Clean and sanitize my washing machine with Xin Juke tub cleaning powder




Washing machine is commonly used in modern household to help us wash and clean our clothes without much hassle.

Over time, external surface of the inner tub of the washing machine will develop many of these contaminations, which might in turn contaminate the clothes in it:

  • Residue of detergent
  • Lint
  • Dirt
  • Mildew
  • Fungal
  • Allergens
  • Bacteria (including staphylococcus aureus, escherichia coli, etc.)

Therefore, it is advisable to regularly clean and sanitize your washing machine.

You can DIY your own homemade washing machine tub cleaning formula by washing it with the following one-by-one:
  • Baking soda powder (1 tea cup + full tank of water)
  • White vinegar (2 tea cups + full tank of water)
  • Bleach (1 tea cup + full tank of water) 
I use Xin Juke tub cleaning powder for this purpose, one 90 gram packet at a time. Each 90 gram packet cost RM3.90 only. This washing machine cleaning power is suitable for both the top loaded and front loaded types of washing machine.


Using Xin Juke or other similar washing machine cleaning solution can save some hassle, time, and water used. The Xin Juke doesn't cost much too, although some other brand of similar solution might cost a lot.

The steps for using Xin Juke in top loading washing machine are:
  • Dissolve one to two packets of the powder into warm water of around 40~80 degree Celcius.
  • Fill up the washing machine with near full tank water.
  • Pour the Xin Juke solution into the tank. (Alternatively, you can combine the above 2 steps and skip this step, if you can fill the washing machine with warm water. The temperature is suitable to fully dissolve the Xin Juke powder)
  • Put in one to two pieces of cleaning cloth so that the washing machine not running with empty tub.
  • Operate the washing machine for about 10 minutes.
  • Stop the washing machine and let the cleaning solution to work for 3 to 4 hours in still water (but not too long until more than half a day)
  • There might be dirty substances floating on top of the water. Remove them.
  • Continue the washing cycle until it complete. You can use the "tub cleaning" washing cycle if your washing machine support this mode.

The steps for using Xin Juke in front loading washing machine are:
  • Pour one to two packets of the powder into the tub and close the door.
  • Put in one to two pieces of cleaning cloth so that the washing machine not running with empty tub.
  • Fill up half the tub with water, preferably warm water.
  • Operate the washing machine for about 10 minutes.
  • Stop the washing machine and let the cleaning solution to work for 3 to 4 hours in still water (but not too long until more than half a day)
  • Continue the washing cycle until it complete.
The steps are different because once the front loading washing machine is filled up with water, you can't simply open its door!
