How to descale a kettle?

Descaling a kettle is important to remove mineral buildup, which can affect the performance of your kettle and impact the taste of your tea or coffee. Here are a few steps to descale your kettle:

Fill the kettle with equal parts water and white vinegar: Fill the kettle with equal parts water and white vinegar, making sure to leave enough room for the kettle to boil.

Boil the kettle: Boil the kettle, then turn off the heat and let it sit for at least an hour.

Drain the kettle: Drain the kettle and rinse it thoroughly with clean water.

Repeat the process: Repeat the process if there is still visible buildup in the kettle.

Dry the kettle: Dry the kettle thoroughly before using it again.

Alternatively, you can also use a descaling solution specifically designed for kettles or a commercial descaling agent. Follow the instructions on the packaging for the best results.

It’s also a good practice to do this regularly, depending on how frequently you use the kettle and the mineral content of the water you use in it.

It’s also important to note that if you have a kettle with a removable scale filter, make sure to clean or replace it regularly to prevent mineral buildup.
