Fill a spray bottle with vinegar and saturate three or four paper towels with it.
Wrap the towels around the fixture tightly. Let the towels sit overnight to break up the soap scum.
Remove the paper towels in the morning and discard. Combine 2 tsp. of liquid dish soap with 1 qt. of warm water. Dip an old toothbrush into the warm, soapy water.
Scrub the faucet with an old toothbrush. Rinse off the faucet with clean water and dry with a towel.
Add a dime-size amount of baby oil to a soft washcloth. Rub the baby oil over the chrome fixture to restore its shine.
