Home-Based Limescale Cleaning:
Limescale is not adversely negative to your health, but it looks unsightly for guests to your business and those visiting your home. Thankfully, a lot of home remedies can be used to clean and remove limescale from the surface of your sinks and other areas within your home.
Some easy-to-use natural acids include:
- Lemon- Which contains citric acid.
- Vinegar- Diluted acetic acid.
- Bicarbonate Soda- Perfect for mixing with vinegar for tougher stains.
- Coke- Yes that drink we know, and love is great for removing many stains across your home including limescale.
What appliances can you clean?
Toilets: For your toilet, use vinegar or coke. Pour whichever solution you use into the stained toilet and leave for a few hours. Use a non-abrasive brush to firmly wipe down the toilet afterwards for a new shine.
Showerheads: Lemon and vinegar are perfect for cleaning your showerheads. This is a common area with lots of limescale build-up due to the heat and constant use in homes and accommodation.
Use the fleshy side of lime to whip the showerhead, or place a bag containing vinegar over the showerhead to aid in the cleaning. Leave for a few hours and wipe down with a small brush later.
Sinks: Like your showerheads, sinks can be a primary source for the build-up of limescale. Just like your showerheads, both vinegar and lemons can work wonders. Apply the fleshy part of a lemon or use vinegar on the affected areas. Leave for a couple of hours and you can wipe away the limescale for a cleaner looking showerhead.
Prevention is better than reaction:
Though these home solutions can help to get rid of limescale if you do not have something in place that can remove limescale at the source you are going to have to continually clean your appliances.
This might be ok for some, but we know most would rather enjoy their clean, warm water without the worry of damage or the replacing of items.
