Tip: Natural cleaning care for your kettle or coffee maker
Isn’t it true that the first thing in the morning —
a nice cup of warm coffee or tea can set our day up for success.
Not that the joy of our days rise and fall on our of morning cup of joe.
But … pretty close.
There is nothing that sets my day off grumpy then when I start drinking and feel the gritty feel of limescale IN MY MORNING COFFEE.
Oh! Right… cleaning the kettle is usually on my “to–do–list.”, but rarely gets done or thought about expect when I’m down to the bottom 1/4 of my cup and it needs to get thrown out! Gross!
