Make Your Burnt Kettle Look Pristine Again With One Simple Pantry Item
Even a good-quality, sturdy kettle can sustain some wear and tear after constant use and frequent heating. There’s a super simple way to restore your kettle’s shine.
Baking soda, a natural abrasive, can remove kettle stains. Just soak the kettle in hot, soapy water for 20 minutes, dampen a cloth, dip it in baking soda, and gently scrub.
After a thorough rinse you'll see a noticeable improvement in the kettle's appearance. For stubborn burn marks, combine baking soda with white vinegar for some serious power.
Mix one cup of baking soda and one cup of white vinegar to create a fizzy, bubbly stain-fighting paste. Apply the paste to the problem areas and let it sit for 20 minutes.
This resting period allows the mixture to break down and penetrate the stains. From there, scrub the area with a sponge or steel wool pad, and rinse.
The stains should lift, thanks to the combined abrasive action of the baking soda and the acidic dissolving power of the white vinegar.
