HOW TO MAKE A NON-TOXIC LIMESCALE REMOVER

Jo Mantini

Citric acid is an excellent product for removing limescale ... so why not make your own detergent that is able to remove it and clean at the same time? 

 

I prefer working in grams because it is more accurate than ml/tbs/oz. 

 

INGREDIENTS

100 g Citric Acid 
30 g Washing Up Liquid 
500 g Water 
(better if distilled or saved water that has been boiled in the kettle)

 

 

HOW TO PREPARE

Pour the water into the bottle and add the citric acid. Shake the mixture and allow the citric acid to dissolve; then add the washing-up liquid.

 

HOW TO USE

Spray the detergent directly into the shower, bath, onto taps and the glass shower door. Allow the product to soak into the surface and dissolve the limescale: the time it takes to work will depend on how stubborn the layers of limescale and hard stains are - sometimes you will need to scrub the surface to eliminate them.  Gently wipe in circular motions until the limescale dissolves. Finish by rinsing everything with warm water.

 

TIP

Citric acid is, of course, an "acid" and it dissolves limestone. Consequently, it is better not to use it on MARBLE (or even metals, such as COPPER or BRASS) as it could be corrosive.

Always remember to use it with your rubber gloves on when cleaning.
