Metals in the bathroom can add a glimmering touch unsurpassed by any other material. But how do you keep from rusting?
Check out the below tips if you LOVE metals!
- Prevent Rust!
If the surface of the metal gets scratched rust is sure to follow. This is due to oxidation of the alloy metals. If you get a scratch just take your clear nail polish and coat the scratched surface. The nail polish helps prevent oxygen from getting in to the alloy causing rust.
- What to do if your chrome gets rust.
All you need to do is make a thick paste with Bar Keeper’s Friend and water. Clean as much of the rust off that you can with the paste and a soft rag.
- Remove hard water stains from your metal fixtures or deco material.
Those unsightly stains on your metal hardware, like faucets? You know them. They’re impossible to get rid of. Try scrubbing down the metal with…a lemon. Just a lemon. This all-natural trick will make your bathroom smell great and the acid in the citrus will break down any hard water stains.
Not a fan of lemon? Try wrapping the metal in rags soaked with distilled white vinegar. The stains will break down in a similar way and you won’t get lemon juice in your eye.
*Use a cleaning toothbrush to get in those hard to reach places, too!
