I've used 2 TBSP of vinegar in a full pot of water for years. Run it through once, then run plain water for a 2nd pot and it's clean.

Can I used tartaric acid as sub for cream of tartare in meringue

Yes you can, it is the same thing, one is the chemical name and one in the common baking name.

The only different one is 'Baking Powder', which his a mix of two elements (bicarbonate of soda and tartaric acid) that create bubbles when wet.

I am out of cream of tartar what do I use in it place?

For beating egg whites - use an equal amount of white vinegar or lemon juice, or omit the cream of tartar entirely

As a leavening agent - replace the baking soda and the cream of tartar in the recipe with baking powder. One teaspoon of baking powder replaces 1/3 tsp of baking soda and 2/3 tsp cream of tartar

Out of cream of tartar. What can I use from my cupboard to substitute?

see here
or any of a number of articles.

Possibly the function of cream of tartar in ice cream making is to stablise egg whites so the ice cream is similar in texture to whipped cream or meringue so you might try "use an equal amount of white vinegar or lemon juice, or omit the cream of tartar entirely". Have fun experimenting !

What solution will work to clean out the sediment that settles in non-electric teapot? We gave very hard water in our area and the pot if full of white flakes after the water boils.

For that model, instead of the usual vinegar, the solution you need is 1tbsp of cream of tartar for every 2 cups of water. Cream of tartar is normally a spice, so it would more likely be found in the spices section of the grocery store rather than the cleaners section.
