    Espresso machine cleaner for descale?

    Hi all. I have been told that I can use my espresso machine cleaner to descale, is this correct? The container only gives instructions to clean using the porta filter. I was told I can dissolve the powder in the tank and run it through the steam wand. Cleaning a Silvia. Thanks, Steve.

    Two different processes/chemicals Steve, use a product like Cafetto Restore or similar to descale.

    As Yelta said, "Two different processes/chemicals ..." and they are not interchangeable.

    You might want to check in the manual whether it is recommended to run descaler through the milk frother wand. For my machine, it specifically advises against it.
