eSpares Limescale & Detergent Remover - 6 Descaler Sachets

 Protects your machine from limescale & detergents
 Removes bad odours & harmful bacteria build-up
 6-month supply - Boosts performance, saves money...

Protect your dishwasher and washing machine from harmful build-up with eSpares Limescale & Detergent Remover. If you have a smelly washing machine, a smelly dishwasher or your appliance just isn't performing as well as it should be, it could be due to a build-up of limescale and detergent. This descaler will cleanse your machine, removing limescale, detergent and grease build-up and restore them to their top working condition.

A cost-effective way to prolong the life of your appliance and reduce your energy bills


  • 6 months supply
  • Box contains 6x 50g sachets
  • Suitable for use in all makes and models

Please Note: Not suitable for top loading appliances

Hard water leads to deposits building up in your appliance, which reduces its efficiency and leads to premature failure. In fact, British Water say that even a 1.6mm coating of limescale on a heating element can make it up to 12% less effective.

All types of water can cause a build-up of detergent residue inside your machine, which can lead to blockages. This build-up provides an environment for bacteria to thrive causing unpleasant odours.

If you're not sure if you live in a hard or soft water area, try our limescale post code checker.


By simply using one descaler sachet per month your machine will benefit from the following:

  • Removes limescale build-up from internal parts
  • Eliminates powder build-up and odour-causing bacteria
  • Hygienically cleans all internal parts
  • Maximises the efficiency of your appliance
  • If used immediately with new appliances, reduces detergent quantity by up to a third

    Just what I needed

    The product did what it said on the box but didn't quite get rid of all the limescale. Perhaps because it had been left for so long It is still a lot cleaner and fresher than before and I shall use the cleaner regularly on both dishwasher and washing machine. I love eSpares -there is so much information given out to keep machines in good condition and save buying new ones all the time. Good for the environment and good for us Thank you Keep up the good work

    Absolutely brilliant couldn't believe the results. Gave some to my daughter who had the same results. i live in a hard water area and we kept getting sand like deposits on the glasses and cups. Its just about gone now we were going to buy a new dishwasher best ten quid I've spent in ages.

    Smell Gone!

    The product was promptly delivered with a clear description on how to use, greatly enhanced by the 'How To' on-line DVD. Once used in the washing machine, the improvement was instant and I'm delighted with the service eSpares provided. Always a good company to buy from.

What ingredients are in the products and what makes these different from other products?

    Re DM from London's comments. The main active ingredient is sometimes used in denture cleaners and although in high concentrations this product could be harmful, when discharged from the appliance in our opinion it is likely to be no more of a problem than washing machine discharge or even domestic bleach. This would quickly be dispersed in the sewage and waste water from a normal home.

  • The active ingredient in this product is highly toxic and harmful to aquatic life and has been tested on rats, guinea pigs and rabbits. Ok, so you are only using small diluted amounts, but this is sufficiently corrosive to....clean your washing machine! The residues which leave your machine all end up in our waters....they don't magically disappear. I discovered that leaving the door open and mopping up the pooled water left in the door seal stops the drum being smelly as I guess the bacteria need moisture to survive.

    This products active ingredient is Sulphamic acid and is safe to use in empty washing machines or dishwashers to clean them. The machines will have a rinse cycle to remove any significant residue from the Appliance during the cycle.

Bottom blade of my Bosch dishwasher does not rotate tried dishwasher cleaner, still no joy.

    The fault is usually caused by blockages or excess food residue built up in the spray arm holes. Other causes may be overloading dishes or a clogged filter or pump.

Answer this question

I have a front loading washing machine. Where do I pour the Washing Machine Limescale and Detergent Remover in the actual drum or the tray? I am not aware of what the 'bottom of the washing machine drum' actually is.

    Pour the descaler in the detergent drawer.

    This product will help clean all areas it is in contact with. As it is only in the drain hose a short time try dissolving another sachet into a jug of warm water and pouring slowly into the drain hose to allow a longer exposure to a concentrated solution.
