How do you get paint thinner out of a clothes washer?
Accidently threw several paint thinner rags into the washing machine with a full load of clothing. I can only tell you what does not work....
1) Wash the load 5 times. Smell does not disapate at all. Eyes watering if the door to the washing machine is open.
2) 2 gallons of vinegar over 2 loads. Eyes still watering.
3) Soaked all clothing in bathtub with a full bottle of Dawn dishsoap. Clothes smelling better. Rinse in washing machine. Eyes are still watering and now the clothes reek again.
4) Tide washing machine cleaner. A slightly milder version of paint thinner with just a whiff of mountain fresh.
5) Oxy clean. Just for giggles. Results unknown but next on the list is orange degreaser, TSP, baking soda. And then to try find and clean the hidden drain reservoir but we seem to be lacking a binding agent to make this a successful solutions. Oh, the poor environment......
