Here at Markatos Services, we’re always looking to bring you new cleaning tips and tricks. The article below was written by Gettin’ By.

I’ve never thought to wash anything in my washing machine other than clothes, but I suppose a laundry bag can make it possible to clean so much more, including small lego pieces! You could also use this concept in the dishwasher.

Yes, this was noisy, and I’m sure it would’ve gone a lot smoother if I had one of those washing machine without the center spindle.  Just the same, it worked!

Still, the legos are now clean, and I’m not so averse to playing with them; Son will be happy to hear that.
