You use a faucet to get water to clean stuff, but have you ever gave it a though as to how to clean your own faucet?

Plumbing  Centsablemama.com shared how to clean hard water stains off a chrome faucet. “I just soaked a paper towel in distilled white vinegar, wrapped it around the worst area and let it sit for about 30 minutes.  Then, I used an old toothbrush to get in those hard to reach spots and get the gunk out. You can use the vinegar-soaked paper towel to clean the rest of the faucet that doesn’t need to soak since vinegar is perfect for getting rid of water spots.  This method also works great for getting that hard water crust from the bottom of the faucet where it meets the counter.”
