    Why? Use baking soda and lemon

    • +8 votes

      Vinegar works too, but i guess probably wouldn't need much of this stuff

      The sheep will buy it along with Dishwasher "cleaner" and the new gimmick "laundry rinse" for your dirty washing machine.

      Citric acid and it comes out like new.

      Are they compatible with coffee machines too?

      baking soda + lemon or vinegar method okay for stainless steel bottles ?

      So many options that cost mere cents, so really a redundant product.

      •  

        I thought so too, but this stuff really works. I had what looked like rust stains on the base of my kettle and after following the instructions, it came out brand new. I think our water must be really poor quality (or the Breville smart kettle is), as it gets all gunked up again if I use it on 90 degrees (or whatever the coffee setting is), but if I continue to use it on 100 degrees (boiling), it stays clean and I haven't had to clean it for over 6 months now.

        For $5 - it does a great job of cleaning. You get about 2-3 cleans out of one of those bottles (diluting it with water as per the instructions).

          I have no doubt it works, it's just that a fresh wedge of lemon leftover from a takeaway order will work the same.

          I lived in a newish (< 20yo) apartment block until recently. I cleaned my kettle once in 4 years when I lived there. Then I moved to an old house and I've had to do this at least once every month. I have family living in similar aged houses and they have the same issue. I think it may have something to do with the pipes and/or age.

    Vinegar + Bi carb and soak for an hour or so.

    Works for dishwasher as well when you chuck a bowl of vinegar for a 2hr wash. Stuff the $5 and unnecessary chemicals

    I actually cleaned mine yesterday. Used a little bit of vinegar and some water. Boiled it twice then cleaned with a brush. Its like new now.

    Costs $1.20 for a litre of vinegar.

    1:1 vinegar and water. Just enough to cover the stain. Leave for an hour and it's gone. Can also boil it after the hour and then rinse by boiling water twice.

    boil a lemon wedge! easy!

    anyDiluteWarmOrganicAcid

    • citric
    • tartaric
    • acetic (vinegar)

    they will all disolve calcuim carbonate (white build up), and will also eliminate some FeCl (brown iron on the plastics).

    I wonder how much the cost per clean would be for each of these? A lemon can only clean the kettle once and it costs about $0.50-$1 per lemon. Of course vinegar + bi-carb would potentially be cheaper but I've had kettles where the stain goes up to the 1.7L mark which means I'd need to use quite a lot of vinegar for it.

    EDIT: Found the directions
    1) Add 100ml of Kettle Cleaner to 1.6L of water or approximately 60ml per litre of water.

    Each bottle is 250ml so 2 1/2 cleans. Approx. $2.50 per wash.. pfft what a rip

      Soak the kettle in coke (full strength or sugarfree are okay) overnight, comes out like new. $1 for 1.25L when on sale. Pour 600m in and drink the rest.

      3kg of food grade citric acid is under $20 shipped on eBay. Thats more than a lifetime supply since 1tsp is all you need for a 2l kettle.

      I did the cooling system flush on both our cars so Ive used 1kg right off the bat. But 2kg is still a lifetime supply for the kettle lol.

    •  

      Doesn't have to be fresh fruit.
      Could use the small cheap-crap bottles of lemon/lime juice, plus water.

  •  

    Just throw the kettle out after each use, thus saving on cleaning.

    Stupid "product" aimed at the gullible.

  •  

    No idea how toxic and not certain if anyone in the family has had subsequent health impacts, but I have dropped a tablespoon of CLR into the floor of our glass kettle, let it fizz away, then rinse - does quite a good job. But kudos to the boil a lemon wedge idea
    - will try. What I def won't be doing is buying the Kettle Cleaner - bargain or not the good stuff is in this discussion.

    I hate to buck the trend here. I bought 2 of these last year because they were like $0.80 each or something crazy. I bought the last 2. Anyway I used it and it's pretty bloody amazing.

    I've always used the baking soda, vinegar, citrus etc in the past. Nothing wrong with those but I think this works even better. Don't know if I would pay $5 but for 80c each it was a steal.

      Did you use the vinegar and soda together? (they cancel out)

      baking soda is not very useful. I think people are confusing it with "washing soda" - a similar chemical but more alkaline, so a better cleaner.

      Folks, if you want a cheap alkaline cleaner, e.g. the brown burnt-on gnk under your frying pan, just use dishwashing powder (and gloves).

      •  

        No I didn't mean together, for the reasons you stated. I don't remember exactly which I've used in the past but they weren't as effective as this stuff. It brings it back to brand new (kettle isn't very old mind you).

        Put it in, boil it and I think 30 or 60 minutes later it was like brand new. Worth buying when it's cheaper. Also someone above said 2 uses per bottle. I actually used less in mine so probably 3 uses unless your kettle if filthy.

        •  

          You didnt use citric acid then, because that brings it back to brand new with one boil.

          This product probably is citric acid, anyone got the ingredients list?

            @stumo: None mentioned, which suggests to me it's something you could safely-accidentally drink. I'm not a Dr.

            "Not suitable for aluminium kettles" is probably a big clue.

            @stumo: Interesting, I probably haven't. TO be honest in the past I've tended to just replace the kettle when they are getting dirty because they tend to not last forever anyway. But when I saw this product so cheap (I'm sure I paid under $1 each) I got it and tried it.

            I'll try your suggestion next time.

  •  

    citric acid works also - same stuff for the coffee maker

    • +1 vote

      Yes. BTW, I think the only reason you use citric acid in a coffee machine is that the vinegar taste is harder to rinse out.

  •  

    or just use lemon?

  •  

    boil a lemon wedge. 100%.

    •  

      Wow I might try this. I've been doing half vinegar half water. Your method is cheaper.

      •  

        someone at work introduced me to this when i was wasting time wiping/scrubbing with this breville cleaner. dropped in the lemon wedge with some water and let it boil. no scrubbing (or even wiping) required.

    Not really worth it when for only 50% more you could buy a whole new kettle: https://www.kmart.com.au/product/1.7l-cordless-kettle/153805

    step 1 fill jug
    step 2 squeeze lemon juice in jug or buy Woolworths Lemon Juice 250ml $1
    step 3 boil jug
    step 4 tip water out rinse and refill
    ……………JUG IS CLEAN …………………
