Cleaning tips for kitchens and bathrooms taps

Lemon fresh

Lemon juice can do the work of a bottle of chemicals. Soak cottonwool in lemon juice and drape around the base where limescale collects. Leave to soak for an hour, then scrub with an old toothbrush and rinse. You might need a second application. Vinegar works well, too. Lemon and vinegar are acidic so keep them off stone or marble worktops.

A clog-free spout

The end of the spout seems to be a magnet for limescale. Soak a wad of cotton wool in vinegar or limescale remover, wrap it around the tap and secure with a rubber band while it works its magic, then rinse. Or make it easier with Lakeland’s clever Limey container. Just fill with limescale remover and fit it over the tap head.

Fast action

Deal with stubborn limescale deposits around taps with LimeLite Active Gel, or for a clogged up shower head, try LimeLite Limescale Remover Spray. Buy online at, or at your local supermarket.

Tap Tip

If you are thinking of buying a new tap and your water is especially hard a non-shiny finish such as brushed steel or brushed nickel may be your best bet, as marks won’t show as readily. Select a design without too many dirt-gathering nooks and crannies.
