How to Remove Chlorine Deposits in Kettles
Chlorine was first added to drinking water in 1908, helping to eliminate waterborne diseases in the U.S. One effect of processed and treated municipal water is that well-used kettles frequently grow deposits inside. Most kettle deposits are an accumulation of calcium and magnesium in chlorinated water. These deposits should be removed periodically as you notice the build-up. Most of the time, kettles with mineral deposits are salvageable, but if there are significant deposits and wear from chlorinated water, the kettle should be replaced.
