Cleaning a Kettle in a Traditional method.

Hi Friends,

My kettle was full of Limescale and it took quite a bit of time to boil. I was in search of some descalers. I browsed thru the net and found viniger, lime and other commercial descalers. I didn't have any of them at home. Then I started thinking how my grandma would have tackled such a situation, she would use something from the kitchen. Then I got struck with an idea of Tamarind and salt. I tried my own combination and it worked out. My kettle is clean now. I want to share this with everyone.
Here is the easy and harmless way to clean your Kettle. Just add Tamarind (equal to the size of a small Lime) and 2 Tsp of salt to your kettle add water (upto the limescale mark or the maximum). Allow the water to boil switch off the kettle. Leave it for 15 minutes and then wash it off. Your limescale will be removed totally. You may vary the quantity of tamarind and salt depending on the Limescale.
Note:- The quantity mentioned above is just a rough estimate, you can try on your own.

Enjoy every minute of life,
A minute lost is lost for ever,
So always be Happy :).
