Question about Swan Kitchen Appliances - Others
Been using this fix for many years:
Get a large jug of the cheapest white vinegar you can find, fill your teapot with it (make sure the pot is cool and do not turn it on!!) and let it just sit overnight. You will notice that the inside of your teapot will be sparkling clean. Vinegar is about 4% acidic and it is the acid that dissolves the scale. After you are done, save the vinegar for use with other items aroung the home like shower heads, just remember that it takes a lot of time in contact with the solution for this to work.
The mineral buildup is Calcium Carbonate, which is just simple water hardness. Unfortunately as water gets hotter, this chemical has more of a tendency to scale up. Just the reverse of what you would think. So keep the tea or coffee pot cool during the soak.

IF THE BUILD UP OF SCALE IS BAD YOU MAY HAVE TO TREAT SEVERAL TIMES TO CLEAN. VINIGER IS A GOOD CHOICE, JUST FILL ABOVE THE COILS AND LET SIT AND DO THIS AS MANY TIMES AS IT TAKES TO CLEAN THE COILS. ANOTHER GOOD PRODUCT IS CALLED- CLR MOST HOME DEPOTS HANDLE THIS PRODUCT IT STANDS FOR C-CALSIUM / L- LIME / R- RUST
THIS IS A LITTLE STRONGER THEN VINIGER BUT DOES THE SAME THING. BOTH WILL TAKE SEVERAL CLEANINGS
