Sprinkle the cream of tartar into your kettle and fill with water.  Bring kettle to the boil.  Once boiled leave to cool.  Empty kettle and rinse making sure you rinse out all the cream of tartar crystals.  Fill the kettle (this time without the cream of tartar), boil, cool and rinse again.  The kettle should be clean and shiny but if not you can repeat the process again.

You can use this same method on your stainless steel pots and pans.  My mother has done this for years and her pots look as good now as they did the day she bought them 50 years ago.  Of course with your pots and pans you need to clean them first to get any food off and then boil with the cream of tartar.

Your kettle is now clean and shiny.

Good luck and let me know if you have any other tips on cleaning your kettle or your pots and pans.
