You can use vinegar which is more environmental friendly and also more cost effective.

You can use citric acid instead of vinegar, more powerful and no smell.

Smell by vinegar would go away after a few rinses

Any recommendation on where to buy citric acid? I hesitate to make it myself. Thanks.

I got it for $12 and change in the warehouse. Doesn't seem to be available in the regular warehouses though.

Works well with two heaping tablespoons in my Zojirushi water boiler.

Large bottle but cheaper per gram than anywhere else by far (Amazon, Walmart, places that sell pickling/jam-making supplies)

You are supposed to rinse a couple more times anyway either with chemical, vinegar or even citric acid. Therefore, it does not matter - JMHO. But as said, stay away from the chemical is the real deal.

This stuff is mostly just overpriced citric acid + salt anyway.

I use white vinegar,
Needs about 10 rinse to get the small away.

But water and white vinegar doesn't cost me $10, that small solution does.

Thanks I always buy the descaling solution as I thought I have to, shoot. I used about 3 bottles over the past few years while I have 1kg of citric acid in the kitchen cabinet doing almost nothing.

Many manufacturers now recommend lactic acid based descaler.

Or should I just throw the powder into the water tank and let it do it's thing? I guess it's better to mix it beforehand.
You just mix 1 packet with 32oz of water. Pour into machine and do it's descaling cycle. 3 packets per box.

I usually buy Dezcal.

Amazon has the 7oz Dezcal packet, for $4.70.

Considering the small single use packets are 1oz each for 1L of water, I mix at the same ratio for home grade machines.

So each 7oz packet is good for up to 7L (or 7 cleanings). Less if you prefer a little stronger (if you tend to ignore cleaning cycles sometimes, or have a commercial machine. So it comes out to about $1 per cleaning cycle pretty much.

Ingredients: Citric Acid

So if you can't find it in bulk anywhere, then this is a perfect and relatively cheap alternative.
