Step 1: empty the washing machine
To ensure that your clothes are not stained, it is important that you empty the washing machine. Check the cuff carefully. This is the rubber around the filling opening of the washing machine. Sometimes a lost sock or underpants is left behind.
Step 2: fill the detergent drawer with descaler
Pour the descaler into the detergent drawer. Do this in the same compartment where you normally put the detergent. Use the dosage stated on the package of the descaler.
Step 3: run a washing program
Time to start a washing program. Choose a washing program at 40 or 60 degrees without pre-wash. To ensure that the descaler goes through the entire washing machine properly, it is important that you run the washing program until the end.
Step 4: run the same washing program again
If you only run 1 washing program, you have the chance that some of the descaler will remain in the washing machine. Therefore, run the same wash program again with another empty drum. The possible last remnants of the descaler are then definitely gone.
