How to Disinfect a Washing Machine After Washing Poopy Clothes


If you run into an issue with poopy clothes, you must wash the clothing to remove all of the messy residue. Even though the washing machine is capable of getting the garments clean, you often find yourself feeling like the washer should be disinfected to kill any leftover bacteria that may still be harboring in the washer. To keep the washer clean, use a strong cleaning agent that deodorizes and disinfects without harming the washing machine.

Things You'll Need

  • Bleach
  • Turn on the washing machine, selecting a short, hot water wash cycle.

  • Pour 1 cup bleach into the washer. The bleach will safely clean and disinfect your washing machine.

  • Let the wash cycle complete, making sure no other garments are in the washer during the cleaning process.

  • Repeat this routine as needed to keep the washer bacteria-free.
