Top tips on how to keep your home limescale free

69259849eb0214364ec93d2b85b5a19b.jpgWith winter upon us, Oust has launched a ‘Descale the Nation’ campaign to tackle a hard water epidemic facing households and is offering free limescale busting kits for Brits. The initiative is a direct response to new research which reveals that hard water has got worse in 1 in 3 homes over the past year¹, limescale is becoming an epidemic in UK households. As a nation that’s renowned for loving a hot brew, and the winter months being a key for the use of hot water, household appliances and plumbing are under more pressure with limescale lurking and becoming a nuisance.

The research also found the effects of hard water costs Brits £25.8M² due to damage and disrepair of appliances like irons, pipes, showerheads, boilers, and kettles. Limescale can be found in kettles, your dishwasher, shower and even boilers and pipes. Once hard water is heated it creates a chalky off-white crust that creates limescale that is hard to clean off, making appliances look tired and worn.

The great news is there is a solution! It doesn’t need to take hours of hard labour scrubbing it away. Actually, it can take just 10 minutes! From grimy irons to annoying residue in your morning brew, limescale build up can be easily managed with these handy tips:

Use a descaling product

Did you know that limescale build up starts from the first time you use your appliance? Oust All Purpose Descaler works in just 10 minutes to 4f282f272362286e83ddb07efb4e525e.jpgremove 100% of all limescale on a range of household appliances including kettles, irons, coffee machines and showerheads. Just pop it in the appliance and let it do the hard work for you.

Vinegar isn't just for chips

Build-up of limescale on chrome fixtures like taps and showerheads can cause dullness and if left untreated chipping or peeling. Limescale can be decreased by simply dipping a cloth in vinegar and securing it to the fixture for a few hours for a shiny finish. 

Treat your appliances on a regular basis

The key to the prevention of limescale damage is regular descaling of appliances or surfaces. If you live in a hard water area it is advised to descale every 3 months and every 6 months in soft water areas.
