    1 cup of bleach on run hot water as long as possible wash cycle. Then rinse. When it is done leave lid open. Moisture, heat, dirt and darkness are where mold grows the best.

    Leave the lid open in future. It lets the machine dry out and there is nowhere for mould to grow.

    Baking soda + vinegar.
