SOURCE: how much bicarb of soda do i use to descale my bosch tassimo

Sodium bicarbonate is not a descaling product. It makes a nice minimally abrasive cleaning agent when mixed as a paste. Sodium ions will exchange with calcium in a water softener when the calcium is dissolved in water. Once the calcium salt (calcium carbonate) forms, it doesn't go back into solution in a neutral or basic environment. A bicarbonate solution will be basic.

Descaling requires an acid. The Tassimo products say "Do not use vinegar" (acetic acid). I suspect they use citric acid in their descaling product. You can try the lemon-flavored Kool-aid (the version packaged in the envelopes that needs a sweetener added when it's a drink). Mix 1 tablespoon of the powder in 1 pint of water. However, you'll need to make more than a pint of the solution since you need 500 ml of liquid per cleaning cycle. (1 pint is ~473 ml.)

I hope this helps.
