Hey guys something was brought to my attention through Facebook, it’s of hell a lot of people are using basically absolutely everything and anything to clean the washing machines they’ve got, I’m honestly really finding it irritating at this point simply it’s because people are using lemons and toothpaste to clean the seal on a front loading washing machine, and now they’re scrubbing the inside of the drum not the outside that actually gets dirty but on the inside that gets clothes,🙄 What happened to the good old days of powder in hot water

Looks like the typical clickbait-y bull💩 you see on social media these days.

Seems to me from reading other discussion boards is that many people will do every wonky thing they can conjure up to combat The Stink other than changing their bad laundry habits.

Logixx Yeah, I’m honestly kind of sick and tired of seeing

All this crap, because it seems like people who don’t know what they’re doing are trying to either sound like what they’re doing is good or they’re just trying to show “hey look what I can do!” Then they mix a bunch of chemicals and create chlorine gas

This is why washers should be hardwired for either hot or warm washes followed by a warm rinse. All the machines I own are usually only used with hot or warm, never have any issues with things not coming cleaned or a odor from the machine itself.

I wonder how it’s possible to have it set up

adam-aussie-vac's profile picture
To modify a machine to have automatically warm rinses, without having to mess around with Super complicated stuff, although for a moment I did think about having the rinses be selectable in between hot warm and cold using the fuel temperature setting for the wash, but I don’t think hot wash hot rinse would do all that good

people too stupid

Some people are just too stupid to be doing laundry. It's bad enough that people overstuff their machines without sorting, and now we have this. SMH!

warm or hot water...never cold or at least RARELY cold... I don't even use a lot of product... Washing powder...a little fab softener...white vinegar and LCB only with whites and even that is a small amount...

I don't use clean washer cycles either..

I do wonder though.. I live in a house with AC and I keep the temp down to 72F (sometimes even 70F)... Lots of people leave their T stat way up there in the summer, like 78. I noticed one time I turned my AC up really high for like a week and mold started growing on the tile in the shower..Not to mention the fact that I couldn't stand the temp being that that experiment didn't last long..

I think some of it has to do with bad washing habits but it also could be climate control

About the temp... We like it really cold.. so in the summer we keep the temp low but in the winter we keep the heat WAY I guess it evens out.

back to the subject...

It really is ANNOYING that people don't care about their laundry, but the same with their machines.

Yeah, it’s honestly really surprising well actually not

Really all that’s apprising, I mean hell my mum always uses the quick cycle with 1 Costco pack of detergent Which also includes a single rinse :/ as I’m actually expecting there to be some leftover detergent from all that and she does it in cold too, While with me I like my Washers how I like my showers, hot and honestly I think she’s missing out on quite a lot when she does that style of wash

These cleaning videos should fall under the "Everybody's So Creative" umbrella and be watched with the same amount of disbelief.

OMGLOL that was actually hilarious

adam-aussie-vac's profile picture
It almost kinda makes me wonder should I do something similar when it comes to seeing washing machine videos on Facebook Just a little reaction in my opinion and how it should probably be done

lazy laundry habits

And yet people wonder why their clothes come out dingy and dirty and stinky. It's because of their stupid lazy laundry habits. Most people don't give a crap about their laundry. This includes college students, and others who go to a laundromat. It doesn't surprise me whatsoever. I'm done, off my soapbox. Like I said, I've seen people shove everything into 1 washer and wonder why their clothes look like crap. Are we really that stupid? I don't think so. My parents wouldn't let that slide. This is why I separate everything.

Someone has done a parody song mashup on her YT cooking comedy.

Facebook is clickbait like no other.
