I’ve posted before about how my washing machine gets a funky smell sometimes, even on the rare occasion that I remember to clean out the filter. So what’s the deal? Well, I recently learned that in HE washers, the smell most often comes from using too much detergent!
Housewife How To’s has a great post about how to clean your washer & get rid of the smell, but how do you keep it from coming back? One tip: use all mighty pacs!
The detergent that I use most often is all free clear, as it’s perfect for Shane & me since we have very sensitive skin. But I admit- I never know how much detergent to use, so I tend to fill it to the “Max” line as I kind of thought you couldn’t get clothing too clean. So I was thrilled when I learned that all now sells their free clear detergent in a convenient might pac: a pre-measured detergent tab, similar to the ones you may use in your dishwasher, that contains just the right amount of detergent!
They’re SO easy to use- all you have to do is put them in the drum, and then add your clothes on top! If you’re doing a regular-sized load of laundry, you just need 1, and if you have a large or heavily soiled load, you should use 2. That’s seriously all there is to it! They are safe for all washers &the detergent dissolves completely in all water temperatures, so you can use them with all types of laundry.
The all mighty pacs are available in both original & free clear formulas, and come in 24, 48, 72 & 84 load packages.
Please note that these should be kept out of reach of children & animals as they can be mistaken for food.
What chore do you wish would get simplified next?
