Tips for Cleaning & Caring For Your Washing Machine

Just because your washing machine was created to clean things, doesn’t make it exempt from needing some cleaning and care itself from time to time. Your washing machine is an appliance, and like any appliance it needs a bit of TLC every now and then in order to stay in top form. If you spend a few moments now, you will likely keep your washer working as it should, as well as possibly have to spend hundreds of dollars on repairs later on.

EdgeStar Washer Dryer Combo

Whether you own a washer dryer combo or a full-size unit, here are a few tips that everybody should know when it comes to keeping their washing machines in top-working order.

Deep Scrubbing

In order to make sure that your clothes are coming out as clean as they can possibly be, it’s a good idea to deep clean your washing machine once a month. This is also a good way to keep odd smells out of your washer. There are cleaners made specifically for washing machines that you can put to good use. When using a washing machine cleaner, you’ll want to run the machine on an empty cycle on hot wash.

If you like, you can make your own washing machine cleaner with a 3/4 cup of bleach and a teaspoon of powdered laundry detergent. Allow the mixture to run through a single soak cycle before you start up a rinse cycle to make sure that all of the bleach has been washed away.

Why a Heat & Cool Window A/C Unit Makes a Good Investment

When it comes to the comfort of your home, the temperature is one of the primary factors. Having a system or unit that can adequately and consistently heat and cool your space to a comfortable setting is critical. The options for heating and cooling are diverse. Many systems provide either heating or cooling, and must be purchased and installed separately. There are parts of the country where installing a large central air unit creates a greater expense than the need requires.

Likewise, heating units can be extremely expensive, requiring costly fuel purchases such as oil or propane. In some places the mildness of the temperatures for most of the year makes this type of system excessive. A window A/C unit that provides both heat and cool air can save money and create the comfortable environment you want for your home all year-round.

Small Spaces

Even in a home with a large heating and cooling system, there are frequently rooms, particularly in upstairs spaces, converted garages, and attached guest houses that do not get the full benefit of the system. Installing a window A/C unit in these spaces can keep them from being the rooms you close off or avoid during months with extreme temperatures. Running a window unit during these months may also help to reduce the energy costs of the larger system while making any room more comfortable.
