I have already started the habit of running through the washing machine on hot with a plastic ball full of vinegar. Is there anything similar that I can do with the washing machine? I can already see a white coating on the elements at the bottom.
Hi MrsTittleMouse, you can buy a descaler for washing machines in supermarkets, I use Waitroses own, works fine. Alternatively you can buy one where you add the descaler powder to every wash - this prevents your clothes from getting hard as well, so you need less fabric conditioner.
