That could be caused by hard water or the dishwasher is not rinsing and what you are seeing is soap residue. Home depot does free water analysis, if your water hardness is greater than 7 grains of hardness then it is hard water. There will also be white coat around the heating element

My bosch coffee machine says unit calcif what does this meen and how do i remove it


Calcif - means calcification detected. Calcification is calcium build up left in the machine that needs to cleaned off before it damages it. It looks like white build up that sticks to the sides of the unit and it can become hard & flaky.

There are many products that work to clean out your machine. Some people use white vinegar and let it brew in the machine the same way you would coffee to clean it out. Many places sell products to clean coffee machines like office supply stores or grocery stores. I can't think of one in specific to reccomend to you to clean your machine. I would suggest referring to your manual to see if it lists one in specific so that you do not void your warranty.

Machine says CALCIF What does it mean?


CALCIF usually indicates "calcification" which is a buildup of calcium and other minerals. I don't believe you would normally see this indication on a microwave oven. Coffeemakers often indicate mineral buildup by indicating "DESCALE" or similar.

Descaling or removing mineral deposits in a coffeemaker usually requires running the coffeemaker with white vinegar instead of water, and no coffee ground or filter. Three or four "brewings" is usually all that is needed to remove the deposits. Simply run several more brewing cycles of clean water to rinse all the internal components of any vinegar and the job is complete.

If this answer isn't applicable - please tell me model number of the appliance that is displaying the CALCIF message, otherwise, please rate my reply "4 thumbs up" if it was helpful Thanks!

White residue on black clothing


I am sure you did not wash dark clothes with white, right?

How old is the washing machine?
Do you feel/see any white particles in the basket of the machine, when the cover is open, and it dries out inside?-- when you wipe your hand inside (the dry machine), do you pick up white residue?

What type of soaps are you using?-- any chance they could be causing the residue?

How hard is your water? (Do you have a water softener in the water system?

Please tell us more about your circumstances.

My zojirushi electric air pot has significant calcification buildup inside. how do i clean it out?


Easy. Pour in a cup or two of white vinegar, add water to over the line of calcification, and plug it in! After the pot boils, pour out the solution and rinse with clear water.
