Influencer Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, rose to fame with her cleaning tips and recommendations on social media and TV. The cleaning enthusiast has managed to gain over four million followers on Instagram. Now many fans follow in her footsteps and have created their own social media groups dedicated to cleaning and tidying tips, one of which includes hacks for removing washing machine mould.

Posting on the Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It Facebook page, one woman asked how to remove mould from their washing machine.

“Facebook user Sinead Dunleavy posted: “Hi, we have an apartment that we rent out, our last tenants left the washing machine disgusting.

“It’s got what looks like mould on the rubber inside.

“Can anyone suggest what’s best to get it out?”

Washing machines need to be cleaned regularly and can build mould when they are not left to dry properly.

Although the washing machine seal is hidden, it can harbour bacteria as well as germs.

The post was inundated with comments from fellow cleaning enthusiasts with their tips and tricks.

To clean the seal, the majority of group members suggested using mould spray.

Lauren Gaskell commented: “Astonish Mould and Mildew and leave it for about half hour, after that scrub off. It works amazing.”

Stacey Shurmer wrote: “Astonish Mould and Mildew”

Astonish Mould and Mildew Remover helps to remove tough stains and claims to effectively remove mould and mildew within minutes.

The mould remover spray can be picked up from B&M and Home Bargains for around £1.

Sarah Williams added: “Scrape out the seal, then spray with Astonish Mould and Mildew and leave it. 

“Whilst that’s working, clean the drawer and the filters. Once the seals are done, run everything through on a hot wash.”

Some users suggested using soda crystals to clean washing machines.

Soda crystals help to soften water, dissolve grease and tackle dirt and stains.

They can be used in a laundry load as well as on their own to clean the machine thoroughly.

Hedi Babel-Smith said: “Pop some soda crystals in and put on a hot wash.”

Amy Lea Catterall wrote: “Soda crystals helped me with mine.”

Other group members suggested using sterilising tablets and white vinegar.

Deborah Edwards said: “What about putting the machine on a hot wash with a couple of sterilising tablets in. 

“I often pop one in my dishwasher and the inside comes out gleaming.”

Bee Kerr wrote: “Hot wash with a bottle of white vinegar.”
