Uh oh. Now I've done it. I stuck a load of clothes into the washing machine. I got busy with my day, then I started to feel sick. Before I knew it, I had forgotten about the wash for over a full day. I approached the machine and cautiously opened it to find.....
I tried rewashing, but the smell was still there. Only now it smelled worse.
I had to find a way to get the smell out. So I went online and found a few ways.
Here is the one I used:
I wiped down the gasket with hot soapy water, but that didn't take all the smell away, so I wiped it down with vinegar. That got it.
I then ran the machine on a cycle with a cup of bleach.
No more smell.
