The more you use the kettle, the more limescale builds up inside!

Tip: If after cleaning the kettle with any of the above three options, there is a limescale that is difficult to remove we encourage you to do the following: Put one cup of raw rice in the kettle and shake it well for an about 5 minutes. Thus, the rice will scrub any residue off. Empty and rinse it well.
