Having a well-looked after washing machine is essential to ensuring your laundry loads will be clean after they go through the wash. There is also another way to make your clothes and linen smell and feel great after a cycle – and this involves white distilled vinegar.

According to Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips, putting a capsule of this vinegar into the drawer of your washing machine instead of fabric conditioner when putting a load on can transform your laundry.

One lady wrote about her experience, saying: “I jumped on the bandwagon and I am AMAZED – my washing has never smelt so nice and clean!”

The hack does not just clean the contents of the appliance, but also the washing machine itself, with House Beautiful revealing that the user posted: “And my washing machine is sparkling.”

She went on to say the clothes simply have a “much stronger smell of detergent” than they would if she used ordinary washing powder and fabric conditioner.

Homemakers were so taken back by her experience that her Facebook post received 1,500 likes and 1,300 comments.

Distilled white vinegar is also great at cleaning other appliances, ensuring they are kept in top condition. These include the microwave, which can be cleaned by mixing a quarter of a cup of white vinegar with a cup of water and heating it in the machine until it is boiling. The steam from the solution help removes grime, which you can then wipe away.

If, however, your household machines need more than just a clean, appliance repairs in Birmingham can fully restore them in no time.
