Hi it's us ...
Where do your dirty clothes go after being used?
Most of the time, they are piled up before being washed, causing a “dirty clothes smell” to pass between garments. Often, this smell is not present in regular washes, or it can be accentuated with the artificial fragrances being added by other laundry products. Perfumes are frequently added to these products to mask odours, but unfortunately, they can produce an unpleasant odour.
Often enough, your washing machine might have a strong odour that can also be transferrable to your clothes. This is a result of dirt, grime and gunk that has accumulated in the machine’s unseen parts. It is essential that you are using the right products that look after not only your clothes but your washing machine as well.
At Euca, our products are tried and tested to bring your clothes back to their best clean with our eucalyptus scent and our seasonal variants that contain essential oils like jasmine and lavender. Our products not only leave your clothes without any nasty or artificial smells but also clean your washing machine as you wash.
Most mainstream laundry products are more likely to leave residue and gunk build-up, which causes odours, damages pumps, and reduces the overall life span of your machine. With Euca, you only need one product (Euca’s Laundry Powder Concentrate) to do the job without the help of additional products. A laundry cleaner that takes out all the hard laundry work - now that’s handy.
It is also important to check your machine’s manual for the maker’s recommended cleaning instructions. In general, cleaning methods for front and top loading machines are the same. Reading the manual keeps you informed of the specific cleaning methods for your washing machine, so you know where the filters and other unique features are.
Now that you know the basics, let’s summarise what you need to know:
Always use Euca Laundry Powder or Liquid
Euca’s 50 years old super formula has a higher concentration level than those you can find in the supermarket. Our formula requires less overall product, which saves you money. It is also an ideal blend for use in all modern High-Efficiency machines – Euca has you covered.
There have been numerous debates about fabric softeners, the majority of which are correct. Euca’s “FABO” Fabric Softener is made with all raw and natural ingredients, so it will not react with your Euca Laundry Powder. One of the primary causes of gunk buildup in our machines is because of the chemicals in store-bought fabric softeners, which do not mix well with the remnants of the laundry cleaner.
Regularly Check and Clean Any Filters
Check your machine’s manual for the location of any inbuilt filters. These will need regular checking and possible cleaning as they easily catch onto any fibres or soils that travel through your machine.
Clean the Dispenser Drawer
This is one of the forgotten, but most important jobs. If your machine has dispenser drawers in place, they need to be checked for any built-up residue. Pop them out, take them apart and rinse them using the Euca Multi to help melt any grime away. Use hot water if possible. Now, for the tricky part: if the drawer can be removed completely, you need to have a look above at the area where the drawer usually sits. This is where the water dispenser is located and where water can sit for long periods. When it is mixed with laundry detergent, it produces gunk and mould, which can clog jets. You can use a toothbrush or any other small brush to clean the area. Remember once finished, wipe completely dry and then reassemble and reinsert the drawer into the machine.
Note: Always try to leave the drawer slightly open after each wash to make sure that it dries.
Always Take Clean Clothes Out Promptly
Remove your clean clothes as soon as the wash cycle is finished to avoid the musty odour buildup that can occur if they are left standing for an extended period.
Wipe and Dry your Machine after each Use
Yes, another cleaning tip that is sure to save you time later. We recommend after each washing period, that you wipe down the rubber gasket to prevent the growth of mould. Wipe and dry the drum and exterior as best as you can. Lastly, leave the door or lid open to fully dry. This may take a few days, but we recommend you leave them open to dry fully.
