Chamomile is not only an excellent remedy to promote relaxation and induce sleep, you can also use it at home for household cleaning. In particular, it is an excellent do-it-yourself remedy to eliminate scale deposits from shower and sanitary ware. Here's how to make it!
We all know chamomile as a remedy with soothing and relaxing properties, useful for relieving tension and stress. Few instead know the potential of chamomile as a powerful anti-limescale product, just like the two most famous home remedies: vinegar and baking soda, really effective natural and do-it-yourself products. Chamomile can therefore be a natural substitute for classic chemicals full of additives and parabens: it will in fact make sinks, showers, faucets and pipes shine, eliminating the annoying opaque patina, and all the incrustations caused by limescale, from our sanitary ware. Here's how to make this latest organic discovery for house cleaning.
The preparation of this natural and do-it-yourself anti-limescale product is very simple:
You will need an empty 500ml sprayer, 75 grams of pure citric acid, 1 liter of demineralized water and a sachet of chamomile.
Mix well all the "ingredients", and your do-it-yourself preparation is ready to be used.
You can use this natural anti-limescale on the bathroom fixtures, on the tiles and in the shower.
In case of calcareous encrustations, apply the product on the surface to be treated, let it act for a few minutes and then remove all by passing a damp microfibre cloth.
However, be careful not to use the product on some surfaces: even if it is a natural remedy, it is better to avoid the use of the chamomile anti-limescale on wood, stone, marble and terracotta, in fact they are particularly delicate surfaces.
