Woman astounds cleaning fans with little-known washing machine drawer feature


A woman who loves cleaning has stunned fellow enthusiasts with her clever trick to getting her washing machine drawer sparkling.

Having previously had no clue that the drawer could be removed from the machine to be cleaned separately, the house proud mum didn’t know how dirty it had become.

The woman, whose name is Faith, managed to slide out the drawer after realising it had “a little piece to push down”, and was able to get a proper look at it.

Noticing the compartment was looking rather grimy, Faith set about cleaning it using a simple yet effective combo of warm washing up liquid water, a toothbrush, and a cloth.

After “a lot of scrubbing”, Faith was able to get her washing machine drawer sparkling once more, and many have been impressed by the satisfying results.

Taking to the Facebook group Cleaning tips and tricks with before and after pictures of her drawer, an incredulous Faith wrote: “How on earth did I not know this drawer came out?!

“I’m not officially an adult and love cleaning haha! Thank you everyone for your cleaning tips and tricks”.

Many other members were similarly amazed by the apparently little-known hack, having also had no idea whatsoever that the drawer could be removed and scrubbed separately in this way.

One astounded woman wrote: “They say you learn something every day. Well, today I learned this thank you”.

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

Offering help to those who weren’t sure how to get their own drawers to budge, various members who’ve tried this hack before advised to press down in the middle of the drawer, right where the fabric softener is poured, before giving it a gentle pull.

We’ll definitely be giving this a go for ourselves!
