How to Clean a Tea Kettle

We hate it when the bottom of our tea kettle loses it's gleam!  So when we ran across this NO SCRUB advice for cleaning tea kettles from Cherished Bliss we were pretty excited.

Below are three easy steps (and just two ingredients) for getting rid of the mineral deposits that cause the bottom of the tea kettle to get all mucked up.

  1. Pour 2 cups of white vinegar and 2 cups of water into the kettle.
  2. Bring mixture to a boil.  Let boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Turn off kettle or remove from heat.  Allow mixture to sit in the kettle for a few hours or overnight.
