Got Water Stains In Your Kettle? This Viral Hack Will Show You How To Clean It


Many people use a kettle in their kitchen for heating water daily. Some may wonder that since only water goes into the kettle, it may not require much cleaning. However, it is important to keep your kettle clean. If you do not regularly clean the kettle, you may notice a chalky white deposit at the bottom surface. This is called limescale (calcium carbonate), which is a hard deposit that gets left behind on surfaces when water evaporates. Limescale build-up can affect the efficiency of your kettle and may also give your water a slightly metallic flavour.

You cannot clear the limescale by just washing the kettle with water. Wondering how to clean it then? Here is a hack going viral on Instagram, as shared by digital creator Shashank Alshi (@alshihacks). The viral video has clocked more than 5 million views.
