Dri-Pak Citric Acid 250g
Citric Acid is part of the non-toxic 'Clean and Natural' Range and is a descaler that’s made of natural acid found in citrus fruits.
By keeping appliances free of limescale, less electricity is required to operate them and they will have a longer service life. Citric Acid can be used as a substitute for white vinegar. It's also better for the environment as it's using less plastic and you're not paying for the water that makes up 94-96% of the volume.
Using Citric Acid around the home
Much of the UK has some degree of hard water and it is very hard in the east and south east of England. This map will show you how hard the water is in your area.
The white deposits that build up on kettle elements are perhaps the most recognisable signs of limescale. They can also be found on taps, showerheads and even in toilet bowls and the grout between tiles. There are also limescale deposits that can't be seen - such as in coffee machines, washing machines, steam irons and the heating elements of sterilisers for babies’ bottles.
To protect your appliances, descale them regularly to prevent build-up. The harder your water, the more regularly this will need to be done. Once limescale has built up to severe levels, the appliance can break down altogether. Here are the instructions for cleaning a dishwasher.
For kettles, simply pour some citric acid into the kettle - about a tablespoon full and add about an inch worth of water, so that the element or base plate is covered with water. Switch on the kettle and as it heats up, you will see the limescale fizzing as it reacts with the acid. You can turn the kettle off before it reaches the boil. If the fizzing stops and there is limescale remaining, then repeat the process until all limescale is removed. Usually it will be gone 1st attempt. Discard the water, rinse out the kettle a couple of times. Watch this video on descaling a kettle.
