How To Detoxify Your Washing Machine
One of the worst nightmare horrors that canaries have to contend with is a washing machine that stinks very badly of perfume, toxic fragrance laden detergent, and fabric softener. Detoxifying a washing machine that is this toxic is very stressful and is very involved, but it's worth it to have safe clean fresh air and clean clothes that have no smell or scent. The best way to clean and detoxify the machine is to use a well tested non-toxic earth-friendly mixture that we've been using for many years. Act as if you're going to run a full load of laundry. Pour in one full small or medium box of baking soda, one full small cereal sized bowl of white distilled vinegar, and one cereal sized bowl of Borax and run a regular or large size load with hot water. This method is very effective and depending on how toxic your washing machine is, hopefully the detox will only require a couple loads. It's important to repeat this method five or six times to start. After you've run several loads, open the lid and smell the machine. All the toxic chemical residue has been just sitting inside the washing machine, stinking and polluting it, creating a serious health hazard. The best part about doing this is, providing that either you're the only person using this machine or you are fortunate enough to share the machine with people who are as organic and earth-friendly conscious as you are and use only 100% organic, non-toxic, earth-friendly products, you won't have to repeat this process any more. Good luck, good health, and warm wishes!
