How To Clean Tarnished Chrome Faucets


If you are looking to make your chrome faucet gleam like new, tarnished chrome needs to be cleaned regularly. Tarnish is a result of oxidation and can accumulate on chrome surfaces due to buildup of dirt, grime, and oils. Fortunately, chrome is relatively easy to clean and restoring it to its original luster is a fairly simple process.

To clean a tarnished chrome faucet, you will need the following materials:

  • Dish soap
  • Warm water
  • Soft cloth
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar

To begin, mix a few drops of dish soap into a bowl of warm water. Dip a soft cloth into the soapy water and wring it out. Wipe down the chrome faucet with the cloth, making sure to clean all areas of the faucet.

If there is any stubborn grime that is not coming off with the cloth and soapy water, make a paste out of baking soda and vinegar. Apply the paste to the chrome faucet and scrub it gently with the cloth. Rinse the faucet with warm water and wipe it off with a dry cloth.

If you have any stubborn spots that still remain on the chrome faucet, you can use an old toothbrush to scrub them off. Dip the toothbrush into the soapy water, scrub the area, and then rinse with warm water.

Finally, you can help to protect the chrome faucet by applying a small amount of car wax with a soft cloth. This will keep the faucet protected from tarnish and allow it to remain shiny and bright.

By following these simple steps, you can have your chrome faucet looking like new in no time. With regular cleaning and protection, the faucet should remain looking its best for a long time.
