Though there are plenty of limescale busting cleaning products available, many people are moving towards using all-natural substances around their home, particularly in their kitchens.
The good news is, as limescale has a high pH, making it an alkaline, acid natural substances such as white vinegar and citric acid work wonders to remove it.
Citric acid, for those who don’t know, is a naturally occurring acid found in citrus fruits such as lemon.
In a dedicated Reddit forum, user Even Stevens explained how they had experienced “effective” results using both natural acids.
They said: “Lemon juice and water in the bottom of the kettle for like half an hour or so, then boil it. Super cheap and very effective.
“If you want it done faster, then white vinegar – but be prepared to stink your kitchen out. Boiled vinegar is not a good smell.”
