Descale the washing machine

Are there any household products I can use to descale the washing machine?

You’re thinking of descaling your washing machine using standard household products. We advise you not to descale your washing machine with household products that contain acid or vinegar. These can attack the rubber parts of the machine.

Primarily, make sure that you use sufficient washing detergent and descale your machine regularly with washing machine cleaner tested by Bosch. Please follow your detergent manufacturer’s instructions to avoid unnecessary build up of limescale.
