We recommend using natural products to remove limescale. A number of chemical cleaners may well be quicker, but the fewer chemicals we have in our homes and the environment the better.
The best natural cleaners are lemon juice or vinegar– with a bit of gentle scrubbing and elbow grease. Build-up around taps is best dealt with by soaking a cloth or cotton wool in lemon juice or vinegar and wrapping it round the affected area for one or two hours – occasionally squeezing it to get more liquid onto the affected areas. You may need a plastic scrubber to dislodge the more stubborn bits of scale.
Once finished, remember that regular cleaning with e-cloth will help prevent further build-up of limescale.
