One day, our reader stumbled upon her old kettle, which she has not used in over a year. Of course, no one had washed it during this time, and therefore it looked like it has seen better days. The woman recalled that the last time she cleaned it was, in fact, with vinegar. The procedure took more than two cups of the solution. Moreover, she had to boil and rinse her kitchen helped numerous times to get rid of the unpleasant odor.

The woman did not use citric acid. Unfortunately, few people know about the harm it can do. If you use it to clean a washing machine, for instance, citric acid can damage the drum and even knock the appliance out of service.

Budget-Friendly Solution

The heroine of this story believes that cleaning scale with vinegar and citric acid is a horse and buggy era. Yes, our grandmothers and mothers did use them for cleaning. However, products designed specifically for descaling have been gracing store shelves for a long time.

Besides, buying a special product is budget-friendly. Three ounces of any decalcifier will be enough for 6-7 applications, whereas a sachet of citric acid can only be used 2-3 times, and 2 cups of vinegar will run out after 1-2 uses.

The woman was delighted with the product she purchased. Already at the boiling stage, she saw that the scale flakes actively separate from the surface of the kettle and dissolve in water. After only a couple of minutes, the appliance was as good as new. She didn’t even have to fill and empty the kettle numerous times in an attempt to get rid of the annoying odor.

Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
