Limescale is a build-up of a hard deposit with a chalk-like appearance which mainly consists of calcium carbonate. It is usually left behind by hard water when it evaporates – water that has a high mineral count. In most cases, you’ll find limescale inside kettles, hot water boilers, and pipes. Traditionally, it is found wherever there is warm water. When it comes to bathrooms, this will include taps, toilets, shower heads and plugs. Fans of cleaning sensation Mrs Hinch have shared an “instant” way to remove “stubborn” limescale without the use of chemicals.

Taking to a Mrs Hinch inspired cleaning page on Facebook, one woman shared photos to the page of her bathroom that had thick limescale buildup all over the end of the tap.

Alongside the photos, Angela Greeway wrote: “My bathroom taps have got limescale on the bottom of them and one looks like it’s tarnished. 

“I pour solution on but it drips off so it doesn’t stay on long enough to remove the limescale. What can I use instead?”

There are various ways to remove limescale, these involve specially-made products or home-made solutions. So, for those who don’t want to smell chemicals or want to be kinder to the environment, they can still remove limescale easily.

Jane White wrote: “I use a wet 2p to get the limescale off. It comes off easily and doesn’t scratch the tap. Neil Patel replied to Jane and said: “Works a treat. Literally just comes off in bits.”

Marg Craven said: “Just reading comments about limescale so I had to try this 2p coin thing! It’s magic 100 percent. 

“I just kept wetting the 2p, rubbing on the limescale and it just came off. It’s amazing.”

Sue Oakley said: “I used half a lemon wedged up onto the tap and used elastic bands, not that easy to leave to soak. Then I used a 2p piece and gently scraped away limescale, it works, got tip from this site.”

Not only is the 2p cleaning hack easy and affordable, it banishes the need for harsh cleaning chemicals. 

Other Mrs hunch fans either recommended using white vinegar on its own or paired with baking soda.

Davina Collette Raby said: “Put white vinegar on cotton pads and tie them around the limescale overnight.”

Georgine Bradshaw commented: “Mix bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar in a bowl funnel into a balloon, put the balloon over the tap and leave for 30 to 45 minutes. Then take off the balloon and wipe off the tap, if it’s really bad leave for an hour.”

Georgia Beattie said: “White vinegar in a bag and tie a hair band or something around the bag so it stays on the taps.  Leave for about 30 minutes and you should see the limescale floating about.”

Sharon Kitchener agreed: “Put white vinegar in a freezer bag, place over tap and secure with an elastic aster band, making sure the limescale sits in the white vinegar, leave overnight then remove and rinse.”

Michelle Cairns commented: “Get a zippy sandwich bag and fill it half with white vinegar and cover the tap inside it and zip it up. Leave for couple of hours then wipe clean.”

Sharon Black added: “Food bag with bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar, use a rubber band to keep it over the limescale. Leave overnight and rinse in the morning.”
