Tips

  • You can add lemon juice to the homemade cleaner to leave a citrus scent.
  • When polishing, use dry parts of the paper towel so you don't smudge the finish.
  • If you get spots, wet the area again and try once more!

Warnings

  • Clean the rest of the sink at the scrub stage so that you don't get dirt on the newly cleaned faucet!
  • If there's something stuck on that you can't scrub off, don't force it. Try another cleaner or nail polish remover. You don't want to break the faucet!

Things You'll Need

  • Water
  • Cleaners (Natural or store bought)
  • Rags, sponges, old toothbrush
  • Paper towels
  • Gloves (Optional)
