We’ve mentioned before what hard water we have in our area and it causes havoc with our appliances. The kettle is not spared from the onslaught, especially as we use it a lot for mummy bean’s cups of tea and my bottles. So here’s how to descale your kettle without any fancy descalers, just plain old white vinegar.
- First of all make sure you’ve made bottles for your little bean has milk and mummy bean has a cup of tea.
- Fill the kettle half full with equal parts water and white vinegar.
- Boil the kettle.
- Leave for at least 20 mins
- Tip out water and rinse kettle thoroughly until you can’t smell the vinegar anymore.
- If the manufacturers of your kettle say you shouldn’t use vinegar, and some do, then use a squeeze of lemon and some slices of lemon as an alternative. Make sure you check first.
- Now you can admire your shiny new kettle. Better start in the pots next.
