    Recently I used vinegar to clean my Avent steriliser and found that the rubber components of the pump accessories that I sterilised turned a yellowish-tinge [​IMG] Is this the correct way to clean the steriliser? I feel that using water to rinse the steriliser is not sufficient.

    adelia,
    if i am not wrong, for Avent steriliser, they do not advise the use of vinegar. Supposed to buy the de-scaler salt from the Avent service centre. Usually after I de-scale (for my avent milk warmer), I will run 1-2 rounds in normal tap water to ensure that the de-scale product is properly washed out. De-scale only do it once in a while... [​IMG]

    As for the rubber parts of pump accessories. Just to share that for Medela, the soft shields should not be sterilised. My Avent pump, the petals did turn yellow gradually after several rounds of sterilising. It's normal.

    Hope the above helps.

    I saw someone posted in another forum saying that we can get the critic acid from daiso to de scale the sterilizer....

    Hi Wonderful parents!

    I am a student currently doing a research analysis on the milk bottle industry in Singapore. I would really appreciate if you guys could help me fill in the following survey.

    It would really aid me in understanding and also help you know more about other milk bottles in the industry. [​IMG] thank you.

    I have a similar steriliser. Purchase critic acid powder on ebay and follows the instruction on the steriliser's manual. I heard there are people using lemon.

    Oh ya.. my pump accessories went a bit out of shape after sterilising.... [​IMG]

    Was advised also by Avent steriliser promoter to use white vinegar and mixed with water 1:3 portion to clean the stains off the sterliser. Have not try it though..

    I bought the citric acid powder from Avent office Philip at Toa Payoh.. per pack $2. I think use the original citric acid powder safer..

    Yeah, I use the same method as Puteh, using few slice of lemon with some water and switch on the sterilizer and it does the job! I used diluted white vinegar before too, but I don't like the smell. Still prefer the natural lemon fragant. [​IMG]
