How to Make Dull Faucets Look New Again

Cleaning the faucet is essential for its correct functioning, but also for aesthetic reasons. Over time, lime and mineral buildup can cause your faucet to become dull and full of white spots.

Although there are many chemical products for cleaning the faucet, it is better to adopt natural solutions that do not pose any risk to our health and the environment and that at the same time are capable of disinfecting and making a now turned-off faucet shine.

For the first trick to clean a dull faucet that we suggest, you only need a little flour and a clean cloth.

Wipe the faucet with a dry cloth to remove any dirt from the surface, then sprinkle a little flour over the entire surface and leave for 10 minutes.

Finally, clean well with another dry cloth until all traces of lime are removed. Your faucet will be very clean and shiny.

The second trick is perhaps the best known, and consists of rubbing a lemon cut in half directly on the metal part of the faucet.

In addition to being a good disinfectant, lemon is very effective against limescale. Once finished, rinse the faucet with warm water and dry thoroughly with a clean cloth.

The third and last trick to clean the faucet is the most complete, since it also allows us to clean the aerator well and therefore facilitate the flow of water.

Start by unscrewing the aerator and placing it in a glass. Pour in some vinegar and baking soda and wait for the effervescent reaction to finish, then use a toothbrush to clean it thoroughly, rinse it and dry it.

Then sprinkle some baking soda on the faucet and pour in some vinegar. After two minutes, scrub well with a toothbrush and finally use a clean cloth to remove residue and dry.
