The lazy person’s guide to environmentally friendly, sparkling taps

Ok, this one is so stupidly simple it’s embarrassing.  Taps get dull for two reasons:

  1. Soap, which pretty much washes off with water and a very gentle rub and
  2. Limescale.

To get rid of limescale all you need is citric acid and a little bit of patience.  No nasty scrubbing required here at all – in fact, the last thing you want to do to shiny metal is scrub it.

Simply:

  1. Get the spray bottle of citric acid you prepared earlier.
  2. Aim at the tap
  3. Pull the trigger a couple of times
  4. Retire for a cup of tea (this is a fairly common step in my cleaning routine!)
  5. Wipe off with a damp cloth

Ta da – sparkling taps
