Kettles are being used more frequently when it comes to the tea drinkers out there, however, just like the coffee maker should be cleaned on a regular basis, so should the kettle. There can be build up within the kettle which can have different effects.
The product that can begin to accumulate within the kettle is limescale which is a whitish deposit on the inside of pipes, pots, and kettles, caused by minerals leached from the water. Because of this deposit, water can begin to taste odd. Furthermore, if there is limescale within the kettle, it can more time to heat up and along the way can impact the lifespan of the kettle. Limescale can be apart of the water that goes into the mug or cup you are using which does not look appetizing by any means.
Cleaning the kettle is no problem. There are specific kettle cleaners out there and there are also natural cleaners too. White vinegar is an acidic product that can help remove the limescale.
There is no harm if you consume some amounts of limescale, but kidney stones are known because of build up of certain materials within limescale.
Overall, keep the kettle clean to keep the appliance lasting longer as well as keeping the great taste in tact.
