Wipe your stainless tea kettle shortly after it has boiled. It's easier to wipe kitchen grease off it while it's still hot. Just be careful not to burn yourself.

I used a jug to measure olive oil for cooking and the residue was still there when I used it to fill the kettle with water. Now the water from the kettle has a not so good taste. Any ideas how I can get rid of this oil residue form my kettle. I have tried Fairy liquid descaler and reboiling.

I've always cleaned the tea stain on a teapot with some baking soda and a sponge. It is easy to do this and just dampen your sponge and add the baking soda. Now start to scrub away the tea stains.

I clean most everything in my kitchen with vinegar and baking soda. If the stain is really bad and it isn't a metal that may scratch, I add salt.

A clean old toothbrush is handy for cleaning awkward places like the plastic kettle lids. Try making a paste for maximum cleaning power. It is supposed to fizz! Rinse with warm water.

Baking soda works well but I also use Soft Scrub or Barkeepers Friend and then finish with vinegar.

a scrubby salt cleanse would be good to really get the stain and the grit out. Also baking soda and vinegar explosion can help eliminate grit

I always get the tea stains off by using cleaning powders such as Ajax, use a soft sponge and rub off, be sure and rinse thoroughly with warm water .
