Then it's time to clean behind where the drawer typically sits using bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar, along with her trusty Sonic Scrubber to tackle the harder to reach places. Use a sponge to soak up the old water and squeeze to rinse it away.

Sophie then uses the bathroom spray once again to clean the rubber rim of the machine, before cleaning the washing machine drum itself. Simply add a capful of white vinegar and a scoop of bicarbonate of soda into the drum along with the cloths you have used, then put the clean drawer back into your machine and put it on a quick spin cycle to leave the inside sparkling clean.
