As you know, even purified water is a solution of various salts. After repeated boiling water, these components are deposited on the inside of the kettle, forming a so-called scale-free. Of course, it is legitimate to ask if the maker has formed the scale, what to do in order to get rid of it? In this article we will explain how you can use citric acid de-scaling the kettle.

The best known method, which was used by our grandmothers are to clean the kettle from scale citric acid: in a kettle filled with water, filled with 50-70 gr. acid, then the water is boiled. After cooling, water is drained, gaining new and repeat boiling process.
