Our top tips for keeping your kettle sparkling clean.

Have you been using your kettle for a few months and it has never occurred to you to clean it? This is because your device is full of white spots that can alter the taste of your hot drinks.

Why don’t you decide to clean your teapot? It is a very simple cleaning process and you can also use several grandma’s tricks to restore the shine to your device.

To prepare coffee or tea, we usually heat water. It is not necessary to turn on the kettle as it is the perfect device to heat water in a short time.

However, over time, scale and residue can build up on the interior walls of the kettle, making it appear opaque and translucent.

If you do not clean your device, limescale and deposits can compromise its operation and increase energy consumption. It also affects the taste of your favorite hot drinks.

That’s why experts recommend washing the kettle regularly. More precisely every two weeks or once a month. Below are some traditional methods to restore your kettle to its former glory.

White wine vinegar

To remove limescale and lime deposits, grandma’s trick is to use white vinegar. To do this, fill the kettle with one part vinegar and two parts water.

Then boil the solution. Let it sit for 10 minutes and discard the contents. Next, rinse the kettle by boiling the water twice in a row. Then leave the device in the air.

sodium bicarbonate

If you don’t like the strong smell of white vinegar, you can clean the kettle with baking soda.

To do this, we recommend proceeding as with vinegar, but replacing the yeast with vinegar. After cleaning, rinse twice.

lemon juice or citric acid

Citric acid is also a great ally when you want a super clean teapot. To do this, mix 2 tablespoons of citric acid in 1 liter of water and leave it in the kettle for about 3 hours.

Empty the kettle and rinse it twice with boiling water. If you don’t have citric acid, use lemon juice diluted in 1 liter of water.
