Simple descaling tips in a kettle

The mechanism of the appearance of scale is known to almost everyone. This occurs as a result of the appearance of limestone scale. A striking example of the occurrence of scale is the heating of a kettle with water for an extended period of time. This can not be avoided because, as part of the water is lime, giving it rigidity.

The opinion will be erroneous if it is considered that cleaning from scale should not be carried out often. It has a negative effect on the vessel in which you warm the water. First, in the presence of scale increases the time of heating the water, which increases the energy costs for this (electricity, gas, etc.). Secondly, the appearance of scale on heating elements, disables household appliances. Third, boiling water in the case increases the concentration of lime in the water.

There are chemical and non-chemical cleaning methods. The most common cleaning method is the use of citric acid. To do this, fill the kettle with water to the maximum level, pour into it the contents of one packet of citric acid and bring it to a boil.In the process of heating water, citric acid, reacting with limescale, will clean the walls and bottom of the kettle, and if it is an electric kettle, then the heating element.

When the kettle boils, the solution must be poured out and refilled with water, but without acid. Then you need to boil it again and pour out the contents - this will remove the remaining citric acid from the kettle.

In addition to citric acid, a solution of acetic acid is used to remove the scale. In this case, the process is similar to the actions with citric acid, but there is one major drawback in this method - an unpleasant smell. It will appear during the heating of this composition, which is related to the properties of this acid. It is recommended to use this method only in a room with good ventilation or in the open air.

Probably the most famous method of descaling, is considered to be the use of sour apples or a whole apple for this.

At the moment, there are no other ways to prevent scaling when water boils up from the tap. Manufacturers of dishes have developed only the spraying of a special composition, which slows down the process of scaling, but cannot prevent it.

The development of technology has allowed housewives to offer household tools for descaling in an electric kettle. "Antinakipin" refers to the popular means of descaling, which offers industry. It includes soda ash, the main purpose of which is to soften hard water.

The industry produces it in the form of a powder or liquid, but it is used in exactly the same way: diluted with water, poured into a kettle and brought to a boil. There are a lot of similar products on the market, but the main difference is the name and price. The method of application and the principle of action are practically the same for all.

It is also erroneous to believe that the use of a filter for water purification can prevent the occurrence of scale.

Filters for domestic use are made in such a way as to purify water from chlorine and heavy metals, for lime they are not a hindrance. To scale does not appear when boiling water, it is necessary to use soft water or apply water softeners.
