Question about Braun Tassimo Coffee Maker
Can you use CLR to descale your machine
My Bosch manual is very specific: DO NOT USE VINEGAR! They recommend you use any commercial coffee machine descaler.
CLR recommends itself for the job and the Jellmar website has instructions.

CLR is kinda harsh... I Would try white Vinegar first... and take your time... you got all day...
I would worry about CLR breaking down the lime deposits and leaving sediment that may still get caught... and your ability to NOT get the taste out... let alone the possibility of an unwanted corrosive action...

In order to keep your Tassimo machine
operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three
months. Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell
coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to
descale your Tassimo machine is intended for this specific use only. Mix
the descaling product directly in the water container, following the
instructions provided on the descaling packaging. Then replace the water
container on the machine. Place a large cup or mug on the cup stand,
insert the cleaning disc, bar code down and close the brew mechanism. As
soon as the AUTO light illuminates, press and release the start/stop
button. This will fill the brew cycle with descaling solution. Empty the
cup and let the machine stand for 15 minutes. Then open the brew
mechanism and close it again, leaving the cleaning disc in place. Repeat
this step two more times for maximum descaling effectiveness.
Discard the remaining descaling agent from the water
container, rinse it well and refill with fresh, cold water. Clean the
machine by flushing water through it in the same manner and emptying the
cup as it fills. Make sure that all the descaling solution has been
completely rinsed away, and then flush two full water containers through
the machine before using it again. Remove the cleaning disc, rinse and
refill the water container and your Tassimo machine is ready to use.
Also, before you descale your Tassimo machine, always unplug it. Also,
never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive
cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Tassimo
machine. This method works for most espresso machines,
including some of these popular models: the DeLonghi Magnifica
EAM3200S, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400,
Gaggia 74507BCN Classic, Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi
PrimaDonna ESAM6600, the BC0255 DeLonghi coffee machine and the Krups Nespresso CititZ XN 7006.
