How to get limescale off shower or bath sets?
Spraying lemon juice or vinegar directly onto them won’t work as it will just drip off, not allowing the acid enough time to work on the scale. The place you’ll most often notice build-ups is the spout of the tap, often leaving a thick white layer of scale.
- Soak a rag or a cloth in vinegar or lemon juice and wrap it around your tap, making sure that all areas are covered.
- Secure it in place with an elastic band and leave for an hour.
- Occasionally squeeze the cloth to release more of the acid into the crannies of the tap.
- Remove the cloth and wipe away the limescale. It should come away easily.
- If the limescale around the spout still won’t come away completely, cut a lemon in half and screw it onto the spout until it stays in place.
- Leave for another hour and then rinse and scrub away the remaining scale. Use a scouring pad on tough limescale but only on the underside of the spout as it may scratch the finish on the faucet itself.
