Washing machines provide a prime breeding ground for bacteria and mould infestations. The internal machine environment combines the following elements:
- Laundry featuring human skin and sweat, food, soil, bacteria, mould and fungal spores.
- Residual detergent, lint and other organic material (necessary food source for bacteria and mould).
- Lingering moisture.
Importantly, bacteria, mould and fungal spores are not necessarily eliminated or washed away during a wash cycle. Hot water may suppress the growth of the infestations and even kill some of them. However, spores may remain on clothing, contaminate other clothes, as well as stay in the machine interior.
Bacteria and mould can then flourish in the corners within the internal machine environment (in the door gasket, detergent dispenser and the void between the wash tub and the outer tub).
“Mould that grows in washing machines can be problematic even when the machine is not in use. Mould can trigger allergic symptoms-including sneezing, itching, runny nose, and congestion and can also be an irritant to the airways.” (Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America)
Directions for use:
Add Undiluted liquid into the machine (without clothes)
Use the following amount of liquid based on the washing machines capacity:
- For a 7kg washing machine, use 50ml Liquid
- For a 10kg washing machine, use 80ml Liquid
- For a 20kg washing machine, use 160ml Liquid
Set onto low/minimum water level and soak cycle with cold water.
