Any kettle, whether electric or not, is subject to lime-scale build up.
This isn’t anything dangerous and limescale isn’t bad for your health, however, it can cost you money in the long run and a good brew in the short run.
Limescale, a build-up of both calcium carbonate and magnesium from hard water, can cause your kettle to underperform. This is because the more limescale there is built-up, the more time it takes for your kettle to boil, and because of this the kettle’s longevity and efficiency can be reduced. Remember; your kettle is having to work longer and harder to boil your water in and amongst the hard, crystalline substance!
When cleaning a lime-scaly kettle, most people believe it takes a lot of time and with the wrong tools this is true. However, the method we’re about to teach you isn’t just great for the environment but it’s great for banishing intense scrubbing that you may sometimes find yourself doing with harsh detergents.
5 simple steps
What you’ll find particularly great about this method of descaling is that the tools you use, you will more than likely already have in your house. What tools, you ask? Either a lemon or white vinegar will do the trick, however, we do prefer the latter as it’s less fuss.
Simply grab the vinegar from the back of the cupboard, fill a jug with water from the tap and have your kettle lid open ready to treat your scaly kettle with the below method.
