Old fashioned cleaning.

Our new (but old and limescaled) mixer tap for the bath arrived today. It is very heavy and in need of a good clean. I've Googled limescale removal methods a million times but never actually done it.

Yet, here i find myself sitting in our sunny and breezy garden dabbing vinegar onto cotton wool balls, willing them to clean up my taps. Articles available online give differing times for how long i should leave them. I think I'll give it a good few hours.

And then, after the 3rd and 4th attempt I'll be out with the brass.cleaner!!


  1. I can report it worked brilliantly! Well worth a go!
