Water spots are like stained grout: They both just seem too hard to clean to even bother. But you don’t have to settle for dull faucets or spend hours scratching away the caked-on spots because we found a no-scrub solution you’re going to want to try out this weekend.
The secret tool you need is probably already in your kitchen cabinet: white vinegar. Vinegar is a powerhouse cleaner, and you don’t need a special product with all the harsh chemicals (and high price tag) when you have this cleaning superstar on your side. Just soak a rag in plain vinegar, wrap it around the faucet with water spots, and go find something to do.
While you watch TV or read a book, the vinegar goes to work breaking down the calcium and hard water deposits so that when you come back an hour later, all you have to do is rinse the area and give it a quick swipe with a sponge.
NOTE: Don’t be deterred if some of the water spots are left behind after one treatment. Although most should lift away in the first round, areas with extreme build-up may take several treatments to shine like new again. Just keep treating the area with the same steps. Vinegar is cheap, so it shouldn’t set you back more than a couple of bucks.
