Removing Build Up from Tea Kettle

To remove the buildup from the inside of a tea kettle, a friend told me this method.

Fill the tea kettle with lemon juice (bottle from juice section in grocery store is OK). Put in enough juice to cover the buildup. Leave it alone for some six hours, twirling the pot occasionally to swirl the juice.


Empty and wash clean.

Removing Build Up from Tea Kettle

Vinegar is a frugal natural room freshener (once the smell dissipates) and it removes mineral deposits. I fill my kettle or coffee pot with vinegar, heat it, then turn it off to sit for 2 hours. Dispose of vinegar, it freshens your drains, then run clear water through your nice clean pot.

Love and Prayers,
