Why we rate it

Suitable for all washing machines and claiming to remove 99.99% of bacteria, viruses and fungi (which can lead to nasty odours), this clever product cleans deep inside your washing machine, getting rid of the nasties and leaving a fresh, lemony fragrance behind.

It also removes smells caused by detergent residue, or even from washing at low temperatures and using incorrect laundry detergent dosages.

Need more convincing? It won an award from the Good Housekeeping Institute 'For a Deep Hygienic Clean'. Not bad for less than £2.

How does it work?

Keeping your washing machine sparkling clean is easy with this budget-friendly product.

The activated carbon ingredient attracts particles like a magnet – so it can absorb and neutralise any build-up of dirt or gunk.

Simply pour the powder into your empty washing machine drum and put it on a wash cycle at a minimum of 60 degrees for one hour, without running a pre-wash cycle or any fabric detergents.

Once the cycle is finished, you can use your squeaky clean machine as normal – it's that simple. It's recommended for use every two months, or after 30 washes.

Another bonus is that by using this product, you'll also help extend the lifespan of your washing machine.

What the reviews say

With over 7,800 five-star reviews, this bargain buy is a firm favourite with Amazon shoppers because of its cleaning power and efficacy in removing unpleasant smells.

"Absolutely recommend it," said one reviewer, after finding the product got rid of a terrible stench their washing machine had had for six years.

One reviewer also said that their clothes looked and smelt "considerably cleaner" after one use of this Dr Beckmann product.

With more glowing reviews saying things like "brilliant product"; "sorted my problem"; "excellent"; "would highly recommend", it's clear this is an affordable must-have well worth adding to your cleaning kit.
