How to Clean Limescale Off Taps?!(Part II)
Mix up a solution of 1 part water and 1 part plain white vinegar. Into a small bowl, pour approximately (120 mL) of water and (120 mL) of plain white vinegar.
Soak a cleaning rag in the solution. You can use a kitchen towel, old t-shirt, or any other rag you don’t mind using for cleaning purposes.
Scrub the limescale roughly with the rag for a minute or so. This will help loosen up some of the limescale.
Wrap the rag around the calcified area on the faucet. You can add a rubber band or ponytail holder around the outside to keep the rag secure. This may be useful if you plan to leave the rag in place overnight.
Leave the rag there for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. For the most effective results, let the vinegar solution work its magic overnight.
Remove the rag and wipe off the limescale buildup. After a few hours, or on the next day, remove the rag and use it to buff away the calcium deposits. The limescale should simply slide off of the faucet, and any milky film should disappear with moderate scrubbing pressure.
Use a toothbrush or safety pin to unclog spray holes. After an overnight vinegar soak, stubborn deposits should come right off with a little encouragement. You can use an old toothbrush to scrub around these areas. Or, use the sharp end of a safety pin to pick out the remaining bits of limescale.
Rinse off the faucet with fresh hot water.
