Some people prefer having a warm bath at the end of a tiring day, while others require it to kickstart their mornings. No matter what your preference, bathing in a clean bathroom can go a long way in lifting your mood. While there are several tips and tricks to clean this area, the taps and other fittings are often neglected, leaving them stained and making your bathroom look old and dirty.

Here are ways to clean them.

1) Use Lemon Juice and Baking Soda

Make a paste of 1 tbsp. of lemon juice and 1 tsp. of baking soda. Apply it over the faucets and let it rest for 20 minutes. Now, make another cleaning solution by mixing vinegar and water, 1 cup of each. Pour this into a spray bottle and spray on your bathroom fittings. Scrub the area with a sponge or cloth and rinse thoroughly with water.

2) Use Orange or Lemon Peel

To add a glossy shine to your bathroom fittings, take an orange or a lemon peel. Rub it over the surfaces of your bathroom fittings. This helps remove stains, leaving a lustrous finish. Then wash with plain water and pat dry.
