How often should I descale my washing machine

How often should I descale my washing machine?

How often you should descale your washing machine depends on how hard the water is and the detergent used. We recommend using the washing machine cleaner developed specially for the purpose every 3 months.

Please follow the instructions for the cleaner. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy the feeling of hygienically clean clothes for longer.
