As part of our ‘fix or fiction’ series, we’re challenging old wives’ tales with some quick fixes around the house.
Next, we investigate whether household vinegar can help eliminate limescale from your kettle…
So there you have it. Fill your limescale-ridden kettle with an equal part solution of water and vinegar. Leave it to soak for an hour, then simply boil the mixture and thoroughly rinse your kettle. Voila.
Just bear in mind that you may need to do the process a few times to get rid of the lingering smell (and taste) of vinegar!
To see all our experiments, check out our fix or fiction series on the video page.
