Use Vinegar To Remove Built Up Crud Around Faucets

This Sparked Me!

When the minerals in the water begin to leave deposits around the faucets, soak and squeeze a rag out. Then wrap the rag around the area with deposits.
Take a cup of vinegar and using a microwave safe container, heat the vinegar until it's hot and near boiling. Pour the hot vinegar onto the deposits. The rag will keep the vinegar from going down the sink. When the rag cools, remove and scrape a bit. Most deposits will be gone. Repeat for deposits that are stubborn.

    That is my mom's trick, too. We just take old rags, soak them in vinegar and let them soak around the faucets or drains for a couple of hours. The crud just wipes away. I'll have to try heating the vinegar to see if it makes a difference.

    Another great use for eco friendly vinegar. Can't wait to try it. Thanks
