How to descale thermopot: effective cleaning products


The ther­mal sweat is cov­ered with a coat­ing, which leads to an increase in ener­gy con­sump­tion due to a decrease in the rate of water heat­ing, the appear­ance of strong nois­es dur­ing oper­a­tion and the acqui­si­tion of an unpleas­ant after­taste of water after boil­ing. There­fore, in any case, you will have to clean the ther­mal pot from white plaque using the meth­ods described below.

Cleaning the thermal pot with purchased products

You need to pur­chase a spe­cial descal­ing solu­tion from the hard­ware store. It is used for all water heaters. The pro­ce­dure takes a min­i­mum amount of time.

The method of appli­ca­tion depends on the spe­cif­ic tool, but usu­al­ly the instruc­tions are pre­sent­ed as fol­lows:

  1. Pour water into the ther­mopot.
  2. Add drug.
  3. Boil water sev­er­al times.
  4. Rinse the device thor­ough­ly.
  5. Pour ordi­nary water into the ket­tle and boil with­out any means.

There should be no residue of the prod­uct inside, as it is very tox­ic.

How to clean the thermopot with home remedies?

If you pre­fer to do with­out house­hold chem­i­cals, then folk reme­dies for descal­ing are suit­able for you. We have col­lect­ed the most effec­tive meth­ods, so choose the method that suits you and pro­ceed with the pro­ce­dure:

Baking soda

It is often used to fight a thin lay­er of plaque accord­ing to the fol­low­ing instruc­tions:

  1. Pour water into the ket­tle.
  2. Add soda at the rate of 1 tbsp. l. for 1 liter of water.
  3. Boil and turn off the device.
  4. Wash off the ther­mal pot when it cools down.

If the first time it was not pos­si­ble to clean the plaque, boil­ing with soda can be repeat­ed sev­er­al times.

The advan­tage of this method is that after boil­ing there is no unpleas­ant odor, and bak­ing soda is absolute­ly harm­less to humans.

A solution of soda and citric acid

To descale the appli­ance using this method, pre­pare:

  • A clean dish sponge.
  • Cit­ric acid in the amount of 20 g.
  • Bak­ing soda in the amount of 20 g.

It is nec­es­sary to pour water into the ther­mo pot along with bak­ing soda and start boil­ing. Boil­ing water should be drained after 20–30 min­utes, and then again fill the device with water, but with cit­ric acid. Leave the water to boil for half an hour. After clean­ing, the bot­tom and walls of the ther­mopot must be thor­ough­ly rinsed using a sponge.

Cleaning the thermopot with soda and lemon

If there is lit­tle scale, then you can do with­out the use of soda.


Our grand­moth­ers also cleaned teapots from scale with table vine­gar, so why shouldn’t we use it for ther­mal sweat. To begin with, we will make a solu­tion — for 1 liter of water you need to take 50 ml of vine­gar. Pour the rec­om­mend­ed amount of the solu­tion into the appli­ance and boil it for a few min­utes. After the ther­mopot, it is nec­es­sary to turn off and leave the liq­uid in it for sev­er­al hours.

Cleaning the thermopot from scale with vinegar

Close the appli­ance, as vine­gar fumes can cause seri­ous dam­age to health. Be aware of the dan­gers of vine­gar and warn your fam­i­ly that the ther­mopot con­tains vine­gar solu­tion, not water.

It is nec­es­sary to boil the ther­mopot at least 3 times, for large mod­els the num­ber will increase to 5.


Prac­tice shows that drinks such as Coca-Cola, Pep­si and Sprite also do an excel­lent job of remov­ing deposits. The effect of the list­ed drinks is the same, but we rec­om­mend choos­ing the col­or­less Sprite. The few­er dyes, the bet­ter.

Soda must be poured into the device and boiled. You will be sur­prised, but the white coat­ing will dis­ap­pear after that. You can not drink liq­uid from a ther­mopot! Rinse the device sev­er­al times after boil­ing.

If the ther­mopot is out of order, read the arti­cle: Do-it-your­self ther­mopot repair (instruc­tion for begin­ners).

Video: Descaling folk remedies

The video shows the descal­ing of an elec­tric ket­tle, but in the case of a ther­mopot, the process fol­lows exact­ly the same pat­tern. Lis­ten care­ful­ly to the rec­om­men­da­tions and apply the knowl­edge gained in prac­tice:

There are many ways — you just have to choose the right option. Sure­ly, you have a bot­tle of vine­gar, soda or a pack of cit­ric acid in your kitchen. If there is too much scale, then you should trust a spe­cial tool from the hard­ware store. Per­form clean­ing at least once a month, and scale will not both­er you.
