    Just in the process of cleaning my Truma boiler with Aquastar 1 after a 4 month trip to Spain. Happened to read the back of the packet, it's 99% citric acid.
    Cost of the Aquastar £20 quid for 500g, Citric acid on Amazon about £5 for 1 kilo.
    Has anyone used citric acid?

    I use it in my Truma Boiler and Thetford Cassette. It works well for me.

    does the same as white vinegar, which after all is ascetic acid. so dissolves any limescale etc

    Yup, I used to use vinegar but it is hard to completely get rid of the smell. Citric acid no problems for some reason. I found this out on my kettle.
