If you regularly notice limescale building up in your kettle, around your sink and taps, and on your glassware, you may be looking for the best way to remove the marks without damaging the surfaces or appliances.

Rather than going for expensive and chemical-based limescale removing products, it could be worth trying a few natural alternatives first.

Netdoctor recently highlighted some of the best natural cleaning products available to you, pointing to distilled white vinegar as a “brilliant traditional remedy” for removing limescale. It’s simple to use as well – simply soak some paper towels in the vinegar, leave them to sit on the affected surfaces and then wipe away.

Another natural option you may want to consider, particularly if you’re keen to reduce limescale build up in your washing machine, is soda crystals. By including these in your wash loads, you’ll not only boost the stain removing power of your detergent, but also help clean your machine.

Run a hot wash on an empty machine with one cup of soda crystals every now and then to help clear any build up too.

If you live in a hard water area in the UK, you may also want to consider installing water softeners in Marlow, as this will help prevent limescale build up in the first place. These work by filtering out many of the minerals that cause the white scale that appears on sinks and taps, and that clogs up appliances like washing machines and kettles.

As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure, so you may want to look into how a water softener could make your life easier by cutting down on some of those cleaning jobs.
