It’s only a matter of time before limescale builds up inside. That’s why it’s important to clean your kettle regularly to extend its service life. We’ve put together an easy guide for cleaning your kettle with vinegar or citric acid.
How to Clean a Kettle with Vinegar
If you’d like to choose the eco-friendly way, you should clean your kettle using vinegar. How do you do it? Pour 200 ml of vinegar into the kettle and add the same amount of water. Turn on the kettle and bring the water with the vinegar to boil.
Don’t pour out the boiling water right away. Leave it in the kettle for at least 15 minutes. If the limescale is too strong, leave the vinegar and water mixture in the kettle overnight.
Alternatively, you can use citric acid. Fill the kettle up with water and pour a tablespoon of citric acid into it. Turn on the kettle and let it boil. Leave the solution in for about half an hour to an hour. If you don’t manage to get rid of the scale the first time, repeat the procedure.
Did you decide to clean your kettle with vinegar or citric acid? It’s really up to you. Whatever procedure you choose, don’t forget to boil clean water in the kettle at least twice after cleaning. Then pour it out.
