The lavatory faucets have become extremely stained due to hard water, even after just one year of having replaced them.

    Hello Cyn.

    Spray paints are not meant for water imersion and this faucets design looks less than ideal. The spray paint would flake off ( as it did on the bottom of my flower pot with the saucers —->water exposure)

    Have you considered contacting your faucets manufacturer...they could advise you of a lime-away-type product that will erase and eliminate the hardwater stains without damaging your newly installed faucets finish.

    I have hardvwater too and need to keep up with the calcium removal , especially notable in my hot pot boiling water for tea.
    Such a pretty faucet, I hope you can track down a suitable soliution to erase the calcium build up. Best wishes on your quest for a solution.


  • Spray paint will likely not stick to this, especially with water moving over it on a regular basis. Have you tried CLR cleaner?

  • That is your water source. You would need to wipe down after each and every single use. Painting them will not help much. I would invest in a whole house filter system first.

    Hi, use some CLR calcium lime rust remover, then dry the fixture after each use to maintain the cleaner look

    Yes. Lowe's has the spray paint just for faucets. It works great and comes in all the new colors.

      Oh great to know. Thank you for the information.

    White distilled vinegar, soaked in a cloth, wrapped on the surfaces and left for 30 min. may remove water/calcium marks. You may have to repeat. As stated above, it's wise to wipe faucets and sink top with microfiber cloth after each use. Contact your water supplier, or use whole house treatment system, as advised above.

      I have used the vinegar technique but never left it for 30 min. It always came back.
