What's the most practical thing to do to eliminate hard mineral sticking my kettle formed by a spring water?
Our water source is deepwell and we have spring water. Spring water accumulates white minerals or substance that sticks on the kettle as we boil it. What's the best thing to do except scratching it with steel brush. The spout is almost covered by white substance and covers the holes which flows small water when I pour it. It's hard to clean because I have to punch it with small pointed object to eliminate or lessen it. Have you any idea?

There are commercial products made for this, but you may be fine using plain white vinegar (dilute 50/50 with water) and soaking it in the kettle and scrubbing away. See first link... More

Have you tried a de-scaler? It can be found at a lot of hardware stores. Be careful if you use CLR. It is quite costic and can harm your skin. If and when you do get rid of the build-up rinse it out everyday with a bit of vinegar to help the problem from coming back. BLUE
