Do you live in an area with hard water? If so, you must be dealing with the limescale. This white thing is always around the houses such as in toilets, tubs, appliances, and others. If you cannot handle it immediately, it can create another problem. Here are some great ways to remove the limescale in your home.
1. Vinegar for Faucets
If there is limescale around your faucets, soak a paper towel in vinegar and wrap it around the faucet. Hold it in place with an elastic band and let the vinegar sit for at least an hour. Then, wipe clean with a soft, dry cloth.
2. DIY Paste for Faucets
Create a paste. To do so, you will need one part water and three parts of baking soda. Rub them all over the limescale around the faucet and let it sit for 60 minutes. Use a soft cloth to wipe it clean.
3. Vinegar for Coffee Makers
Fill your coffee maker with two cups of white vinegar and two cups of water. Run the coffee maker through a complete cycle. Rinse the carafe with warm water, fill with water, and run for another cycle.
4. Vinegar for Tea Kettle
Take some water and vinegar in equal parts and mix the two. Boil and turn the burner off. Let the mixture sit for few hours and rinse with the clear water.
5. Denture Tablets for Coffee Makers
You can also clean your coffee maker by filling the water reservoir with hot water and adding two denture tablets or antacid tablets. Let them fizz, run a complete cycle, rinse, and run another cycle with clear water.
Use this as a tool for your plumber. Install it to protect appliances, boilers, faucets, and others from limescale. This is a safe tool to use and it is from the food-grade natural materials to deal with the limescale buildup.
7. Lemon Juice for Your Tub Taps
Pour pure lemon juice into a spray bottle. Spritz the affected area with a lot of the lemon juice and let it sit for at least half an hour. Re-spray every 15 minutes or so to keep it from drying out. Clean with clear water and a soft cloth. You can also use vinegar for this.
8. Lemon Juice for the Side of the Tub
Do you see a limescale on the side of your tub? Well, it is the time to soak a paper towel and then add lemon juice. It is also possible to use vinegar. After that, stick it to the side of your tub. Once you see the limescale has dissolved, use a soft cloth to wipe. Alternatively, use eraser sponge. After that, use the clean water to rinse the area and repeat it.
9. Vinegar for Your Toilet
Pour a lot of vinegar into the bowl and let it soak for at least 30 minutes (if the limescale is really bad, let it soak overnight). Put some vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz under the toilet rim as well. When the limescale has softened, use a toilet brush to scrub it off. Flush a few times to clean it all away.
10. Vinegar for the Shower Head
Use white vinegar and fill a glass bowl. Remove your shower head and place it in the bowl and soak overnight. Use clean water to rinse and if the shower head still has the limescale, you can fill a freezer bag halfway with the vinegar. After that, stick the shower head in and hold the bag in place by using an elastic band.
