The Appliance Online expert said the key to a thorough clean without the time consuming stripping process is to use the pre-wash setting on your machine instead.

"Many washing machines have a pre-wash cycle option, which is a 15-minute cycle that is aimed to loosen any deep dirt on your garments,” he told the outlet, 9Now.

“After this pre-wash, it continues with the normal cycle at the desired temperature," he explained.”

This will help correct for a lot of issues that are holding you back from deeply cleaned threads. 

"Throughout the whole wash process, your machine will maintain the temperature giving you the most effective outcome,” Jones explained.

“If you were doing a strip wash, the temperature would not stay consistent as heat would escape from the bathtub or sink.”

The expert says it’s also important to make sure you pick the right cycle, temperature and speed settings.
