Am I the only one?

Am I the only one who cleans (dusts) her washer and dryer on a weekly basis? My friend called yesterday and suggested I clean mine because she just had cleaned hers and it was bad I guess. She was shocked when I told her I did this weekly.

  • I wipe mine down every week or two when I'm doing a load of whites.

  • I wipe my down every week, too. They're next to the slop sink, so with everyone washing their hands there, plus general dust & the dog hair that floats everywhere, they get pretty dirty.

  • I wipe mine down weekly too, I just take a towel that is down there needing to be washed anyway and was it down and then toss it in. I mean really it may be a little dusty but it is mostly drips of detergent why not put it to use and wipe it down?

  • I clean it every month....i actually started buying dry deturgent instead of wet because the liquid always left marks and leaked...i hated that i buy dry deturgent i dont have to clean the area nearly as often as i used to..

  • I generally will wipe it down when I'm doing laundry if it looks like it needs it, but I don't think I do it weekly.

  • I wipe mine down because I can't stand the mess. But not weekly, just as needed.

  • I do it as needed, but usually at least once/week. I have 5 kids, 3 of who help me with laundry - so I get some drips from detergent on the washer, lint left on top of the dryer, etc. so it has to be done!
