Your Washing Machine Could Be Making You Sick.

Your washing machine can make you sick.
Even after several huge washing machine manufacturers agreed to settle a number of class action lawsuits against them, mold and mildew can still be a huge concern to your health…
That's the bad news.
The good news is, there is something you can do about it right now.
It all starts with an odor in your clothes.
"It kind of smells like something has rotten in there,” says front-loading washer owner, Francesca Watts.Annoying, but all too common for any washing machine owner.
At his Newport appliance store, Julien says, he sees and hears about it a lot from customers.
“It does happen very often, and I mean it's not cheap to repair either.” In fact, Julien points out, it can cost up to $300, $400 or even $500 to fix, depending on the model of your washer. The reason is that harmful, black mold gets underneath the drum and in the rubber gasket.
Julien says “there will always be water in that washer. it will never fully drain out.”
Much of that water remains underneath the drum. The perfect nursery for mold to grow.
“If you have a front loader, you’ll also slowly start seeing mold in the rubber gasket,” points out Julien. “That's when people start noticing that something’s wrong with their washer”
“Once you take it apart, it’s much worse,” Julien shows, presenting the drum he pulled out of another washer.
“Like I said, it will spread out all the way through until there won't be any spot that does not have any mold.”
Once it starts, every spin of the drum helps to spread that mold through your clothes.
Mold spores can also spread very easily in your home and that, says
Dr. Baz of the Baz Allergy, Asthma and Sinus center, can lead to anything from hay fever sneezing, watery eyes, headaches, sinus infections and even asthma in sensitive individuals.
But, it doesn't have to be that way.
Julien shows us his favorite, cost-effective solution to treat mold in your washer without the need of taking it apart and spending 100s of dollars. He pulls out a little pack of Tablets called “Dexter”.
“These are truly amazing” he says. “Use 2-3 of them at first if you’ve never cleaned your washer before, then 1 tablet every 1-2 months will do the job. Simply throw them into your washer, run the cleaning cycle (or select the largest load on highest temperature setting) and you won’t have any ugly surprises” On top of that, Dexter also claims their tablets kill 99.2% of all the bacteria & pathogens in your washer. We have tested this and can only confirm their statement. “Since I have discovered them, I recommend these to all my clients. They have literally doubled the lifespan of some of my customers washers already.” Julien adds.
Dexter Tablets are also 100% Septic Safe and work with any kind of washing machine - front & top loaders as well as HE & non HE washers.
Dexter is currently running a promotion for up to 40% Off your order, if you choose one of their value bundles. Plus they have a 100% money back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied.
The last question I asked Julien is why he promotes these rather than simply sticking to repairing the washers - wouldn’t he make more money that way? “Yes, I would. But this is not the type of work I enjoy, neither is it a sustainable solution that makes my customers happy in the long term. That’s why I love these Dexter tablets so much - they keep your washer clean on a consistent basis”
