Remove limescale with natural active ingredients

Removing limescale naturally is my thing

Coffee machines or electric kettles: limescale deposits are formed each time water is heated in the appliance. Over time, these deposits can damage the appliance. With blocked pipes, a scaled-up appliance requires significantly more energy to heat up water. It also has an impact on hygiene: dirt and germs love to stick to the irregular limescale surface.

Frequent descaling is worth the effort. Use HEITMANN limescale removers for particularly thorough, gentle, and food-safe descaling. Because besides being very powerful, they also use only natural active ingredients.

I do not want to apply chemicals to remove limescale. Nature has devised something clever for me to use instead. I thus prefer HEITMANN limescale removers for my coffee machine and kettle. They help me remove limescale in no time. No blocked pipes, delicious coffee, and it requires less energy too. And all thanks to natural acids. There you go.

What do you want to descale?

These pod machines and fully automated appliances are truly high-tech. For something this special I use the Special Limescale Remover. It has been endurance tested by HEITMANN on all common models. It works perfectly, uses only natural active ingredients, and is cost-efficient at the same time. So you see, something like this really does exist.

HEITMANN Special Limescale Remover (active ingredients: lactic and gluconic acid)

HEITMANN Special Limescale Remover allows you to easily, quickly, and safely descale the machine.

Please refer to the instruction manual of the machine manufacturer:

  • for limescale removal and rinse cycle
  • for frequency of limescale removal

Before descaling and rinsing, remove the water filter (if present) and replace once the process is complete.

Descaling and rinsing machines with limescale removal programme (automatic limescale removal)

  1. Add the contents of HEITMANN Special Limescale Remover (250 ml) to the water tank.
  2. Dilute with the amount of tap water recommended in the instruction manual for the machine, or fill the tank with tap water until the limescale removal programme can be started.
  3. Run the limescale removal programme according to the instruction manual for the machine.
  4. Place a container large enough to catch the liquid under the outlet. Caution: liquid is hot!
  5. Once descaling is complete, rinse the water tank with water, and run one or more rinse programmes according to the instruction manual for the machine.

Descaling and rinsing machines without limescale removal programme

  1. Add the contents of HEITMANN Special Limescale Remover (250 ml) to the water tank.
  2. Dilute with the same quantity of tap water (250 ml) using the empty limescale remover container as measurement.
  3. Allow the solution to run through the coffee spout. If the solution does not run through (insufficient quantity in water tank), fill the tank with tap water until it starts.
  4. Place a container large enough to catch the liquid under the outlet. Caution: liquid is hot!
  5. After descaling, rinse the water tank with tap water. Finally flush out the machine with one or two full tanks of tap water.
