Descaling solution for espresso machines (and coffee makers)

NYChristopher | Jan 16, 2007 06:26 PM

I hadn't used my espresso machine in quite some time (DeLonghi EC-701) and I thought that before I make some espresso, I'd best give it a thorough cleaning and a descaling.

My question is about descaling solutions/liquids.

I don't wish to pay $14 a bottle for my next pre-bought solution.

I've also read about the problems with using vinegar in espresso machines.

Does anyone have any experience with a homemade citric acid solution? What was your "recipe"?

Thanks!
