If you’ve never cleaned your washing machine before, there may be a build-up of dirt, minerals, and powder that settles on your clothes.
It is better to look at it like a soap dish in the bathroom, which willy-nilly collect sediment on its floor.
Low consumption washing machines should be cleaned monthly due to the low water usage.
Meanwhile, a normal washing machine should be cleaned at least twice a year.
A dirty washing machine can be one of the main causes of Saras detergent powder remaining on clothes in the washing machine.
Hard water reacts with the detergent, resulting in residue on your clothes. In general, hard water is water that contains mineral salts such as calcium and magnesium at a high level.
When the water used has these specifications, calcium and magnesium are deposited on the clothes and give them stiffness and dryness.
If the water you use has a high level of minerals, you will face the problem of dry clothes and deposits on them.
Since most of the powder in your washing machine reacts with mineral salts, it is better to increase the amount of washing powder to 30%. Another factor that helps to dissolve washing machine powder is the heat of the water.
If the water you use has the characteristics of hard water, try to use a higher water temperature for washing clothes.
How to get rid of powder on clothes in the washing machine?
As soon as you have removed all the reasons for the powder remaining on the clothes in the washing machine, the only thing left is to wash the clothes again.
Wash your stained clothes with the highest water temperature suitable for them, without using powder or fabric softener.
Instead of powder and softener, use a glass of white vinegar in washing these clothes. This will help the clothes relax a bit and release the sediment.
