How to protect faucets from plaque

Limescale appears as a result of exposure to hard tap water. When mineral salts settle on surfaces for a long time, they form deposits that are difficult to clean with conventional means.

Experts note that this is not only an aesthetic problem. In the absence of regular cleaning, aggressive salts can even damage surfaces. Read the OBOZ.UA article on how to protect faucets from plaque.

First life hack

Most detergents only superficially remove white plaque. Thus, for a high-quality thorough cleaning, several factors should be taken into account, including the features of the plumbing.

Cleaning experts advise trying an effective method based on an affordable pharmacy product. A life hack with an alcohol solution or a liquid intended for skin care is gaining popularity on the Internet. Apply a small amount of the product to the faucet, spreading it evenly on the surface.

Then rinse thoroughly with running water to remove any residue. This will create an additional protective layer that will prevent the formation of limescale and limescale deposits.

Regular treatment with these products will help to increase the life of the faucet and make it shine to a high gloss. However, it is always a good idea to conduct a test on a small area before using any product. Make sure that the solution will not cause damage or discoloration to the faucet.

Second life hack

To protect the faucet from hard water, experts advise waxing the faucet. Then you should take a clean cloth and wipe the surface again for a better shine.

Products containing acids will also effectively remove white deposits.
