Remove limescale with vinegar

How to remove limescale with vinegar?

Limescale is a white deposit of calcium carbonate, and is a residue left behind by water with high concentration of minerals.

You can find it in places like the shower, the sink and faucet, the dishwasher, but also in your kettle or your coffee machine.

Products sold to remove limescale, like Viakal or others, are very toxic, can irritate your eyes, your skin, and can be dangerous to breathe.

Instead, remove limescale with white and plain vinegar. It is super easy and very efficient 😉

Why is it important to clean with natural products?

Industrial cleaning products often contain chemicals and contribute to indoor air pollution. According to the World Health Organisation, 3.8 million deaths are attributed to household air pollution annually, including mould, building materials, home products or volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).

Follow these instructions and clean your home 100% naturally:

Kettle: boil 1 cup of vinegar + 1 cup of water. Wait 10min, and rinse.

Coffee machine: run the machine with 1 cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water. Wait 10 min and run it again with water only, then rinse.

Shower and Sink: spray vinegar in the faucet, wait 10min, and rinse with hot water.
