How to Get Rid of Limescale on Your Taps

Cleaning taps can be difficult, especially if you live in a hard water area. These stains indicate that your tap water contains a high concentration of minerals. Lime deposits on stainless steel are difficult to remove, no matter how hard you try. Specialized cleaning products are frequently ineffective, and the toxic elements they contain are harmful to your health. Fortunately, dealing with this does not have to be difficult.

In this article, we show you how to use our DIY tap cleaner to remove hard water and calcium deposits. The approach outlined below is all-natural, inexpensive, and produces outstanding results.

Homemade Tap Cleaner Recipe

Water mixed with:

  • 20% Vinegar
  • 5% Rubbing Alcohol (secret ingredient) **
  • 1 squirt of dish soap (1% or less)

** Rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) helps the vinegar break through any grease that may be on the tap.

Step-By-Step Instructions

10 Easy Steps to Remove Hard Water and Calcium Deposits From Your Taps

Step One:
Mix the secret recipe (see last steps above) of cleaning products, all of which are excellent at removing limescale.

Step Two:
Liberally spray the cleaning mix all over the tap.

Step Three
Wipe down with a microfiber towel.

Step Four:
Next, the most important bit is to saturate the microfiber towel with the cleaning mix. It needs to be dripping wet.

Step Five:
Wrap the towel around the tap, especially the hard-to-reach areas. Use string to secure contact with the hard water and calcium deposits on the spout.

Step Six:
Give it another spray and saturate. Make sure the mixture is making contact with all the soiled areas.

Step Seven:
Let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Step Eight:
Remove microfiber towel and wipe down. You should find that the mix has dissolved most of the limescale.

Step Nine:
For stubborn spots, take a small coin (about a 5 cent piece) and rub it over any remaining mineralisation.

Step Ten:
Wipe down and buff with a dry towel.


With just a few minutes of your time, you can easily remove those unsightly stains from your taps.
