How to clean limescale in the kettle

The main reason for the appearance of scale in the kettle is the quality of tap water. Calcium and magnesium dissolve in water, and when it boil, limescale or calcium carbonate forms, settling on the walls and negatively affecting the taste of water, tea, and coffee. However, even filtered water will not solve the problem of limescale on the heating element.

For cleaning the kettle, acidic ingredients such as citric acid or baking soda work best. The Express has a story on how to remove scale from a kettle in 15 minutes.

Nick Small, an appliance expert, shared some tips on how to clean a kettle. According to him, limescale can even affect the quality of the appliance and cause several breakdowns.

"The most effective way to remove any unwanted limescale is to prepare a special solution," the expert said.

The necessary ingredients are:

  • Baking oda
  • Water

Step 1: Mix two glasses of water and one tablespoon of baking soda in a container.

Step 2: Pour the solution into the kettle and boil it.

Step 3: Do not pour out the baking soda solution immediately after boiling. Let it cool inside the kettle for another 15 minutes.

Finally, rinse the kettle with cold water and use a sponge to remove any limescale residue. Wipe the surface with a dry cloth.

You can also use citric acid or the juice of one lemon. The acid in its composition will dissolve limescale well and disinfect the kettle. Read more about the method in the article.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL said that in the absence of regular and proper washing, pathogenic bacteria and germs can accumulate in the tea spout. Usually, it is simply rinsed with water, because no rag or sponge will fit inside. However, it's better to try an effective tip that will help you instantly clean the dirt.
