Descaling with Vinegar?

Descaling your Tassimo with Vinegar?

No, probably not a good idea. Descaling your tassimo with vinegar can damage your tassimo. There are many websites that say that you can use vinegar. But the manufacturer Bosch claims it can really damage your tassimo. So it is not recommended that you use vinegar. Should you use vinegar and the Tassimo is damaged then it’s on you.

The big problem with using white vinegar to clean your coffeemmaker like a Tassimo is that vinegar itself, while utterly harmless to people, can actually quite be acidic and capable of damaging your Tassimo’s sensitive parts. This is solved by simply watering down vinegar at a proportion of one part vinegar to two parts water.

For instance, mixing 1 cup of vinegar with 2 cups of water would make a cleansing fluid that is utterly effective at descaling and cleaning as any Tassimo cleaning disc.

The method is simply, run your vinegar-water mix through your coffee maker just as you would regular water. Run the vinegar-water mix to make a full pot of coffee or cup of coffee, depending on your brewer. Do this once, and then run the brewer two more times with regular water to rinse out any residual vinegar.
