How to get rid of limescale

White limescale on faucets doesn't look aesthetically pleasing and can ruin the faucet. Depending on the hardness of the water, limescale can take weeks or months to build up and cover the faucets with unsightly stains.

Chemical descaling agents can damage the protective enamel of some surfaces. But OBOZREVATEL has found effective ways to deal with this.

Toilet or bathroom cleaners will not help remove limescale; instead, they can damage the faucet. It's better to use natural products that are available in every home.


Vinegar will effectively clean the faucet. Apply a little vinegar to a clean cloth and wipe the necessary surfaces thoroughly.

If the faucet is covered with a thick layer of limescale, it's better to soak paper towels with vinegar, cover the faucet with them, and leave it overnight. In the morning, remove the towels and wipe again with a cloth.


Although vinegar is an indispensable cleaning tool, not everyone likes its smell. So you can use lemon, which will quickly help you deal with this problem.

Soak a sponge or cloth with lemon juice and wipe the necessary surfaces or mix 40-50 grams of citric acid in one liter of warm water. Dampen the cloth and wipe down the faucets.

Baking soda

Soda is also an effective tool in the fight against stubborn stains. Dissolve 3 teaspoons of the mixture in 100 ml of warm water and mix it to form a paste. Apply the mixture to the necessary areas with a cloth and leave it on for 2-3 hours. Then rinse it off with warm water.
