We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. If your laundry room has a stench that's not coming from your dirty, sweaty clothes, it may be time to clean your washing machine. Mold, mildew or other odor-causing residue can build up in areas you can't see and, before you know it, a funky odor starts to develop. These cleaners are the solution to defunk your machine and leave it looking and smelling like new again. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best washing machine cleaner on Amazon.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as behind the computer screen, Brett can either be found hacking furiously away at the keyboard or perhaps enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He hopes to one day become a modern day renaissance man.
