What a romantic post title, but I’m afraid in the real world things like scaled up taps are sent to try us and kill all the romantic notions of perfect homedom. Here is a simple, effective, cheap, environmentally friendly and totally natural way to deal with the problem.
You know the deal, that unwanted crusty addition that appears round the edge of the tap, usually the cold one. Of course you can use all manner of chemical and commercial products to get rid of it, but honestly why bother when you have the very tool in the kitchen – a used lemon.
Now I say ‘used’ because I wouldn’t waste a nice fresh whole lemon for this, way too valuable for cooking etc. No, wait till you’ve squeezed the little darling and even grated off all the zest (photo shows zesty lemon but just look at the age of the poor sod).
How To Use Lemon To Remove Limescale On Taps;
Push the lemon half onto the bottom of the tap making sure it is covering the nasty limescale mess.
Hold it in place by covering with a plastic bag and either tying it on with string or put one of the thousands of elastic bands the post office kindly supplies us with on a daily basis to good use and secure the bag/lemon combo with this.
Now leave it there overnight.
Et voila! Lovely sparkly taps.
Now that’s how to use lemon to remove limescale from taps and wasn’t that easy!
