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.

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

    I have used the product in my washing machine and twice in quick succession in my dishwasher. My hope was that it would remove heavy limescale build up that is very visible on my dishwasher element. Unfortunately it did not do so, despite the double application. I cannot therefore judge the effectiveness of the product when used regularly to deal with light scaling. It just didn't touch thick crusted limescale.

    This is so easy to use and when the cycle has finished, the inside of the drum and the window sparkle. I use a 90 degree wash just to make sure. It also gets rid of soap & scum build up. Definately prolongs the life of washing machines
  • First time I have used this as already use a water softner

    I have not bothered with products such as these in the past, despite living in a very hard water area. We already have a water softener in place but over the years the dishwasher has built up scale and other residue. So I used this in both the dishwasher and washing machine. I cannot judge the comparison of the washing machine as it always seems fairly clean, but it worked really well for the dishwasher and has given it a great all round clean up. Will definitely use this for future cleans.

  • Q Mould on washing machine seal 1 Answer

    I have tries other cleaners. although not bleach as I feel this might rot the rubber. Is your washing machine cleaner able to remove the mould on washing machine seals that butt onto the drum?

      If you watch the video it does explain that it will remove the sludge and kill the bacteria. However if the seal is stained no product can remove this.

    I have got bits coming out on my washing ,its really bad can you give me any help about this ty gayle pelham

      You have not given much detail, any limescale or mould would wash away and the product does not damage the machine in any way so it is very unlikely to be coming from the cleaner. A common cause of little grey bits like when you use a pencil eraser on paper especially around the door seal is when the machine has caused some washing to rub on the seal during spin rubbing off some of the door seals surface. This can be caused by overloading, out of balance (especially on large drums like Hoover machines). Or even worn bearings which can also leave black oil marks on the washing.
