Essential Laundry Room Cleaning Solutions
Other than the time it takes you to wash and dry your clothes, you probably don’t spend much of your day hanging out in the laundry room. If you do, there is a good chance that you notice that the room is in desperate need of deep cleaning. It doesn’t take long before dust and dirt gather behind the dryer and around the vent, or the washing machine emits an unpleasant odor. A dirty washer and dryer don’t get your laundry as clean as they should, and the build-up of lint is a fire hazard. Learn how to clean the laundry room from top to bottom to ensure your appliances run smoothly and the area is safe.
