Hello Dimers,

Found a disturbing video of child having skin infection because of bacteria and germs inside their washing machine

#action=share

I searched both online and offline stores, i could not find the product mentioned “bacbuster washer cleaner” anywhere.

Wanted to know how you clean your washing machines to remove bacteria and germs.

So please suggest the products that you use and the washing machine model if it depends on brand of washing machine.

Never store damp/wet 2Bwashed clothes inside machine
Take out the clothes soon after wash
Keep the door open for sometime-Make sure drum is dry
Self cleaning program must be there – check manual

I heard the similar thing few days ago and ordered washing machine cleaner/descaler from Amazon. Yet to use it. Shall post review after use. If it helps, I ordered afresh descaler powder for Samsung machine.

Yes this should be enough. And what’s the use of washing machine it already cleans clothes from bacteria while washing.
Bacteria infection is caused because your immune response is slow/low otherwise bacteria are everywhere.

run and empty wash use vinegar instead of detergent, after the wash leave machine door open for a day, will solve your problem

Apologies for late response. I used the descaler but didn’t find any difference in machine or wash quality afterwards. Kept an eye during descaler cycle and found no change in water color (no dirty water). So, I think the descaler that I got is useless. Please don’t buy afresh Samsung descaler power. Hope it helps.

I haven’t done this, but can someone try with hot-water with alum (fit-curry)?
