Dealing with black mold in your washing machine? Using chlorine detergent or bleach can work, but follow these steps for safety:
Materials: Chlorine detergent or bleach, rubber gloves, cleaning cloth or sponge.
- Wear rubber gloves for hand protection.
Ensure good ventilation (open windows or use exhaust fans) to avoid inhaling chlorine fumes.
- Empty the washing machine.
- Wipe the drum with a cloth soaked in chlorine detergent.
- Scrub the rubber seal with a chlorine solution.
- Run a cleaning cycle.
- Repeat as needed.
Don't mix chlorine bleach with other cleaners to avoid harmful fumes
