When we did our bathroom makeover last month one of the many changes we made was switching out the faucets. I’m just going to be honest, I was NOT sad to see the pink flower faucets go! I’m sure at some point in time they were super cool but not anymore. To bring the bathroom into the current decade I partnered with Price Pfister and picked out a very classic-style faucet. One of my favorite things about this faucet is the swivel spout, it makes rinsing out the sink much easier!
I’m really into the classic look of polished chrome right now because it’s so clean and bright. I know most people are intimidated by polished chrome because they think it’s hard to clean, and keep clean, so today I’m going to show you 2 simple tricks for how to clean chrome fixtures and keep them clean.
Here’s what you need:
To clean the faucets all you need is a high quality microfiber cloth, I use the EnviroCloth because it’s by far the best. First dampen the cloth, then wring it out.
Next use the cloth to wipe down the entire faucet. Wipe down the handles, the spout, and don’t forget the back of the faucet and in between the handles.
You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to get all the water spots and fingerprints off, without any cleaning products!
Now that the chrome faucet is clean it’s time for a little trick to keep it clean! What’s the trick? Rain-X.
Rain-X is a fantastic product for repelling water off glass but it also works great on surfaces like polished chrome. Spray Rain-X onto the faucet and then use a clean, dry cloth to rub it all over, making sure to cover all the places we just cleaned.
I even sprayed a little in my sink to make it easier to get my daughter’s toothpaste off the porcelain. Let it dry and then test it out. After it was dry I poured water all over it to test it out. It was pretty cool to watch the water bubble up and vanish right before my eyes!
It’s pretty amazing isn’t it?! Now I’m able to enjoy my clean, shiny faucets and not have to stress about how to keep them clean!
This would probably work on most faucet finishes but I’ve never tried it on anything other than polished chrome. This is a great trick for the kitchen faucet too since it’s the most used faucet in the house!
