Washing machine drawer hack leaves it looking sparklingly clean

A hidden feature found in washing machine drawers has stunned cleaning fans across the country, including one woman who has now shared the trick. Faith, a house-proud mum, did not previously know washing machine drawers could be removed and cleaned separately.

After discovering that the drawer had a “little piece to push down”, she was able to see how dirty it had become, the Mirror reports. But with a simple combination of warm water, washing up liquid, a toothbrush and a cloth, as well as “a lot of scrubbing”, she had it looking as good as a new.

After sharing her discovery on Facebook, several others were bowled over by the little-known cleaning hack. It was shared in a group called Cleaning Tips and Tricks.

Another said: “I did not know of this trickery either!”

If you can’t seem to get the drawer out, don’t worry – members of the group were quick to offer advice, which is to press down in the middle of the drawer where fabric softener is poured, and give it a gentle pull.
