    • Clean the faucet surface with a clean towel to remove water spots. A lint-free cleaning towel, flannel cloth, or micro-fiber cloth is an excellent choice for this step. If spots remain, move on to the next step.
    • Mix 1 tablespoon of salt into 3 quarts of mildly warm tap or distilled water and stir the mixture until the salt dissolves completely.
    Spread the salt and water mixture over the faucet and scrub off the water spots with a bristle brush. Wipe the solution away, rinse and then dry the faucet with a towel.

    I'll try it. Thank you .
  • We have really awful water where I live and get spots even on chrome. I have an old 100% cotton washcloth under each sink in the house. After every use, I wipe down in order not to have a build up. Granted not everyone can do this in a busy household - even once a day will help, like before you go to bed.

    Try spraying with some WD40 . I let it sit for a few minutes and then wipe off excess. This will leave a coating on your faucet and help in between cleanings as it repels water.

    I clean my faucets with glass cleaner then spray them with lemon oil furniture polish and buff to a shine. It will help the water to roll off the fixture for a day or so without leaving spots.
