Descaling a Kettle with Vinegar

You will need

  • A bottle of any type of Vinegar
  • Cloth


  1. Wipe down the surface of the kettle with warm water and dry with a cloth.
  2. Fill a kettle ¾ full of equal parts vinegar and water.
  3. Close the lid and bring to the boil.
  4. Rinse a few times to clear out the dislodged limescale.
  5. Boil again with water only and rinse again to remove the smell and taste of vinegar (no one wants vinegar-infused tea).
