Fingerprint-covered chrome faucets are like a chipped manicure. At a glance, you can tell it once looked awesome (and shiny and new), but now it just looks trashy. Yeah, we said trashy. Gasp all you want, but it’s true! Here’s how to fix it.
Clean your faucet. Before you reach for the wax paper drawer, go into the pantry and grab our favorite common cleaning product: white vinegar. Mix together a concoction of half white vinegar and half water. Then, using a toothbrush, scrub away the ugly fingerprints and soap scum spots.
Wax paper time! Once the water and white vinegar mixture is dry, vigorously rub the chrome faucet with wax paper. The wax will rub off of the paper and onto the faucet, keeping future fingerprints from landing.
