How to Get Super Shiny Faucets

The simple way to the shiniest, cleanest faucets and taps -- plain white vinegar, undiluted. Just pour a little onto your cleaning cloth (I love microfiber cloths the best) and use straight up.

Remember that a lot of unusual gunk gets stuck around the faucets and the sink. An old toothbrush (which should be in your cleaning kit anyway) or another thin cleaning brush will make quick work of removing that. Just spray with Vinegar spray and let sit for a few minutes before working all that gunk and grime away. (I've found that cleaning brushes meant for cleaning out turkey basters are a great additional cleaning tool! This is a good use for those...they're long, thin cleaning brushes. Great for hard to reach cleaning jobs!)

I love microfiber cloths too. I have been using them for years. They make cleaning so much easier and faster. I got some really good ones at simplygoodstuff.com. Here is a link...

I've also heard that you can put vineger and baking soda in a baggie and tie that baggie around the faucet or shower spray and the stuff will loosen up the hard water and gunk? Is this true?

Hi John - actually it's just vinegar that you use like that. :) It does work great! Definitely give it a try...
