BACTERIA AND MOLD
INSIDE WASHING MACHINES





Bacteria and Mold Inside Washing Machines


Ever find your laundry spotted with lint, tiny black stains, or even giving off an unpleasant odor? These are the signs that your washing machine may be home to colonies of bacteria.
 
The inside of a washing machine is frequently moist. Additionally, washed-off lint and dirt can pile up in nooks and crevices that are hard to spot. The combination of moisture, lint, and dirt can, over time, become an ideal environment for bacterial growth.

According to research conducted in Japan, the longer a washing machine has been operating, and the more often it’s been used, the more mold can be found on the washing machine cylinder and on your laundry. Medical experts suspect that bacteria residing in a washing machine could account for skin allergies, yeast infections, and so forth.
