Washing machines collect a lot of dirt and soil during the laundry load. Most of this dirt and soil is washed away with the water in each load, but gradually over time a buildup of dirt can occur. Often times you become aware of this dirt and soil buildup because of an unpleasant odor in your machine. Using Clorox® Washing Machine Cleaner monthly actually helps freshen your machine so that you have a clean base for doing laundry.
Most high efficiency machines actually have a "Maintenance Cycle" to encourage you to clean your machine, but the same dirt can build up in a traditional top-loading machine. If your machine does not contain a "Maintenance Cycle", you can run a cycle manually. See below for more information.
Most manufacturers recommend you perform this periodic maintenance cycle at least once per month, if not on a weekly basis.
This product delivers the same great cleaning power as the original Clorox® Washing Machine Cleaner, now in a new package.
