Please note: not descaling your
kettle may invalidate your guarantee.
● When limescale starts to build up
on the heating element, buy a
suitable descaler and descale your
kettle. After descaling, boil with
fresh water several times and
discard. Clean any descaler off the
kettle - it can damage the parts.
● Some regions of the country have
chalky water. This makes boiled
water look cloudy and leaves a
deposit on the side of the kettle.

with regular cleaning.
● Alternatively, to reduce limescale
build up, use filtered water to fill
your kettle.

Keep hot drinks out of children’s reach.
Don’t drink while holding your baby. If you’re passing someone a drink,
make sure a child isn’t underneath.
Keep your kettle, and its cord, well back from the worktop edge so that
children can’t grab them.
Keep children away from the kitchen work area.
For baby’s bath, run the cold water first, then add the hot. Mix well and test
the temperature with your elbow before you put baby in.
Teach children about hot things.
run cold water over a burn immediately, then get medical
help. Don’t stop to remove clothing.
