Cleaning whizz, Kaye Marie, has revealed her go-to routine using a £1 buy to banish mould and nasty smells.

Taking to social media, Kaye shared her routine after one follower asked how to stop it from smelling damp all the time, despite drying the drum out after every wash.

Kaye, who has professionally cleaning university houses said: "To prevent those nasty odours coming from your washing machine, you need to keep up with regular clean. I do mine at least once a fortnight now."

The cleaning whizz first used a little soap and water to clean the seal of the drum and then sprayed Elbow Grease as well to get rid of any stubborn grime.

She added: "I love Elbow Grease. As you all know it can rub letters off so just be very careful.

Taking out the detergent drawer, Kaye let it soak in her soap and water mixture and gave it a good spray with Elbow Grease.

Once she had wiped down the outside of her machine, she filled the drum up with white vinegar and a dishwasher tablet.
