now many people like to drink tea. They like to drink a cup of warm tea on a cool morning to make a beautiful start to the day. Whether it’s ceramic, glass or enamel vessels, there will be tea stains in the cup after one or two times of use, but over time, it has become the biggest flaw that destroys the good atmosphere. What can we do to get rid of these annoying traces? Let’s have a look with you.
The main component of tea scale is tea polyphenols, and a small amount of metal ions also participate in the formation of tea scale. Because green tea has more polyphenols, it is easier to form tea scale, while black tea and black tea after deep fermentation have less tea scale.
of course, the components of tea scale formed by different types of tea are basically similar. Tea scale is a polymer produced by the oxidation of tea polyphenols in air, so it is mainly formed near the water line and attached to the inner wall of the container.
showed that the molecular weight of the polymer in tea scale increased gradually with the extension of time, which means that the polymerization of polyphenols is still slow. Therefore, it makes sense that the longer the tea scale lasts, the harder it is to remove it.
Heavy metals are not the main metal elements in the tea stains; Oil film;, People mistakenly think that there is some heavy metal in it.
in fact, elemental analysis shows that most of the components of tea scale are carbon and oxygen, which come from polyphenol polymer, and a small amount of potassium, calcium, magnesium, aluminum, zinc, selenium and other elements. Metal elements mainly exist in the form of carbonates or hydroxides insoluble in water, and calcium is the main promoting factor for the formation of tea scale, mainly from the water of tea making.
lead, arsenic, cadmium, mercury and other heavy metal pollutants are not the main metal elements of tea scale, so there is no need to worry when drinking tea.
Easy to remove the tea scale in the cup
1, with salt
, first clean the thermos cup with clean water, then put salt on the place with tea scale, gently rub it on several times, and soon the tea scale will disappear. Or use a toothbrush with a little salt to brush every part of the cup carefully. Then rinse it again with clean water, and the mug will return to its original brightness. This method is not only suitable for the thermos cup, but also for some difficult to clean stains of all appliances.
2, with white vinegar
tea scale belongs to alkaline things, then we add a little acidic white vinegar to neutralize it, in the thermos cup, add the right amount of warm water, and then add the right amount of white vinegar, put it still, after another 1-2 hours, wash it with water.
3. Slice lemon with
to wipe off the tea stains inside the thermos cup, and then rinse it with clean water.
4, use toothpaste
, first wet the cup with water, then squeeze a little toothpaste into the thermos cup, soak for a while, and then use a clean rag to clean the tea dirt.
5 Grind the eggshell with egg shell
and put it into the thermos cup to be cleaned, then press the broken eggshell with a rag to scrub the cup, and then rinse with clean water to clean the thermos cup.
6, with bleach
, with kitchen special bleach diluted with water and poured into the thermos cup, shake several times, soak one night, the next day with water to wash, the tea stains will disappear.
7, add a small spoon of orange powder or orange juice with orange powder or orange juice
, fill it with clean water, and then place it for 2-3 hours, so that the tea dirt and tea set lose the adhesion, and it is easy to remove.
8, with potato skin
cut two or three pieces of potato skin into the thermos cup, pour 200 ml of boiling water, cover and place for 10 minutes, and then vigorously shake up and down a few times, you can see that the tea scale in the thermos cup is easily removed. Potatoes contain a lot of starch, which can absorb the tea scale in the thermos cup.
9. Coffee dregs can be used to wipe the inner wall of the thermos cup to remove tea dirt, or to drink coffee directly from the thermos cup to remove tea dirt. Because the activated carbon in coffee has strong decontamination ability and can absorb fine dirt.
