The Truth About Washing Machine Cleaner Tablets The Truth About Washing Machine Cleaner Tablets

Laundry is at the top of everyone's list of the least favorite chores to do. The last thing you want to think about is the maintenance that goes along with all the washing. In some cases, washing machine tablets make that less of a worry. Washer cleaning tablets have been a super common and convenient way to clean, but how efficient and effective are they? 

Although washing machine cleaning tablets may be a quick solution, a closer examination suggests they may not be as effective as their marketing claims. After some investigating, these tablets can be considered outdated technology and are not the best choice for preserving washer freshness, eliminating mold, and ensuring cleanliness, especially with the newest product that came to market.

Limited Cleaning Power and Efficiency

Out of the package, washing machine cleaning tablets are supposed to remove residue, detergent build-up, and odor from the drum and other parts of the appliance. This can be a challenge for families who do more than a few loads of laundry a week which introduces a heavier amount of residue, dirt, hair, and other debris. 

Does the increased amount of washes that a family of 4 or more needs to do hold up to washing machine tablets that only last about a month per application? Reading through reviews across a few different brands and platforms about washing cleaner tablets mention this flaw with some saying one month takes not one but two tablets to get the job done.

Newer technology now offers washing machine cleaners that last longer and are much more efficient. A nano-ceramic coating is even left behind for added protection lasting up to 90 days+! 

Left Over Residue and Not Fully Dissolving

With just a few searches online, especially when looking at reviews, it's easy to find out that there are issues with tablets leaving behind a residue on the drum of the washer regardless of machine type. Typically this occurs following the first application cycle with the tablet being used. It can be described as a chalky white residue that coats the drum of your machine and has to be wiped away or another cycle has to be run again. This can be quite frustrating especially if it occurs each time you use a “monthly” tablet or if you do not notice it and you wash your clothes directly after which can leave residue on them.

Another challenge that some face is that tablets do not dissolve properly, are crumbed, or more commonly are destroyed in the packaging. Tablets that do not dissolve properly simply will not efficiently clean your washing machine. Common occurrences can even happen in warm water cycles where the tablet is more likely to work correctly. While this might be the case with every tablet you use, it can be frustrating when it does occur especially if a quarter or more of your tablets are duds. As mentioned before, a newer technology that is now available comes in liquid form and removes both of these possibilities from the equation immediately.

It May Clean But Does it Protect?

When a washing machine tablet works as intended it’s designed to clean your machine, removing odors, debris, and leaves behind a fresh scent. Of course, this is why people buy these products, but what if you could use one that not only cleans better but can protect and coat your washing machine with a ceramic coating film?
