    Cut a lemon in half and use it to rub over the chrome/stainless steel to help get rid of hard water spots. Try vinegar-soaked cloth around the discolored joint areas. Let it stay on for about 1/2 hour. Rinse both lemon and vinegar away.

    You need a acid to get rid of the build up. We use the works and a brush. You have to keep rinsing it and don't let it set on it or use a cleaner like lime away. Same thing. You can try plain old vinegar but since the build up is so bad it will take awhile. Use a small wire brush to keep brushing it off. With any of these cleaning methods it could discolor the metal so keep rinsing that includes vinegar.

    CLR worked for me. I also used it on a clogged up shower head. Lime away also works well. Just be sure to provide adequate ventilation,

    BarKeepers Friend. The best cleanser ever. Very gentle. I use it on everything and have never had a problem.

    Bar Keepers Friend is great but sometimes it doesn't work on heavy lime scale. There's a product my mom uses called Lime Away. But if you're looking for something of a DIY you can try vinegar and baking soda....It's fun to watch it bubble up ...and it will usually do a pretty good job of cleaning off lime. If the lime has eaten away at the faucet's surface, you may need to replace.

    Clean with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar, then coat with ST3, found on Amazon. It will then last for up to 6 months before needing to clean again. I love it! Saves time and energy, and it's the only product you will need for baths, stainless appliances, windows etc.

    Con una lija de agua de la más delgada y de deja remojado con un paño con vinagre previamente. Tallar con cuidado no raya el aluminio y sale el sarro.
