Woman reveals how she removed limescale from her kettle using lemon juice – and got it looking brand new

LIMESCALE can be tricky to remove at the best of times, with many people relying on popular cleaning sprays and chemicals to tackle their shower screen and taps. 

But how do to target the hard to reach places such as inside your kettle? This hack will take the difficulty out of cleaning your kettle - and it involves no chemicals or scrubbing whatsoever.

Lauren Jones shared her kettle-cleaning hack on the Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook group, with many Hinch fans praising the simple method.

The kettle-cleaning hack involves using lemon juice and water to remove the limescale, and it works a treat.

Lauren shared photos of her kettle both before and after the deep clean.

Her see-through kettle appeared murky with the inside being completely covered by the limsescale.

But after tackling the mess, she was able to get her kettle looking brand new again with the water and the glass appearing crystal clear.

Revealing her method, she said: "lemon juice, leave for one hour, add small amount of water, boil and all the limescale starts to go."

She later shared a comment explaining that she'd used a quarter of lemon juice from the bottle - rather than fresh lemon juice- and topped it up with a small amount of water before boiling it three times.

She also warned: "don’t do too much water as it will all boil out at the lemon fizzes."

While many were impressed by the simple trick, others suggested using white vinegar which also gets the job done.

While another said: " You can also boil vinegar - just don't use it afterwards - store it in a container as you can use thew same vinegar many many times."

Another person was so impressed by this hack that she even suggested switching from her usual method using vinegar.

She said: "I normally use white vinegar in mine but cant stand the smell gonna have to try this."
