  1. It’s grit from a build-up of Adelaide water in your kettle. I’m sure it doesn’t do you any harm, and it’s only noticeable when you warm your cup. And when you get to the dregs. Which I always leave anyway. However, if you want to avoid distressing your clean freak friends, boil the kettle and pour in copious amounts of bicarb of soda, boil again. Then empty out and boil a couple of clean kettles. This doesn’t resolve the problem completely, but does help quite a bit.

  2. SQ – you were the one taught me the importance – in fact, necessity – of warming one’s cup.

    Bec, in truth, I think everyone is just so scared of touching anything on my desk that even if it had grown a carpet of mould they wouldn’t have touched it.

  3. Is it Adelaide water residue, or kettle-innards residue? I only ask ‘cos we get a similar thing here, though it is much less pronounced since I’ve started using only filtered water in the jug. I love Brita.

  4. Any guesses as to what that gritty stuff might be?

    I’ve some suspicions. A roach clip near the kettle would confirm them.
