  • Prevention is key. In general, limescale is formed from minerals evaporated from water, and the harder the water, the more limescale you will get. So the best and most effective way to fight limescale in a kitchen is to avoid leaving water marks. Whenever you use the kitchen, remember to wipe off any remaining water with a dry cloth.
  • Household substances. You can try scrubbing off limescale with an abrasive sponge, but in doing so, there’s a risk you might damage the material underneath. You can also try to remove limescale with vinegar or lemon juice… but it’s just not as efficient as a real anti-limescale product.
