Awesome

This product removed the smell from my washer. I highly recommend using it every 2 weeks or so just to keep everything smelling fresh. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Could smell better

While this does seem to do an okay job cleaning the washing machine. The smell is not near as fresh as I would have thought, and actually a little unpleasant.

Pickle Smell

I used this product and my washer smells like pickles now. I ran the washer 8 more times and cannot get rid of the odor. Apparent lack of product research evident. Do not purchase!

Our Washing Machine Cleaner was designed to take on the tough job of freshening your washing machine drum and may create a fragrance in smaller spaces. This smell should dissipate within thirty minutes at most! Either way, our cleaner has passed extensive testing to ensure it's safe for use. We'd like to speak with you further to see what we can do to help. Please give us a call at 1-(800)-879-8433 anytime between Monday and Friday, 9am-5pm EST as we'd love to learn more about your experience.
