Hi, i have a Bosch TDS2551GB steam generator iron. It needs descaling but I don't know how and there does not appear to be a descaling button. How do I proceed ?
Hi, Descaling is simply a process where the limestone that is deposited in any water cooking device is removed.
Have a look inside your electric kettle to see how much of a problem ypou have in your area.
If you have a serious problem & your kettle element is totally covered up with a whitish coating, I suggest you buy a can of commercial descaling agent.
If not, or iof you prefer home remedies, get a bottle of white vinegar.
Empty your kettle & pour a bit of vinegar onto the limestone. If it boils & foams, it is being dissolved. Replace the vinegar everytime it stops or slows down. Look at the results. You can speed it up by heating the kettle. Do not boil the kettle with vinegar. (Weak acid) Rather dilute it 50-50 I then boil. Or, just boi;l some water & throw it out. Then put the acid on. once you figuted out what process is suitable for getting rid of your areas's limestne, then applie your knowledge to your Bosh.
Just let the acid stand inside it overnight, or get more drastic if neccessary.
