Recently, according to a sample of washing machines in Beijing, Shanghai and other large cities, the over-standard rate of bacteria is 95.8%, the over-standard rate of coliforms is 37.5%, fungi The over-standard rate was 45.8%, the mold over-standard rate was 60%, and some pathogens such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa were also detected. The washing machine can wash our dirty clothes, but its own health problems are rarely noticed.
The washing machine has two parts that are easy to hide: First, the inner tank of the washing machine is the interlayer of the inner tube and the outer tube. The washing water flows between the washing machine tank and the inner tube, and the scale, the scale, the laundry Impurities such as free matter, clothing fibers and dirt, and human organic matter adhere to the inner tank wall, accumulating a layer of stubborn dirt and becoming a hotbed for breeding bacteria; second, residual water accumulated in the drain pipe. So how do you avoid it?
△ Let the washing machine “drink a bath regularly”. Add appropriate amount of special washing machine disinfectant, add water to the high position, let the machine run normally for 5 minutes to fully dissolve the detergent. If it is a drum washing machine, it can be heated to above 40 °C, which can make the detergent work better. After that, the washing machine is turned off and soaked for 1 hour, and then the body is cleaned in the normal washing mode, and a large amount of dirt debris can be seen in the discharged water. This cleaning can be performed once a month.
△ Socks and underwear should be washed by hand. Socks are most prone to fungi. If they are washed in a washing machine, they may cause pollution to the washing machine and other clothes. The clothes are worn close to the body. Once they are contaminated by microorganisms in the washing machine, they are likely to cause harm to the human body.
△ Develop a scientific laundry habit. The washing machine should be placed in a ventilated and bright place. After washing the clothes, the cover should be opened for a period of time to promote the evaporation of residual moisture and inhibit the growth of microorganisms.
