Keep your cuppa tasting great. Get rid of limescale with this quick and easy way to clean a kettle.
Cleaning the kettle?! I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again – we don’t want cleaning to be complicated, we want it to be easy. The kettle has to be one of the most used appliances in the kitchen. As a mum, I know I have spent many a day turning the kettle on to make a cuppa, forgotten about and turned it on again, and again, so mine has definitely gotten a workout over the years! Lime scale builds up in the bottom of most kettles, and although it can be disgusting to look at it’s easy to get rid of. Cleaning the kettle is super easy and you don’t need an expensive cleaner – all you need is a lemon! That’s right, the humble lemon can descale a kettle and get it looking like new again.
Let’s give our kettles a clean, it’s easy!
- You will need a whole lemon
- Roll the whole lemon on the bench to help get all the juice inside loose
- Cut the lemon in half
- Fill kettle with water
- Put both lemon pieces inside the kettle
- Boil the kettle and let it sit for 30 minutes with lemons inside
- Give it a quick scrub with a kitchen scrubbing brush and your kettle will look good as new!
Do you use lemon as a cleaner for anything else?
