Cleaning the bathroom doesn't have to be tedious

The tap water in our faucets is saturated with limestone to varying degrees, so it's normal to find unsightly stains on plumbing fixtures, including faucets. You will have to clean them periodically. Luckily, there is a whole list of products that will help with this.

Sante Plus has collected several recipes. For all of them, you will need only inexpensive tools at hand.

Aluminum foil

Incredibly, ordinary baking foil can clean a faucet without scratching it. Moreover, it will cope not only with limescale but also with rust stains.

Take a roll of foil and cut off about 10 cm of material. Roll a ball from this sheet, lightly moisten it with water and rub the contaminated areas. Limescale stains will be removed effortlessly, and the faucet will shine again.

White vinegar and lemon juice

Any acids, including those used in cooking, dissolve lime deposits well. Even lemon juice will do. Simply cut the yellow fruit in half and rub the limescale stains with the slice. Do not be too economical: apply plenty of juice. From time to time, you can cut another slice.

Lime can also be used. To enhance the effect, you can sprinkle a pinch of salt on the surface you plan to treat.

Another food acid that fights limescale well is vinegar. Take plain white vinegar, apply it to a cloth or cotton pad, and thoroughly treat all the stains. The stains should wash off without a trace.

In addition, these two products can also be combined to enhance the effect. To get rid of deposits that accumulate on the shower wall, mix 0.5 liters of white vinegar, 0.5 liters of hot water and the juice of one lemon. Spray this mixture on the dirty areas and leave the solution on for about 5 minutes. Then wipe the surface with a cloth or sponge.

Baking soda

Baking soda is also effective against limescale. It softens the deposits and makes them easier to remove.

To make a cleaning paste, mix 3 or 4 tablespoons of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water. Apply the mixture to the stains, leave for a few minutes, scrub vigorously with a brush and rinse.

These products will be especially effective if applied to stains that are not yet old. Therefore, regular cleaning with one of them will ensure that faucets and other plumbing fixtures are always clean and shiny.
