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.
To clean your kitchen faucet, all you need is distilled white vinegar, a baggie and a rubber band or elastic hair tie.
Start by filling your baggie half way full with distilled white vinegar.
Any white vinegar will do. Vinegar is an amazing disinfectant and will help kill any germs and bacteria.
Pull the baggie of vinegar up over your kitchen faucet and secure it with your rubber band or hair tie and let sit for 20-30 minutes.
Remove the baggie and discard. Use a dish brush to remove any bits that are left on the faucet head and rinse with warm water.
All of your faucet’s jets should now be clear of any mold, mildew, lime build up and food particles, so you can use it without fear of spreading those things to other areas of your kitchen!
