Since we created first washer deodorizer in 2006 there are now many companies selling their version. In the spirit of capitalism we must welcome competition as it can only be good for the consumer. This is the first in a series of DIY education posts to explain why using Smelly Washer Cleaner is your best decision when cleaning your washer.
Tide Washing Machine Cleaner, simply by virtue of being Tide, has the biggest market share. Since 2009 they've been available at many retailers. The biggest complaint from consumers seems to be a heavy chemical smell. Our main advantage over Tide is being all natural and unscented. Our 24 treatments compared to their 3 is also important to consider. We also contend the inability to be used on clothing limits effectiveness as even "cleaning" cycles in washers do not remove residue from the splash area above the normal waterline. The splash area is invariably the area of heaviest buildup of soap residue.
Simply add a cap of Smelly Washer or towel cleaner to a full load of laundry. This will easily clean the residue from the splash area in your Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag, LG, GE, Frigidaire, Samsung or any other brand of washer you may have.
