How to Quickly Remove Limescale from Faucets?

Hard water and chemical residue in soap and shampoo can easily clog faucets. You may notice scale flakes and whitish films of chalk on the faucet. Fortunately, there are several ways to descale the faucet that are common in most storage rooms.

For chrome taps covered with limescale, put vinegar in a plastic bag to descale and then soak in vinegar. Tie the bag with string. Let the faucet soak for a couple of hours. Rinse off the vinegar and wipe the scale with a soft sponge. You can then wipe the fleshy side of the lemon on the faucet to remove any mineral buildup.

If you have a brass faucet, don't use orange-based or powder-based cleaners to remove powdered limescale. These types of detergents can damage or scratch the surface treatment agent. Instead, dip the paper towel in white vinegar and wrap the wet paper towel around the faucet to decalcify. Secure with a rubber band or clip. Soak until the fabric is almost dry. Use a tough nylon toothbrush to wipe away any buildup. Wipe the faucet after use to prevent the scale from being removed. This method can also be used for chrome faucets.

Remove calcium buildup from the faucet.

  • Wear rubber gloves. They protect your skin from the chemicals and irritants in many calcium removers. Before you start cleaning, make sure they are free of dust. If the detergent is spilled, use gloves that cover all or most of your forearm.
  • Dilute the calcium remover in water. Mix one part calcium remover (e.g. CLR) and one part water in a bowl or old plastic container. Choose a container with recycling bins. For most faucets, 1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 ml) of each ingredient is sufficient. If there's not a lot of calcium building up, you can use undiluted white vinegar instead of CLR and water. This method takes longer, around 24 hours, but is not harmful to bare skin and is safe for most faucet surface treatments. Avoid using descaler or vinegar on iron or nickel faucets. These cleaners remove the paint and residue that you want to clean.
  • Pour the mixture into a plastic bag. Use normal sandwich bags. It doesn't matter whether the plastic bag has a zipper. Pour gently. If you are concerned about spilling the mixture, pour it into a plastic bag through a funnel.
  • The small bag is mounted on the faucet. Tip the plastic bag a little to allow the mixture to collect in a corner. Gently slide the open end of the plastic bag over the faucet. Then, dip the faucet in the mixture. Secure the plastic bag to the faucet with elastic bands. Let the faucet soak for an hour or two.
  • Remove the plastic bag. Loosen the elastic band. Carefully slide the plastic bag out of the tap. Take it slow Read the label on the cleaner for disposal instructions. Detergents like CLR are biodegradable and can be poured into sewers or toilets.
  • Scrub off any loose debris. Use an old toothbrush or magic cloth. Gently scrub back and forth. If the toothbrush or towel is too sticky, rinse it out regularly. Continue this process until the deposit is completely removed.
  • Dry the faucet with a microfiber cloth. Move along a soft circle or back and forth. Particular attention should be paid to the faucets in order to slow down the accumulation of calcium in the future. Continue until the faucet is completely dry.

Cleaning and maintenance steps for RBROHANT faucets.

  • Step 1: Clean the surface of the Rbrohant faucet, best to decalcify it with a soft cotton cloth (only slightly moistened if necessary). By gently wiping it, you can remove most of the dirt without damaging the material. Please do not use sponges, brushes, or microfiber cloths.
  • Step 2: Limescale residue is usually deposited in corners and joints. Please use a mild citric acid cleaner for this. Please do not spray the concentrated liquid directly onto the Rbrohant faucet, but onto the cloth.
  • Step 3: The inflator can be easily disassembled for cleaning. When placed in warm water with a small amount of detergent, the deposit will dissolve after about ten minutes of exposure. Many Rbrohant products are equipped with anti-calcification technology. With this fast scaling function, you can simply wipe the scale off the tap.
  • Step 4: Rinse the faucet thoroughly with clean water.
  • Step 5: Repeat the first step again to remove any cleaning agent residue and give the surface a shiny finish.
