Protect your dishwasher and washing machine from harmful build-up with eSpares Limescale & Detergent Remover. If you find your washing machine and/or dishwasher aren't performing as well as they should be it could be due to a build-up of limescale and detergent. This product will descale and cleanse the machines, removing limescale, detergent and grease build-up and restore them to top working condition.

Suitable for use in all makes and models.

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

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

    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.

  • Q Is breakdown of electronic programme panel due to limescale? 1 Answer

    We are in a hard water area but have a topped-up water softener. Our washing machine hadn't had a problem in 9 years, then just died. Could limescale be the problem or does this just 'happen'? Thank you

      The heater element may fail as a result of limescale and possibly blow a fuse but the control panel itself is not effected by limescale.

  • Q Why is the product not suitable for top loading machines ? 1 Answer

    By Richard Smithson - London - 09 March 2015

    • A
      It is possible over time limescale could build up on the drum shaft and slightly wear the seal to accept the thickening. If this were dissolved and removed it could lead to leaking. Therefore this warning has been added.
