How to remove limescale from your bathroom

by Jennifer Sinclair

Limescale is a hard and chalky deposit, consisting mainly of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), that often builds up inside kettles, in bathrooms, hot water boilers, and pipework.

If you live in an area with hard water, you will know all too well the problems it causes.  Limescale needs to be removed from your bathroom as it is not only unsightly, but mould latches onto the mineral deposits and grows. To remove limescale in your bathroom this is what you will need:

  • Gyre and Gymble Scented Vinegar 
  • Gyre and Gymble Lemon Essential Oil 
  • Small scrubbing brush 
  • Paper towel 

Spray Scented Vinegar onto the affected area and leave for a minute or two then scrub clean. If the limescale is caked on you can cover the area with some paper towel, then soak with the Scented Vinegar. Leave this for as long as possible allowing the acidity of the vinegar to work its magic on the limescale. Scrub or rub off and finish off by cleaning your taps with a few drops of lemon essential oil. This will leave the taps shinning and smelling wonderful.
