Secrets for Cleaning the Rust Off Bathroom Fixtures & Keeping Them Looking New


If I can find a way to make cleaning easier, I will use it to its full extent.There's a trick I learned from my grandfather when he would clean his tools and I've been using this same trick for cleaning the rust off our chrome light fixtures and shower rods. I'll also tell you what he used to keep the rust from coming back.

    I agree that Bar Keeper's Friend and Baking Soda does a good job on some things. However, I have a problem with using aluminum foil on faucets, sinks, toilets, tile, etc. the foil combined with either of the 2 powders will scratch the finishes. The 2 powders are good for pots, pans and grills but not for any pan you bake in since scratches will cause the bakery recipes will start to stick to the pan or cookie sheet. I have a 30 year old Caphalon set of pans that look almost new and I use them nearly everyday.

      @Susan S Agreed! I have 6 aluminum bread tins/loaf pans I bought in 1961 when I was first married for $1.15 each pan! NONE of those pans have EVER been in water! After each use and while still warm, I used a paper towel to wipe those pans out really, really well and then stored them (after cooled well), in plasric bags in my freezer until the next time of bread baking. Used a little piece of tapered wood to get into the corner seams to keep them free of oily-butter build-up. I still use those pans to this day, not every week anymore (because there are no more kids at home and no more boarders and mega lunches to pack so only use about once a month now and freeze the bread until we need it...those pans have a few knicks but basically the aluminum is still visible and personally I think they are as good as the day I blought them in that little hardware store in King City, Ontario, Canada!

    i've had great results using scrunched up foil alone.
