Subject: Descaling Ama Milano
 

PLEASE...somebody help! I have used clean caf and citric acid to clean and descale the inside of the boiler of my Ama Milano. I've soaked it for about 4 hours total, with new solution after an hour. Should I mix up the solution extra strong? It advises 1 packet to 1 quart of water. It's better, but still flaky gunk coming out in the basket. When I look down in there with a flashlight, it looks a lot cleaner than it was, but the flakes just won't stop! They are not hard, like mineral deposit...they are soft and can be dissolved when you rub them between your fingers. Is there a brush that will reach down there? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
