result, the machine will do its job one order of magnitude better and the tray for detergent will appear as new.
