IF your clothes come out of the washing with detergent residue, there might be a blockage in your machine.
A TikToker has revealed the cleaning feature you may be overlooking when it comes to your washing machine.
TikTok user Kris Brickel, who runs the account KBrick1012, recently learned a washing machine cleaning hack that will make your life so much easier.
"So I was helping my mom clean out a laundry closet because she’s having her floor replaced. We were pulling up the washer and dryer to do a bunch of things and clean them," the TikToker explained.
"I noticed that the washer had [that] funky gunk that just builds up from detergent and stuff, no matter how many times you wipe it," she continued.
This hack applies to top loading washing machines only.
Demonstrating for her viewers, Kris said: "This agitator thing in the center, it comes out. So you can actually take it out and the inside thing out and clean it."
"Instead of trying to just wipe around it you can actually take it out and clean it," she told her followers.
Kris added: "Didn’t know that. I was trying to clean it and I pulled my hand up and it came out."
The TikTok user acknowledged that the washing machine feature might be common place for some users, but she was shocked to discover it.
