    I just did this and machine doesn't smell like vinegar at all 😀

    I use vinegar as fabric softener sometimes and it does not leave a smell in clothes either.

    Its amazing something so potent does not leave a smell in washing machines!

    I used to be so skeptical of homemade cleaners but I've just swapped to one and its so good. Water, vinegar, bicarb and essential oil drops (tea tree and Orange) and I also add a teeny squirt of disinfectant. It cleans just about everything and it's all so shinny.

    I have cleaned with vinegar and sprayed with clove oil/water. Repeated a few times.

    I got it at the chemist. Some chemists have it behind the counter - some have it on the shelves. You are better off just asking them because the bottle is teeny weeny and hard to find generally lol.

    I warn you though - the smell is potent and you will need to air out the room lots.

    Vinegar. Put some in a bag and pull the head down and put the bag of vinegar over it and fix it on with a rubber band. Leave it overnight.
