I just saw a post saying this? Tell me about it. My front loader doesn't stink, but I have noticed it doesn't smell as fresh lately. I use the tide cleaner 2x a month. Would borax or vinegar work better? Is it one or the other? Both? Do I run the cycle with clothes in the wash, or alone? Mix the borax with detergent? Vinegar where the fabric softner would go? My washer has 3 compartments....one for detergent, one for bleach and one for fabric softner. Lots of questions, I know. I have just never heard of this. Please enlighten me.
