  • run a cycle with a cup of vinegar in it.....and then when the machine is not in use leave the lid open so the inside can air out and dry

  • i normally take a wet towel (that i am getting ready to wash anyway) and give it a once over then wash a load and check it again or run a straight HOT water and bleach load through
