How to properly descale your coffee maker

No matter how your machine brews your favorite coffee. It has to taste good! And the more your machine rumbles and rattles during preparation, the worse it tastes. Then it's high time for descaling. With our culiclean descaling tablets, you can do this quickly and easily. The tablets leave no chemical residue after the descaling process, and after proper descaling and rinsing, your coffee maker is immediately ready for use again!

Which machine? Which brand?

Regardless of the way your coffee maker brews your favorite coffee, sooner or later it will want to be descaled: Capsule machine, pad machine, coffee machine, fully automatic coffee machine, coffee pod machine, espresso machine, coffee maker, portafilter machine, integrated fully automatic coffee machine - they all want to be limescale-free.

Here we go

Be sure to read the operating instructions for your coffee maker in advance and follow the equipment manufacturer's instructions for the descaling process.

Step 1

Fill tap water into the water tank of your coffee machine (Observe the MAX filling-level marking!)

Step 2

Now add 1 tablet per 500 ml of water to the water tank.

Step 3

Once the tablets have dissolved, turn on the machine and run the solution through the machine. Your coffee machine may have its own descaling program – see operating instructions).

Tip: Catch the descaling solution that has run through with a container that is also to be descaled or fill it into such a container afterwards. This way, you can also descale your kettle or your favorite carafe at the same time.

Step 4

Afterwards, start several cycles, each time with fresh tap water.

Step 5

Now your machine is ready for good coffee again. And so are you!

Tip: Mark the descaling of your coffee machine as a recurring task in your calendar. That way, you won't forget to descale and your coffee will remain delicious!
