Dealing with hard water build up on your faucets? Check out how to easily remove limescale from faucet. This simple tip helps remove limescale. It really is the best limescale remover.
If you have been a reader for very long you know that I have complained before about the really hard water we have at our house. I actually prefer hard water for showering, however it makes a mess of things like the shower door and our drinking glasses. The hard water also causes some limescale build up on faucets.
Some of our faucets like the sink faucets are easy to remove limescale from faucet by unscrewing part of the faucet head and soaking in vinegar. My bathtub faucet is not so easily cleaned so I came up with this easy trick to remove limescale. If you are struggling to remove limescale from faucets check out these simple tips.
To start you will need a plastic Ziploc bag, a clip, a microfiber cloth, and some vinegar. Pour about 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups of the vinegar in the plastic bag. Place the Ziploc bag over the faucet head so it is covering the area with the limescale. Then, twist the top of the bag and attach the clip so it keeps the bag on the faucet. Make sure that the faucet head is still submerged in the vinegar. Set a timer for 20 minutes and let it soak.
After 20 minutes is up come back and check the faucet head. My limescale build up was really bad so 20 minutes removed some, but not all of the limescale. Wipe down the faucet head after checking it and then add the Ziploc bag back onto the faucet. Set a timer for another 10-20 minutes depending on how much build up you still have on the faucet.
After the timer has gone off remove the Ziploc bag and wipe down the faucet. All of the limescale should be removed from the faucet. Rinse the faucet with some water to remove all of the vinegar and you can now clean the faucet as you normally would.
If you have a faucet with a delicate finish I would recommend checking the faucet every 5 minutes instead of 20 with the vinegar soak. Vinegar could remove or damage the surface finish. It’s best with a delicate finish to start slowly with the vinegar to avoid any damage.
You can see below how clean my faucet is. Not only does it look way better but it also has better water flow now that it has been cleaned. If you are looking for how to easily remove limescale from faucet this is the best tip!
