Have you ever poured a nice cup of tea and found little floaties on the top? Kettles get scale build up if they aren’t cleaned regularly. This sounds like a pretty gross problem, but fear not your kettle isn’t destined for the bin! Cleaning your kettle naturally is super simple.

3 common household products are here to rescue your scungy kettle. Best part is it requires very little effort on your part!

3 Simple Ways To Clean Your Kettle

1. Citric Acid

Fill the kettle with water and boil. Once boiled stir a tablespoon of citric acid into the water and let it sit for 15 – 30 mins depending on the level of scale build up. Rinse and repeat if needed.

2. Lemons

Cut a lemon in half, or more if required to fit into the kettle, and place into a kettle full of water. Being careful not to go above your ‘max’ water line. Boil the kettle and leave to sit for an hour or so. Rinse and repeat with a new lemon if some buildup remains.

3. White Vinegar

Pour a cup of white vinegar into the kettle and top up with water. Boil the kettle and allow to sit for 30-40 minutes. Rinse and repeat if some buildup still remains.

And its clean!

Choose which ever recipe works best for what you have on hand at the time, just be sure to thoroughly rinse your kettle to ensure only water remains.
