Will shine and repel water: what to rub on your plumbing
The hard water flowing from our taps very quickly covers plumbing fixtures such as faucets and showerheads with white stains. So it takes a lot of effort to make them shine, wiping them of limescale several times a day. But there is a tiphack, how to make this task easier.
OBOZREVATEL dealt with popular tricks and tells about two of them. One is well-known, but not working, and the other will really help keep faucets shiny.
A non-functional tiphack
The Internet often recommends rubbing glycerin on faucets to repel water. It does create a protective film on the faucets, but it is very unstable. Any contact with soapy foam dissolves the glycerin coating and the problem returns in full force. Therefore, it makes no sense to use this product.
What's the best way to rub on faucets
But what really protects against water and limescale deposits is paraffin. The oil film that it forms on the surface is not so easily destroyed by soap, that is, this protection will really be more reliable.
To protect faucets from lime, take a paraffin candle or just a piece of paraffin and rub it thoroughly on all sides. After that, immediately rub the substance over the faucets with a dry cloth. It is best to choose a lint-free microfiber.
