Let the musty-smelling clothes hang outside in the fresh air or wash them on a short washing program. Another way to make your clothes or shoes smell fresh again is to put them in the freezer overnight. This kills all bacteria that cause the smelly odors.

Polish both the inside and the outside of the washing machine door. Clean between and behind the rubbers and turn a 90 degree wash once.

Now you have a clean washing machine and clean clothes. Feels great right?! We are ready for wonderful weather. Enjoy some time outside to feel the sunshine, as research shows exposure to sun really makes people happy. Time to Cheer UP!
