  • Publication number: 20220000329
    Abstract: A method for removing stains, in particular tea stains, during a cleaning cycle of a household appliance, such as a dishwashing machine. The cleaning cycle comprises at least a main wash cycle. A cleaning agent is released during the main wash cycle when the temperature inside the household appliance during the main wash cycle exceeds a predetermined temperature threshold, the threshold being higher than about 40° C., for example higher than about 55° C.
