Works better than vinegar: how to clean limescale in a kettle
Lime scale in the kettle is formed due to calcium and magnesium minerals in hard water. This has a negative effect not only on the taste of drinks, but also on the shelf life of the device, so you need to clean it regularly.
You don't need to buy chemical means to remove stubborn plaque, you only need one natural ingredient. OBOZREVATEL found an effective way that will help to cope with this.
If you have hard water and unwanted white scale often forms in the kettle, you need to clean it once or twice a month.
For this purpose, you will need citric acid. This is an effective mixture in fighting resistant dirt that will not damage the appliance.
Pour half a kettle of water and add two tablespoons of acid. You may see the water start to fizz, this is because the powder has reacted with the lime scale.
Next, turn on the appliance and wait for the water to boil. Then pour out the liquid and rinse the kettle under running water. It is not necessary to leave the device with the solution for some time, it is enough that the water has boiled. Citric acid will quickly cope with such contamination.
You can also use lemon juice, but the acid has a stronger effect. To completely remove the plaque with the help of lemon, you need to repeat such a procedure several times.
