CLEANING AND DESCALING
To clean your pouch and bottle warmer
Unplug your pouch and bottle warmer and allow to cool before cleaning. After each use pour away remaining water by tipping it sideways over a sink. Wipe clean with a damp cloth only.
Do not clean with abrasive cleaners or allow to come into contact with solvents or harsh chemicals as this could cause damage.
To descale your pouch and bottle warmer
A build-up of limescale can negatively affect the performance of your warmer. To keep it working effectively we recommend carrying out the descaling process using these frequency guidelines:
Hard water – 7 days
Medium – 14 days
Soft – 21 days
You can find out your water quality via your water provider.
- Use a descaler that is suitable for use with stainless steel and use as per the manufacturer’s guidelines.
- Alternatively you can use white vinegar to descale your food and bottle warmer. Please use as per manufacturer’s guidelines.
- Once you have descaled your food and bottle warmer, run one warming cycle to clean it before using it for warming milk.
- You may need to repeat the descaling process if you find that limescale is still present.
DO NOT use metal objects or scourers to clean your food and bottle warmer. DO NOT use bleach to clean the food and bottle warmer. DO NOT use abrasive or anti-bacterial materials.
How do I descale?
Descaling is really easy to do, simply unplug your warmer and allow to cool before descaling. We recommend using a descaler that is suitable for use with stainless steel and following the manufacturer’s instructions. However, you can use white vinegar if you prefer.
How long does it take to warmer a bottle or a pouch?
This all depends on the size of the bottle or pouch and the temperature of the contents. It also depends on the temperature of the water you add to the warmer.
