Keep Your Faucets Shiny With These Natural Remedies

Much of the limescale we find in the home mostly resides in the bathroom and particularly on faucets. In fact, the continuous flow of water results in those stains that, in the long run, become dark circles of limescale. To make the faucets shine again there are natural remedies that have nothing to envy you chemical detergents. In fact, today I will show you some tricks you can use to make the faucets in your home shine again.

  • Vinegar

How can vinegar not be the first useful tip for having shiny faucets? So many times we rely on other solutions that pollute the environment when just a few drops of this wonderful ingredient would suffice. All you will need to do is take a nonabrasive sponge, dampen it and add a few drops of vinegar, then degrease all over the faucets and rinse. They will be as good as new!

  • Lemon juice

Similar to vinegar, lemon juice is also a perfect solution for shiny faucets, especially if they are steel ones. Take half of a lemon and pass it directly over the faucets making a slight pressure so as to release the juice that will act on the dirt. The lemon will become your natural sponge! Rinse the faucets several times with a microfiber cloth, and when it is dry you will find that there is not the slightest trace of lime scale or stains.

  • Baking soda

The abrasive action of baking soda is what is needed when we are looking at particularly dirty and encrusted faucets. At that point, the thing I suggest you do is mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with plain water until you get the consistency of a gel. Then put the mixture on a sponge (make sure it is not abrasive) and gently wipe it over the faucets, then leave it on for 5 minutes. Rinse to remove all traces of baking soda and goodbye dirt!

  • Bar soap

Who doesn’t love having the amazing scent of bar soap in the bathroom? Not just because of its smell, this ingredient, with the degreasing action on its side, is a real clean bomb! You’ll need to grate 1 tablespoon of soap and mix it with plain water to make a thick cream, then use it on a sponge to wash the faucets. When you rinse, be careful to remove all soap residue otherwise stains will remain.

  • Citric acid

Citric acid could not be missing from our roll call, which is ideal at times when limescale affects your faucets. What you will need to do is dissolve 1/3 lb. of the product in 1 quart of water, also add 6 or 7 drops of lemon essential oil for a good scent. Transfer everything inside a vaporizer and spray on the faucets, leave for 5 minutes and wipe with a sponge. Go, then, to rinse it all off and that’s it!

  • Cleaning mix

Finally, let’s see how to use a cleaning mix for the bathroom and in particular to make the faucets shine!


  • 1 cup of vinegar
  • 1 cup of lemon juice
  • ½ cup of water

Combine all the ingredients together, filtering the lemon juice well to get rid of the seeds and pieces of pulp. Transfer everything to a spray bottle and spray on the faucets to polish them and send away the lime scale. And there you have had a quick and easy trick with which you will have the perfect bathroom!


I remind you to try the methods first on an inconspicuous corner to make sure you don’t stain or damage the surfaces.
