Descaling Dr Brown’s Bottle Sterilizer Made Easy

Descaling your bottle sterilizer is probably one of the most tedious household chores, but it’s necessary every once in a while to keep your baby bottles and other feeding accessories clean and safe. If you’re looking for an easy way to descale your Dr. Brown’s bottle sterilizer without wanting to throw it out the window, look no further! Here are some tips and tricks that will make this task a breeze!

The Importance of Descaling

Before we dive into how to descale, let us first understand why it’s vital.

Minerals in hard water can build up quickly inside appliances, leaving stains or deposits all over heating elements or on dishes/clothes -- even on babies' items like their feeding bottles/. Calcium and magnesium minerals found in tap water form scaly residue overtime when heated up repeatedly after getting stuck onto heating surfaces where liquid gets evaporated during regular machine usage cycles.

When these minerals aren’t addressed at the right time with decalcification techniques like vinegar solutions specially formulated for use within appliance cleaning processes; they may impair equipment functions (inability to heat/warm food/bottles) thus posing health risks.

By regularly descaling timely (usuallyonce per month), we’re ensuring proper functioning and guaranteeing our bottles have been properly cleaned by eliminating any bacteria sitting atop mineral layers trapped beneath.

Materials You’ll Need:

Here are some things that you’ll need before starting your process:

  • A bottle brush
  • White Vinegar
  • Water

White vinegar is not only non-toxic but also has great antibacterial properties which makes it ideal for removing scaling from appliances used daily like ours here today.

Step-by-Step Descale Process

Now that you know just how critical regular buildup removal is, here's an easy-to-follow step-by-step tutorial:

Step 1: Unplug and Empty Sterilizer

First, unplug your Dr. Brown's sterilizer from the electric socket and dump out all water/remaining fluids.

Step 2: Disassemble Parts

Next, turn off power buttons or switches (on auto clean mode) then completely disassemble the trays and other removable parts like basket covers, heat guard tubing any additional accessories found in it.

Pro tip: be sure to take notes on which order things are removed or simply get yourself a camera before taking apart the pieces to ensure smooth rebuilding

Step 3: Soak in Vinegar Solution

Add water [to max fill line] within each heating chamber then vinegar distilled according instructions on package label. Let everything soak for about an hour give/take depending on just how crusty/oncaked- with mineral buildup- portions appear.

For heavily scaled appliances preferable soaking solution ration is 1 cup of apple cider vinegar + 4 cups of warm tap water.

Step 4: Scrub Trays & Accessories

After fifty-fifty (50/50) view of clear base vs non transparent' cloudy' stone formation evidence? Time to brush/sponge out remaining scale where visible! Use soft bristles/cloth materials when scrubbing; No abrasive cleaners should be used as they can damage surfaces making them more susceptible future deposits clinging onto our appliances point blank period!

Additional Tips To Carry Out Swift Scale Formation Prevention:

Now that you've successfully descaled your Dr. Brown's Bottle Sterilizer with this easy step by step guide let us share some tips that will help prevent scaling anytime soon!
