“Powder enzymes keep the mould and black in the drawer away.”

A third user said: “Every few washes I do machine clean on detox and bleach in powder tray.

“I also changed back to powder instead of pods and liquid.

“This has stopped the smell from the sink as our washing machine and sink go down the same pipe like in many new houses – double win!”

A fourth penned: “Alternate between powder and liquid, do hot washes with powder regularly, and leave the door ajar between washes.”

However, other users suggested using white vinegar to remove the black substance from the washing machine seal.

Other suggestions from cleaning enthusiasts include using salt, Dettol, dishwasher tablets, Zoflora and soda crystals.
