How To Properly Maintain Your Chrome Faucet

If you were to take a quick peek in a wide variety of kitchen, you may find most of the faucets are looking dingy and dull. Most people are intent on keeping their kitchens clean, but simply do not know how to properly maintain their faucets. The following are some tips on how to properly maintain your chrome faucet:

The one thing that must be understood about a chrome faucet is that abrasives can not be used to clean them. Abrasive cleaners will only make them dull and can actually do more harm to their appearance. A mild dish detergent and warm water is the best thing to clean them with and, for the tougher dirt and grime, use a toothbrush to gently scrub them. For most faucets, this will be enough to make them look shiny and clean.

Built-up grime, however, may require more than dish soap. In this case, undiluted vinegar can be used with a soft cloth. Using the cloth, wipe them gently and thoroughly. The faucets should come back to a shiny appearance very quickly when using vinegar.

Faucets that have stains on them may have the owner thinking that it is time to replace it with a new one. However, a little silver polish could do the trick. Just remember that when you are done polishing, it must be rinsed and wiped dry.

Unfortunately, many homeowners do not know the proper way to keep their chrome faucet looking new. The most important thing you can do is never use anything abrasive to clean it with. The only thing this will accomplish is making it dull. Instead, take the time to clean off the day’s grime with a little bit of dish soap or vinegar and you will keep it looking as though you just installed it.
