How to Clean a Faucet

Faucets are a favorite among several homeowners to the mellow glow of the metallic and because they are time-tested as durable. Chrome is not warmer in colour than nickel’s silvery tones , yet cooler than gold, brass or bronze. Newer versions are less susceptible to damage than antique faucets. Whether your faucet has a brushed, matte or shiny finish, cleaning nickel isn’t any more difficult than any bathroom fixture.

Daily Cleaning

Dampen a soft cotton rag with warm, soapy water.

Wipe the faucet from grips to base with the rag. Pay careful attention to the bottom of the grips and spigot and around the base, which are areas where mineral deposits and soap residue can accumulate.

Rinse the rag and then wash the soap.

Buff the faucet before the soap is eliminated and no water stains are shown by the nickel.

Position Removal

Dampen a rag with vinegar.

Gently rub on spotty areas on the faucet with the rag. Do not scrub doing this can wear down the nickel finish.

Buff the faucet.

Major Cleanup

The faucet with disinfectant cleaner. Allow the cleaner sit for 5 minutes.

Scrub around the base of the faucet using an old, soft toothbrush to loosen soap, hairspray, toothpaste and other caked.

Scrub areas round the base of the faucet handles, spigot and some other place which you can not easily reach using a rag.

Wrap a large, thick towel round the base of the faucet.

Soak rag or a sponge with water.

Squeeze the sponge over the faucet, rinsing off residue and the cleaner.

Eliminate and then buff the faucet dry using a clean rag.
