If you’re not a fan of harsh chemical cleaners, good old fashioned lemon juice or vinegar is an excellent cleaning agent when it comes to limescale deposits.
Simply soak a cotton wool pad in lemon juice and secure it over the tap head with an elastic band to keep it on place. Leave it to work for around an hour and after removal scrub with an old toothbrush for best results. You may need to repeat the process if the limescale deposit is very engrained.
Top tap tip
If you’re considering a new tap and live in a particularly hard water area you may want to consider a tap with a non-shine finish as it won’t show water marks so readily.
