2) Use Lemon Juice and Baking Soda

Make a paste of 2 tbsp. of lemon juice and 2 tsp. of baking soda. Apply it over the faucets and let it rest for 20 minutes. Scrub the area with a sponge or cloth and rinse thoroughly with water.

3) Use Baby Oil and Liquid Dishwashing Soap

Prepare a mixture comprising 1 tsp. of baby oil and 2 tbsp. of liquid dishwashing soap and scrub it on the fittings with a sponge. Wash the taps with water to wash away the mixture, leaving your taps clean and shining.

4) Use Vinegar

Using a soft-bristled brush, apply undiluted vinegar over the stained faucets. Let this sit overnight. Rinse it off ith water the following day, and you’ll notice the original shine returning to your fixtures.

There you go! Try these tips to avoid stains and marks on your bathroom fittings.
