Tea Time, COFFEE Time

Stumbling out of bed on this overcast Sunday morning, I caveman-like dragged my feet into the kitchen, knowing the one drug I needed to feel human again was just a kettle-boil away. Ah, coffee. I could sing your praises for all of my Sunday, but I’ll cut right to the chase.

I don’t know what compelled me to look into the Kisster-Kettle when filling it with cold, filtered water from the Brita (I swear by this!); but I did – and I saw the most un-appetizing rings of deposit inside.

We only boil water in this device so I know it is just water-deposits lurking in the kettle, but I can tell you I googled ‘how to clean a kettle’ so fast you would have thought kitchen tips were going out of style.

So folks, if you’re like me and going to be brewing a lot of your own delicious coffee and tea this fall, use this neat trick I learned from eHow.com to clean your kettle:

Fill your tea kettle with one part water, one part white vinegar.

Bring to a boil.

After this boils, let sit for a few hours to overnight.

Pour out the mixture and continue to boil batches of water until you completely get the vinegar smell out.

And, enjoy the many beverages to follow!
