Scale in household appliances

In appliances that use water you will have scale over time, which reduces their performance and for example the coffee may not taste as good any more. Scale can also develop in washing machines and dishwashers and ultimately this affects their lifespan, particularly if you don't deal with it. You can prevent major problems by maintaining your washing machine or dishwasher properly.
