    Default Avent electric sterilisers

    On the side it says to clean with citirc acid, but i've had no luck finding it?

    Any ideas? If you don't have citric acid what do you use?

    Citric acid is the one from citrus fruits, so maybe try a squeeze of lemon?

    Thanks Fi, it's actually the stuff that makes bath bombs fizz, but I can't locate it anywhere. I did try diluted vinegar, but it still smells so I've stopped using it LOL.

    I have a similar sterilizer.. in the book it says to use either a 10gms sachet of citric acid with 200mls water or 100mls vinegar with 200 mls water.

    I have the exact steriliser.... you find citric acid in the baking section at your local supermarket, it is next to baking powder!
