A less than polished bathroom faucet adds a lot of grunginess to your space, since the countertop is the first thing you see when you enter the bathroom. Unfortunately, this is often the reality given all of the grime and calcium deposits that accumulate on the faucet. The good news is that there is a way to keep your bathroom faucet looking clean and sparkly throughout the week. Here’s how to clean it the right way:
- Daily maintenance is important
Taking a damp cloth and wiping away all of the dirt and grime on and around your faucet at the end of the day will prevent a buildup of grime and other debris, keeping your faucets looking well kempt day in and day out.
- A vinegar and water solution is key
A all-natural solution of equal parts vinegar and water is an excellent all-purpose cleaner that will break down all of the mineral deposits, soap scum and other grime on your faucets. The solution is both environmentally friendly and very economical. Just remember to give the solution a few minutes to do its job. For a more heavy-duty solution for that tough-to-tackle grime, make a natural paste of baking soda and water.If the mineral deposits don’t come off easily once the vinegar solution has been sprayed on the faucet, you can take this up a level by soaking a piece of paper towel in the same solution and then wrapping the faucet in the soaked piece of paper towel. Leave it on overnight and by the morning, the calcium deposits should be all gone.
- Get yourself a toothbrush
You don’t need a lot of expensive tools to keep your faucets clean, you just need the right ones. In this case, because of its small bristles, a toothbrush is a great tool to get rid of the grime collecting in the nooks and crannies of your faucet.
- Buff and polish for extra shine
To take your bathroom faucets to the next level, consider getting yourself some stainless steel or brass polish to keep them looking shiny. Add some polish directly to your faucet and buff it in with a cloth.
