“Then washed up as usual. Came straight off.”

Another user said: “Boil coke in it then let it sit for an hour.”

Another person replied: “Boil cola and leave it for a few hours.”

However, another user suggested using lemonade rather than cola.

They said: “Saw a hack that boiled Sprite and then rinsed when the colour changed.”

Some sites suggest you can descale your kettle using Coca Cola.

Other hacks included using a dishwasher tablet, washing powder, a Brillo pad or bleach.

Another person suggested using a potato dipped in salt.

They commented: “Dip a cut potato in salt and rub…

“Or sprinkle baking soda in, cover with water and boil for 15 minutes (don’t let it boil dry).”

Other users suggested using Pink Stuff paste which claims to be “ideal for cleaning saucepans”.

The product also claims to work on cooker tops, sinks, uPVC, barbecues, ceramic tiles, glass, showers, garden furniture, brass and rust.
