It did a terrible job of cleaning it but at least the worst of the scaliness is gone!

I found an old and scaley electric kettle and decided that it was too much of a hassle to clean it by hand so I put it inside the dishwasher on the eco-clean setting.

It only took 20 minutes and came out, somewhat cleaner than what it was before.

Except for the part where you are thinking — what about those electrodes in the bottom of the kettle?

My best friend — the box of rice comes in. inside the bottom of the box I place some rice about 2 inches or so.

Then I put the electric kettle into the box and fill it up with rice about half-way.

I then let this silly yet effective ‘life hack’ do its work and pull it out of the rice in a few days.

Once it’s dry I can now scrub it with a damp cloth and dish detergent until the rest of the grime is gone.
