A cleaning guru has shared a little-known washing machine cleaning tip that has left people across the country in disbelief. Posting on Facebook, a woman revealed that she had just discovered that the appliance drawer can be removed from the machine and cleaned separately.
After discovering this new revelation, she discovered that the compartment was covered in dirt and grime. Disgusted by what was in front of her eyes, she quickly cleaned it off using a toothbrush and hot dishwashing liquid.
The woman then took to social media to post her discovery of the cleaning tips and tricks group, along with photos of her compartment before and after cleaning, telling her followers, “How the hell did I could not have known that this drawer was out? now officially an adult and loves cleaning. Thank you all for your cleaning tips and tricks.”
