Is your new year’s resolution to start afresh? Why not start with cleaner appliances to allow you a good start to the new?
Over the course of the festivity’s things can become chaotic and not cleaned to their usual standard. To restore some order to your home after this hectic and joyful period our fast acting and highly effective Knaus appliances cleaning range will clean them in no time.
Use KNAUS Washing Machine Cleaner and KNAUS Dishwasher Cleaner to give both your washing machine and dishwasher a really deep clean. These two appliances will have been worked through their paces during the festivities and may well be starting to smell not as fresh and not cleaning your laundry and dishes as well.
To clean the door seal and soap/detergent drawer of the washing machine:
Pour 1 dose of KNAUS Washing Machine Cleaner using the dosage strip on the bottle into an empty sink/bowl to make a solution. Then place the soap drawer into the solution to soak. Using a brush remove the encrusted detergent. Soak a cloth/sponge in the solution and wipe around the door seal and soap/detergent drawer cavity.
To clean the washing machine:
Ensure the washing machine is empty. Pour 1 dose of the KNAUS Washing Machine Cleaner using the dosage strip on the side of the bottle into the soap drawer and run on a 30 minute cycle at 40c or lower with no pre rinse.

Pour 1 dose of KNAUS Dishwasher Cleaner using the dosage strip on the bottle into an empty sink/bowl to make a solution. Put the filter and spray arms into the solution to soak and to remove debris.
