Affresh™ Washer Cleaner - Product Review

Tuesday, April 12, 2011
Did you know that all top-load washers should be cleaned once a month? I never knew that, but it would certainly explain the stench emanating from my washing machine.

Our house was built about 15 years ago. We moved in 5 years ago, and I am almost certain that our washer is the original one that was purchased after construction was completed. But like most people, we have no plans to replace it until it breaks. However, I am always looking for ways to add "newness" to it.

Included in the swag from Getting Gorgeous was Affresh Washer Cleaner. Affresh prevents odor-causing residue from accumulating in the washer. Resembling those dishwasher detergent tablets that I am so fond of, Affreshis super simple to use. Just watch the video below to see for yourself.

Over the weekend, I decided to give Affresha whirl. I wanted nothing more than to get the nasty smell out of my washer. After I adjusted the settings on the washer, I dropped in 1 tablet and let it work its magic. The washer was like a "watched pot". I kept checking on the dial to see when it would be finished. I couldn't wait to smell it.

I was completely surprised at how well Affreshworked. I had confidence that it would tackle the smell to some extent, but I wasn't holding my breath that the stench would completely be eliminated. I gave the washer a full 24 hours of rest. I wanted to see if the washer retained its neutral smell. Sure enough, several days and several loads of laundry later, Affreshis still wowing me!
