How often should you clean your washing machine?

It's recommended to deep clean your washing machine every one to three months in order to minimise the build up of mould and limescale.

But, according to a Dr. Beckmann study last year - less than a quarter (24%) of Brits are doing so and that's despite 84% of us saying we know we should be cleaning it.

Washing machine a bit smelly? You're not alone. In fact, a quarter of Brits say theirs smells when in use and seven in 10 Brits say they've experienced clothes coming out unclean.

So, if you want fresh laundry in 2024, it's probably a good idea to give your washing machine a clean ASAP.

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.

Give your washing machine a deep clean with Dr. Beckmann's top-rated cleaning formula. 

£1 at Amazon

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 £1.

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.
