For excessive staining use of household stain or scale remover is recommended. To remove difficult stains fill your flask with hot water, add one teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and secure cap. Soaking overnight produces excellent results. Always rinse before re-use. this is from http://www.thermos.co.uk/care.php
my hubby used it as he uses his thermos daily... so goodluck!

I filled the water tank half with descaling solution (less diluted than normal - probably it was double or tripple strength) and restarted the machine several times. It kept on showing E05 each time, but it took in a small sip of the descaling, so I waited some ours and restarted it 3 times more. And repeated this for several times for 2 days. When I had almost given up, after 15-20 restarts, it primed and I could run a full descale. I forgot to weigh how much decaling it took in by each restart, that would have been nice to be able to post.
E05 means "Water circuit blocked. No water in flow meter or flow meter not turning (jammed)".
Since I got it when I had not descaled for a month, I poured in tripple strength descale in the water container, and restarted the machine 3 times. Noticed that it took in a small gulp of the descale. Waited hours. Restarted 3 times again. Waited... and after about 20 restarts over 2 days. When I almost had given up it primed and was able to do a normal descaling.
I forgot to weigh how many grams of descaled it took in after each restart. That would have been nice for troubleshooting.
