Cleaning the washing machine

Can I clean my washing machine with vinegar?

You might have heard that electrical appliances can be descaled or cleaned with vinegar and want to use it on your washing machine. We advise you not to do this. Vinegar is not recommended because it causes too much damage to the rubber parts in the machine.

We advise you to use the Bosch recommended washing machine cleaner. We’ve tested it in Bosch washing machines and are convinced that it provides optimum cleaning results. That way, you’ll have prolonged enjoyment with your washing machine.
