Special product feature
Citric acid being of food-grade quality it is better indicated than other acids for multi-purpose descaling in kitchen and sanitary areas, thanks to its unobtrusive odour and in virtue of its gentle effect on metal and plastics in kitchen and sanitary areas.
Ranges of application
The Decalcifier is to be used efficiently wherever heavy limescale deposit is encountered on fittings, tiles, toilets, cookware, coffee makers, washing machines, etc.
Application / Dosage**Use undiluted**
On fittings, tiles, toilets – where the Decalcifier cannot be heated – allow it to act for a few minutes, depending on the thickness of the limescale, then thoroughly rinse off with clear water.
On cookware and for decalcifying machines – where the acid can be heated and therefore is more effective.
Add approx. 100 ml (3.5 fl oz US) of Decalcifier to 0.5 litre (17 fl oz US) of water, heat up to approx. 60 °C (140 °F) , allow it to act for 20–30 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly.
Fill 200 ml (7 fl oz US) of Decalcifier and 800 ml (27 fl oz US) of water into the water container and descale according to the manufacturer's instructions. Afterwards run fresh water until the water is clear.
4.5 kg (10 lb) washing machine
Add 1 litre (34 fl oz US) of Decalcifier to the main washing cycle at 60 °C (140 °F) without previous loading and have the machine run one cycle. Afterwards remove the residues from the fluff sieve / filter of your washing machine.
Add 1 litre (34 fl oz US) of Decalcifier to the main washing cycle of the longest programme (once the pre-washing cycle is finished!) – with or without dishes. Let the programme run until the end.

Origin and properties of the ingredients The by-products, such as molasses, originating from the sugar industry, serve for obtaining citric acid. During descaling, the citric acid, thanks to its acidic property, acts upon the precipitated limescale, dissolving it again by releasing carbon dioxide.
Density: 20 °C approx.1.07 g / cm³, 68 °F approx. 0.038 oz / in³

Contains citric acid in food quality: Causes serious eye irritation. If medical advice is needed, have product container or label at hand. Keep out of reach of children. If in eyes: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/attention. Dispose of contents / container according to the local / national regulations.
Citric acid is a constituent of plant, animal and human organisms, and is therefore rapidly and completely degraded into carbon dioxide and water by naturally present microorganisms.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.
