A WOMAN was left horrified when she realised how dirty her washing machine really was after popping in a dishwasher tablet for the first time.

TikTok user @jojo_con82 said she has been cleaning her machine for three years with soda crystals and decided to try something new. 

Uploading a video to TikTok, she wrote: “I saw a video about two dishwasher tablets to deep clean it.

“Thought I’d give it a try. Wasn’t expecting too much.”

JoJo was shocked when the water turned brown after just ten minutes into the cycle.

She added: “After one hour. I will be doing this once a month.”
