Cleaning the washing machine

How can I clean my washing machine with household products?

You’d like some tips on cleaning your washing machine as gently as possible, perhaps using household products? Essentially, the approach is very commendable. Nevertheless, we advise using the Bosch recommended washing machine cleaner. We’ve tested it in Bosch washing machines and are convinced that it provides optimum cleaning results.

We advise you not to clean your washing machine with household products. Cleaning products that contain acid or vinegar can attack the rubber parts of your appliance. Primarily, make sure that you use the right amount of washing detergent. Please see the detergent manufacturer’s instructions.
