Mrs Hinch fans share budget friendly kettle-descaling tip which costs just 14p


She’s the go-to social media star renowned for her genius cleaning tips that save money as well as time.

And now Mrs Hinch has wowed her followers once again with another quick and pocket-friendly way to bring a kettle back to life – this time indirectly.

Fans of the cleaning enthusiast, who has gained over 4.1 million followers on Instagram, have created their own social media groups, sharing the cleaning and tidying hacks provided by the famous expert.

And when one woman recently asked on one of the groups how best to descale a kettle, Mrs Hinchers were quick to offer some sound advice.

They suggested a novel way to make a kettle look “perfect every time” and “like new” at a cost of just 14p.

The lady asked: “Please help, I need a natural descaler for my kettle, we live in a hard water area and I am fed up with all the scale and paying out for a new kettle every six months.”

Fellow fans on the site, which has over 709,000 members, came back with various suggestions and the most common was to use “lemon juice” or a lemon.

You can buy a four-pack of lemons from ASDA for just 54p, which works out at just under 14p per lemon.

One user suggested: “Cut a lemon in half. Put both halves in with a kettle full of water. Boil it with the lemon in and preferably leave overnight. Empty in the morning – perfect every time!”

Another person agreed: “Half lemon and boil a few times. Have used vinegar, then boil, worked also.”

Another said: “Lemons. Once I’ve used the juice I chuck the rest in the kettle, boil it a couple of times. Leave it overnight. Make sure you don’t forget to rinse it out in the morning before making a cuppa!”

Another person also suggested using lemon juice or vinegar.

“Lemon juice or vinegar overnight, then rinse, job done,” they said.

Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, shot to fame after she shared her cleaning tips and recommendations on social media and TV. The influencer’s cleaning books and memoir have been included on the Sunday Times Bestseller list.
