Citric Acid, by Dri Pak
Citric Acid is made of natural acid found in citrus fruits, and is an excellent natural descaler - which you can use to descale electric appliances or cleaning in the bathroom. Totally plastic-free, coming in a cardboard box, It is a non-toxic option for green cleaning your home.
Usage & Specifications:
Toilets: Tip half a packet down the loo if it’s extra coated in limescale. Leave for half an hour and then the limescale just falls away when brushed with the loo brush.
Kettles: add about one tablespoon full, and fill with water as far as the limescale reaches up the inside of your kettle. Switch on the kettle and as it heats up, you will see the limescale fizzing as it reacts with the acid. 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 well a couple of times before use.
Cloudy glasses: If your drinks glasses are cloudy, the chances are that it's caused by hard water mineral deposits. Simply make a hot solution of citric acid and leave them to soak for 10 mins before washing as normal. If the problem isn't resolved, it's likely that the surface has been 'etched' over time and generally not salvageable.
Showerheads: If the showerhead can be removed, soak it in a bowl of hot water with citric acid. Leave for 10 mins then wipe with a cloth and force water through the holes to clear out any remaining limescale. If the head can't be removed, pour the hot solution into a plastic bag and secure with an elastic band and follow the same instructions.
If you suffer with sensitive skin it is advisable to wear gloves.
