Remove limescale with distilled white vinegar

A few days ago someone returned a Loogun to us as it had suddenly stopped working. It turns out she lives in an area with particularly hard water and the nozzle was blocked with a little limescale buildup, causing it to not spray.

Remove limescale stains on your toilet

Distilled white vinegar is very good at removing limescale. It's a very popular choice for removing limescale from toilets. To do so, soak toilet paper in vinegar and applying it to your toilet for an hour. Then flush the toilet paper away and the limescale should be gone. You may need to empty the water out of the toilet first if the stains are below the water.

Use it to clean your Loogun

Back to the Loogun though, distilled vinegar is cheap and is great at cleaning out the tubing and nozzle in your Loogun. Simply fill the reservoir with vinegar and run it through your device. When halfway through the reservoir, leave it to stand for 10 minutes to let the vinegar clear the tubing completely and then run the rest through. Once done, fill it with water and run some water through to remove the vinegar smell. Your Loogun should now be as good as new again.
