It Was a Dark and Stormy Night…

When I realized that slime mold had taken over my washing machine 🤢

There I was, innocently planning to run a load of laundry, when… I smelled that smell, that awful smell, that smell that I have smelled before, and *thought* I had eradicated! OMG! What to do???

I started by doing what I have done before. I wiped down the inside of the door and did an extra thorough job of wiping down the rubber gasket. Still smells… I remembered that there is a little door on the front of the washer where you can clean out the drain… did that… still smells… I am starting to lose my mind at this point. Not a pretty sight, to which John can attest 😂

On a whim, I opened the drawer where you add the laundry detergent. Oh gentle reader, I could not subject you to such a sight, but suffice it to say that I found the source of the smell. Mold was on every flat surface, on every uneven surface, and in every nook and cranny. Now let me just say in my defense, that we have a washer which holds multiple loads of soap (which was also moldy), so we almost never open this drawer!

So what did I do??? I got to work! I took out the drawer and learned that every piece detaches from every other piece, so I that was able to clean the afore mentioned flat and uneven surfaces, as well as the nooks and crannies. And let me tell you… it was no mean feat! Behold🌟🌟🌟

Why does this feel so apropos this close to Halloween… this is an experience I hope none of you have to go through, but if you did, let me know how you kept your sanity… mine is hanging on by a thread. 🤣
