We all know that after using the kettle for a long time, a thick layer of scale will grow on the inner wall, but because it is very troublesome to clean up, many people choose to ignore it.
If the kettle is not cleaned for a long time, the scale inside will not only look unsightly, but the boiled water will also become very dirty, and it will also reduce the thermal conductivity of the kettle. Share 3 tips to help you remove the scale of the kettle correctly.

1. Lemon descaling

We first slice the lemons, then pour about one-third of the water into the kettle, put the sliced lemons in the kettle and boil with the water, let the lemons soak in the water for a period of time, and then pour out the water. Cleaned up. Because the main component of lemon is citric acid, the citric acid reacts with the scale after heating, so that the scale falls off, so that the kettle will have a lemon scent after cleaning.


2. White vinegar to remove limescale

White vinegar contains acetic acid, which can chemically react with scale, which can effectively remove scale in the kettle. First, we poured white vinegar and water into a kettle in a ratio of ten to one, and then carried out a process of boiling. When we clean the kettle after the water boils, we will find that the scale is easily eliminated.

3. Edible alkali or baking soda

We pour a spoonful of edible alkali into the kettle, and then pour a spoonful of white vinegar, white vinegar and edible alkali, which can quickly react and soften the scale in the kettle. Shake evenly, let stand for 15 minutes, then pour in water and bring the water to a boil. After the water boils, we pour out the sewage and you can see that the scale on the bottom of the kettle is clean. If the first cleaning effect is not very satisfactory, you can perform the second cleaning, because if the scale accumulated for a long time, it is difficult to clean it thoroughly once.
