    We use the descaling sachets from boots but beware - you need to make sure that you wipe out the residue really quickly as otherwise it turns to a really sticky orange that is hard to shift (found this out the hard way!).

    I added the normal amount of water, added the descaler and turned on. It lets of putrid steam so make sure LO nowhere near and the window/door open. When cooling start wiping out with kitchen towel. Then repeat with just plain water two or three times. A Hassle but comes out like new.

    white vinegar. covered the element, let it sit for 20 mins. I do it regularly though so there is never anything much to come off.

    Just checked today, Oust is what I have as well :) Not used it though, as I tend to wash out the steriliser every few times I use it, so there's not much build-up as of yet :)

    We used the sachets from boots. Just followed the instructions on the pack.

    Ladies who have the OUST, can you use it on the steraliser? I used some at work xmas week and it was awful, like a proper acid, stinks, bubbles up. Never noticed that you could use it on the steraliser, I would have said not.
