    Hi

    Agghh I think I must've thrown the instructions for my Tommy Tippee electric steriliser away and I do remember it saying to clean it every 4 wks so I think I ought to clean it now.

    Does anyone have one of these sterilisers or similar brand and know how to clean it/how much citric acid to use? It didn't come with any citric acid so I'll have to buy some - does Boots sell it ?

    Thanks

    Lucy

    It's the same stuff used to de-scale kettles so it can be any brand, should be easy to get hold of ;)

    You can also look up your brand of steriliser on google and perhaps see the manual there. I've done it for lots of things, stereos, washing machines, my cooker hood - all the stuff you lose manuals to. We have most of our manuals in the same drawer but sometimes they get thrown out with the box!
