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.

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

  • 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?

    By Linda - 01 August 2014

    • A
      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.

  • Q hi been useing your descaler 1 Answer

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

    By gayle - poole - 29 July 2014

    • A
      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.
