Most of the marks that build up on taps are limescale or mould. Both can be easily and effectively tackled with Scented Vinegar and a Copper Cleaning Pad or Linen Cleaning Towel. No need to reach for overpowering chemicals like bleach.
Chrome and stainless steel taps show their tarnishes more than enamel or plastic ones but they all have the same problem. It’s worth following these tips at least once a week to keep things hygienic.
Some people advise using an old toothbrush to get into hard-to-reach edges and corners on your taps. This works fine but it is unnecessary effort. A Copper Cleaning Pad will work into any crevices as you clean, meaning the job gets done much quicker.
To clean dirty taps quickly, spray Scented Vinegar onto your taps. In most cases, you don’t need to let it sit. If the build-up is particularly bad, you might want to leave it for a few minutes. Remember to get the head/nozzle of the tap - this is where a lot of the limescale will be sat.
Gently wipe with your Copper Cleaning Pad. There is no need to scrub.
To help stop the build-up of limescale on your kitchen or bathroom taps, wipe them dry after every use. Limescale is just the deposits of calcium that are left behind from the water. This is particularly important if you live in a hard-water area.
