A bathroom without a "shiny" faucet never seems clean.

There is something about a shining faucet that makes a whole bathroom seem clean, here are some simple tips as to how to clean the bathroom faucets
  1. Step 1

    Begin by deep cleaning faucets. Wet a cloth of full strength white vinegar. You can purchase a quart of white vinegar in the grocery store for about $1.00. Scrub down the faucet with the cloth. If residue and hard water buildup is present, you will need to remove it.

  2. Step 2

    Saturate the cloth with white vinegar. Lay the cloth over the faucets being sure to cover all areas that show signs of calcium buildup. This is the whitish crusty residue that clings around the faucets.

  3. Step 3

    Allow it to rest for 15 minutes to soften the calcium buildup.

  4. Step 4

    Remove the cloth and scrub the area with a soft bristled brush. The acid in the vinegar will soften the buildup making it much easier to remove with a little scrubbing.

  5. Step 5

    Rinse with cold water and dry with a soft dry cloth.

  6. Step 6

    Inspect the faucet area for any remaining debris or residue. Use a discarded toothbrush to clean under the edges of the faucets between the faucet and the base of the sink. This area tends to collect dirt and grime.

  7. Step 7

    Check the overflow vent for any dirt and grime that may have collected there. Clean with the toothbrush and rinse clean.

  8. Step 8

    Scour the sink with a little shampoo on a clean cloth. Shampoo is designed to remove body oils and will cut through soap scum and dirt leaving the sink sparkling clean. Wipe down with a clean dry cloth.

  9. Step 9

    Fill a spray bottle with undiluted rubbing alcohol. Be sure to clearly label the bottle to prevent accidental misuse. Store rubbing alcohol out of the reach of children.

  10. Step 10

    Spray down the entire faucet and sink area with rubbing alcohol and wipe with paper towels or a clean dry cloth. Polish to a shine.

And presto you should have those shiny faucets everyone envies

Tip about Houseplants

The water that comes out most faucets in the USA has been chemically treated to make it safe for drinking. The problem is that also makes it unsafe for most houseplants. One of the chemicals that will hurt your plants is chlorine. If can effect them even in small doses. Chlorine is actually a gas that is blown into the water as it leaves the water treatment plant.

Here is an easy way to get rid of chlorine safely...

Step #1 Find a container like an old gallon plastic jug or pitcher
Step #2 Fill the container with tap water and store it without any lid
Step #3 Leave the container open for 2-3 days.
Step #4 After a few days the water is safe to use on your planes

The chlorine will naturally dissipate from the water just like carbonation does from an uncapped soda bottle.
