Tip: How I make my chrome fixtures sparkle

This tip came from the source of most great tips--my mom. She kept an amazingly clean home considering she had 8 children (read: often messy, never dirty).

Most bathroom cleaners made for porcelain, ceramic, or marble don't work so well on the metalic-surfaced fixtures. They may clean them, but they don't leave them shining.

When my mom taught us to clean a bathroom, the final area to be cleaned was the chrome faucet and handles. She would take rubbing alcohol and pour a little straight over the fixtures. The result: sparkling clean fixtures. It was like the icing on the cake.

      I have polished my faucets and then followed with WD40 to repel water but I have also read after you dry the faucet wipe it with Wax Paper as it is supposed to repel the water also. Microfiber towels give them a great shine too if you wipe them after work in sink is done.

    Rubbing alcohol works great as a window/mirror cleaner, too. You can use it straight or dilute with water. I have used it to clean all sorts of things through the years, it dries so quickly, and kills a few germs along the way!
