How to Clean Bronze Faucets

Bronze faucets can be found in many homes and establishments, as they provide an elegant touch to a sink area.
Bronze is highly durable and resistant to water damage and other stains, making it perfect for faucets and sink areas. The bronze surface is easy to clean. The most important factor is to find a cleaning agent that will keep the bronze finish looking polished and streak-free. By combining a few simple cleaning agents right at home, you can create an all-purpose cleaning solution that can be used daily on all your bronze surfaces.

Step 1

Moisten a soft cleaning rag with warm water. Rub over the faucets.

Step 2

Wipe once more with a clean, dry cloth. This will remove loose buildup and prevent water spots. This routine is many times all that will be required to keep the faucets clean.

Step 3

Mix a cleaning solution in a bowl by combining 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 cup flour.

Step 4

Stir ingredients with a spoon until a consistent paste has formed.

Step 5

Dip a cleaning cloth in the solution. Rub it onto your bronze faucet. Allow the mixture to stay for 10 minutes.

Step 6

Wipe clean with a damp, soft cleaning cloth. Wipe once more with a dry cloth to absorb moisture and to prevent water spots.
