Cleaning the washing machine

Can I clean my washing machine with citric acid?

You might have heard that citric acid removes limescale and want to clean your washing machine with it. Unfortunately, this isn’t a good idea. Citric acid isn’t recommended for cleaning your washing machine. It attacks the rubber parts of the machine and causes faster wear.

Instead, use Bosch washing machine cleaner. This has been tested in Bosch washing machines and ensures optimal results.
