Yes, you need to wash ... your washing machine. Over time, the machine can become a breeding ground for foul-smelling bacteria, which can affect how clean your clothes, bedding and towels get when you use it. The good news is, cleaning your washer is easy to do. Just pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the detergent dispenser and run it on the longest cycle at the hottest setting. When it's done, pour baking soda into the machine and run it on the same cycle. Voila! Clean.
