I have used normal satchets descalers before and never had any problem. This caused a major leak in my very expensive kettle! The bubbling descaler went everywhere on my kitchen counter and floor and corroded some of the varnish. What a disaster. Considering the price of these tablets, I was not happy.

A note from the team: We've checked this for you and for kettle use, it's recommended to fill the appliance up to the level of the scale, add 1-2 tablets per 1/2 litre of water then after they've dissolved heat the solution to no more than 50c to avoid the solution fizzing/boiling over. Allow to soak for approx.30 minutes then rinse thoughly with fresh water then discard the water.
Used these for the first time the other day on our kettle and they had it looking like new! Our kettle is only a couple of months old, but we live in a hard water area and the scale builds up very quickly. Will now be using these tablets monthly to prevent build up in the future.
