I’ve discovered a simple and effective way to clean a faucet head that leaves it sparkling and free of grime. The key is to start by unscrewing the aerator, which is located at the end of the faucet. Once removed, soak it in a solution of equal parts vinegar and warm water for about 30 minutes to dissolve any mineral deposits that may have accumulated.
While the aerator is soaking, use an old toothbrush and some mild dish soap to clean around the base of the faucet head.
Scrub gently to remove any dirt or residue. After the aerator has finished soaking, use a toothpick or a small brush to dislodge any remaining debris, such as lime scale or calcium buildup. Rinse both the aerator and faucet head thoroughly with water to ensure all the cleaning solution and loosened deposits are removed.
Finally, screw the aerator back into place, making sure it is snug but not too tight. With these simple steps, your faucet head will be as good as new, providing a steady and clear stream of water in no time.
Detach the faucet head from the hose or pipe.
Soak the faucet head in vinegar for 15-30 minutes to remove mineral deposits.
Scrub the faucet head with a toothbrush or small brush to remove any remaining residue.
Let the faucet head dry completely before reattaching it to the hose or pipe.
Check the faucet head for any remaining residue or buildup, and repeat the cleaning process if necessary.
