SOURCE: How to remove and clean milk out of espresso water tank :-(

NO the tank is just that a tank and you cant get into it to clean....there are many products for cleaning your coffee pot. Some coffee brewing cleaning products are made by Urnex.Buy mixing a half cup (1/2 cup as i assume espresso meaning a small tank the more vinegar you use the more cycles you'll need to remove) of vinegar with the rest water and brew once or twice 2-3 times or until its right to you.

How do you clean inside the machine I clean the filters every wash but I get a lot of grime in the wash on our clothes


Dianne, If you live in a hard water area, there is probably a buildup of scale in the machine. You are going to need something acidic to dissolve it.
A whole Kg of citric acid would not be to much and might do the trick, You should be able to find it cheaply at an online auction. Scale can be quite extensive,,, Just throw the citric acid crystals in dry and put it on an empty boil with no pre wash,,, I would switch it off at the plug once the water in the machine is nice and hot and just let sit for about 24 hours to give time for the scale to dissolve.
Plug it back in and if it dose not start where it left off put it on to either drain or spin. Citric acid is a fruit acid and not at all toxic,,, you can go ahead and use the washer without running a second empty wash
Scale can be very problematic in many areas of the UK, including London.

How to use acid citric to clean a thermal 5lr boiler


Use CLR or white vinegar. If it is a plumbed in unit, there is usually a small bypass tank at the rear and a crossover valve where you put the descaler and then run the cycle. On others, you fill the water tank and run the descale program.

The amount of Citric Acid you would need is prohibitive, CLR is a better product.

CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover is a powerful formula that quickly and easily dissolves and removes tough calcium and lime deposits as well as surface rust stains from bathtubs, toilet bowls, sinks, glass, chrome, fiberglass, stainless steel, most coffee makers, humidifiers, dishwashers, washing machines and ...

How do I get hold of a manual for my Genesis Jet Steam Cleaner... moved 4 times in 3 years and cannot find mine. Haven't used it in these 4 years and cannot remember what the citric acid is for... ple


I checked the verimark web site and unfortunately they don't provide access to manuals for their products... Steam cleaners generally are pretty simple, fill them with clean (preferably distilled or demineralized water) and use the stem to clean. Occasionally the heating tank can be cleaned with a weak acid to remove deposits - typically I use acetic acid (vinegar) but I guess a citric acid solution would work as well.

Machine drains thoroughly but holds water under th drum and is smelling dmap


This is normal with new units and should be remedied before mormal use.
The factory tests the drain pumps but the hoses are not evacuated thouroghly. The small amount of water left inside the hose (1or 2 ounces) cannot evaporate while packed inside the shipping containers somold or mildue grows in the drain tube while traveling overseas.
Clean the unit with a washing machine cleaner. You may be crafty enough to apply a more thorough cleaning with a lint brush through the drain hose but the first solution should work.
You can also buy citric acid in granular form for cooking. Use 1 oz in the tub and run a low water level quick rinse. Citric acid is used to clean coffee pots as well.

Can I use citric acid to clean out the limescale from my coffee pot? It looks horrible and is starting to affect the taste of my coffee.


Limescale needs something stronger than basic dish soap to remove it. Citric acid and vinegar are both very good products for cleaning coffee pots. Using a ratio of about one part citric acid to 20 parts water, brew the pot of coffee as you normally would. After that, do another 2 cycles of 'brewing' using just plain water. This should clean your coffee pot out nicely. Good luck.

Kitchenaid dishwasher rust spots


Hello -

The cause of the stains on the interior of your dishwasher may be the water. Do you know if you have hard water, water with a high mineral content? If so, do you know if the water has a high iron or maganese content?

If you have hard water in your home water supply and do not have a water softener, check the owner's manual for your dishwasher - the Troubleshooting section - to see if there is mention of stains on the interior of the dishwasher.

+++
From the American Cleaning Institute web page on Automatic Dishwashers:
http://www.cleaninginstitute.org/clean_living/automatic_dishwashing_problems.aspx#Yellow
Yellow / Brown Stains

Causes:
Iron or manganese content in water supply.

Solutions:
After food soil is removed, wash dishes with citric acid crystals. Check dishwasher manufacturer's instructions for amount to use and method. Do not add detergent.

A liquid product is available to remove iron deposits from the dishwasher interior; follow the package instructions.

To retard staining, use maximum amount of dishwasher detergent to keep iron or manganese in suspension during the wash. Use a rinse additive during the rinse.

Preventative Measures:
If staining cannot be controlled, the only solution is in the installation of iron removal equipment in the home water supply.
+++

Some solutions to the interior staining problem recommend the addition of citric acid crytals to the covered section of the dishwasher detergent dispenser. If you do that, be sure you do not have any sterling silver or silver plate tableware in the dishwasher. (Those items are best washed by hand, anyway.) Citric acid will cause pits on sterling silver and silver plate. Note: Some dishwasher detergents and dish liquids have citric acid in their formulations - check the ingredients.

Best wishes.

Black type residue being left on clothes



Hi there,

This is a common problem on washing machines, if you predominantly do cold washes.

Over a period of time, a washing machine will accumulate a buildup of Soap Scum (excess soap & softener residue) which can stick to the inside of the drum.

This black coloured soap scum occasionally breaks away from the drum, and attaches to the clothing fabric during the wash cycle.

You can rectify this, by doing the following:

Firstly, purchase a packet of CITRIC ACID from your local grocery store (usually found in the baking isle).

Do the following procedure before going to bed:

1) Do a HOT WASH without clothes (Hi water level, with HOT water) - allow machine to fill with hot water, then add the CITRIC ACID to the water. Allow the machine to complete a FULL wash cycle (i.e. allow machine to agitate for 30 mins or so, then drain).

2) Fill the machine again with the HOT water / CITRIC ACID solution, but this time allow it to sit in the bowl overnight (no cycle).

3) Next morning, set machine to spin & drain (i.e. to empty the solution)

4) Set machine to fill with FRESH HOT WATER ONLY (no citric acid), then set machine to spin & drain. This will flush all remaining residue left in the bowl.

Note: Soap scum residue is caused by using excess detergent/fabric softener. Hot Water flushing should be done every 6 months.

Contrary to what the detergent manufacturers state, you should follow Samsung's instructions by using HALF the recommended detergent.

Samsung machines prefer LOW SUDS, and you may find by reducing the amount of detergent used, you may even eliminate the buildup of soap scum.
