Copper-bottomed pots, candlesticks and metal pans, faucets in the bathroom and kitchen – all those metal objects that are an integral part of your home, are at the same time very hard to clean. Or at least, you cannot clean them in the same way like you do with the rest of your household. Fortunately, there are some pretty simple methods that would definitely ensure your successes in cleaning metalwork of any kind – with no stress, strain or hassle whatsoever on your part.
The best cleaning solution for metal objects, especially kitchenware is a mix of white vinegar and salt. Wet the surface of the pan or pot you want to get cleaned, then sprinkle the above mentioned ingredients and scrub the surface well, until all tarnish is gone from it.
The same result can be achieved by using an old and pretty simple method. All you need is… a lemon. Cut the lemon in half, take one of the slices and sprinkle salt on it. Use the prepared tool for scrubbing your metal items well until all grease, stains and dirt are gone. You will not be able to achieve a better result with any cloth or sponge you will find on the market.
Wax drippings are hard to remove from candlesticks. Or rather, it seems nearly impossible to get rid of them without damaging the finish of the item. If you thought this to be a universal truth, think again. Just get the candlestick in question and put in the freezer for ten to fifteen minutes. Once the wax is frozen, it can easily be removed – with no damage done whatsoever.
Calcium buildups on the faucets in your kitchen and bathroom are inevitable. But they are also not such a pleasant view, so it is better to remove them as quickly as possible. You can do that with ease by simply using a lemon halt or wedge and rub the flesh side of it against the stain which needs treating. For starters, you will get rid of them, and your faucets will even smell good.
As you can see, cleaning metal is not something to be scared of. It can be done quickly and easily, in case you are equipped with the right knowledge and several simple tools of trade. You can have perfectly clean metal kitchenware in no time using the methods described above.
