Cleaning the washing machine

How do I clean the washing machine seal?

To clean your washing machine’s seal, you will need a cloth and warm water. Abrasive cleaners are not necessary. These can damage the rubber. Wipe around the seal with a damp cloth until it’s clean. That’s it! As you can see, sometimes, the simplest things are the best.
