Keep these tips in mind:
  • To prevent the buildup of mineral deposits in your sink, always remember to wipe your faucet with a dry cloth after using.
  • Wipe your faucet weekly with a soft cloth and a non-abrasive cleaner. Try mixing ½ cup of vinegar and ½ cup of water to create your own solution.
  • Do not use ammonia, bleach or other abrasive cleaners. This might damage your faucet’s finish. Instead use a homemade solution that's budget-friendly. Read more about homemade solutions here.
  • Use an old tooth brush to clean the seams and crevices of the faucet. Make sure you gently brush in a circular motion to avoid chips and cracks.
  • If you have a heavy soap build up on your faucet, wipe it with white vinegar or a non-abrasive cleaner.
