How to Clean Your Washer


Wouldn’t it be nice to have a self cleaning house?  Maybe our kids will have that some day (I bet there will an app for that lol)

Well, maybe my whole house can’t be self clean, but I love that my Whirlpool Duet Washer has a “clean cycle”!  Heck it even let’s me know when it’s time to clean it!

I really depend on my washer and dryer to do a lot of work for me! 

When I have stains, I can look up my stain right on my Duet Washer and it will tell me how to treat it, then I toss it in and let the Duet do all of the work for me. Sweet!

How to Clean your Washer

I know it sounds strange to clean your washer, since you’re running soap and water thru it every day – but that soap and dirt can build up.  When my Duet sends me the message that it’s time to clean her, all I have to do is toss in an Affresh tablet, set my washer to the clean cycle and let Affresh work it’s magic for an hour while I go watch Vampire Diaries clean the toilets.

You don’t have to have a Duet Washer or even a clean cycle option to clean your washer.  It’s recommended that once a month you remove clothing from the tub, drop in one Affresh tablet, set your machine on normal or clean cycle (if you have one) and select hot water.

The Affresh cleaner helps remove and prevent odor-causing residue build-up that can accumulate in all brands and configurations of washers. The oxygenated bubbling action of Affresh® Power Puck™ tablets penetrates and dissolves unseen residue, providing a more effective cleaning option than bleach alone.

Where to buy Affresh


It’s amazing how after using these tablets the stainless steel barrel inside my washing machine is so shiny! Proving to me that the detergent and fabric softener can and does build up. So,  if it is building up on my machine, imagine what it’s doing to our clothes?  I can’t imagine NOT using the Affresh tablets in my washer!

Now, if could just find a self cleaning toilet…………..
