Your kitchen faucet is what you most likely use to clean your dishes, fill cups with drinking water and use for water when cooking or cleaning. How many times have you thought to look at the underside of your kitchen faucet though? Is it a spot that you remember to clean often? If not, it definitely should be. Kitchen faucets are a breeding ground for mold, mildew and lime buildup, and should be cleaned at least once every couple of weeks. I’m going to show you a super easy way to clean a kitchen faucet so you can feel good about the water you are using on a daily basis.
1. Clean soft stains with water. You should be able to remove small smudges without any cleaning solution. Simply wiping the faucet down with a wet rag should be enough to remove most soft stains. Always blot the faucet dry after it gets wet.
2. Dip the microfiber cloth in a bowl of vinegar and rub the cloth over the aerator on your spray head (the part where water comes out). Next, use a toothbrush to gently scrub the same area to loosen any residual debris or food that may have gotten stuck in the holes. Let hot water flow through the nozzle for a few minutes. You’re done.
3. If your kitchen spray head is on a retractable hose, it never hurts to use the microfiber cloth to give that a scrub, too. (Think about all the sudsy and food-filled water it’s probably been dunked in. Ew.)
4. Dry off excess water. When your facet is wet from use or cleaning, wipe it down with a dry rag to wipe off water. Blot water off gently.
If you don’t blot off water, minerals can accumulate, creating a build-up that can be hard to clean.
Your sink is sparkling. On the inside and the out.
