How to Use CLR to Clean Washing Machines
Using CLR to clean washing machine is probably one of the best solutions. CLR itself is the shortened name of Calcium Lime Rust. It is a cleaning product to take care of many kinds of stains like calcium, lime, or iron oxide deposits. CLR cleaning products will dissolve them easily in no time. So, can I use CLR in the washing machine? Of course, not just a washing machine, you can also clean a coffee maker too.
First thing you will ask is, “how do I add CLR to my washing machine?” Well, it is simple. All you need is the CLR liquid filled in half on a cup and pour it to the loader. Before that, make sure that there is no any detergent or chemical stuff inside the washing machine before pouring the CLR. After that, you can run a normal cycle and followed by a warm wash cold rinse cycle. And finally, run water only rinse cycle.

Well, it is quite tricky. First of all, you need to run an empty cycle with some hot water and a good detergent by letting the washer soak for an entire night. It is suggested to run a warm or hot wash once in a while if you used to wash your clothes in cold water to reduce some amount of build-ups. If you’re still facing the same problem, it wasn’t the washer fault, but it is the water hardness. Water hardness can even make your clothes got grey or black marks.
