If you love a clean bathroom or kitchen like I do, you probably consider soap scum your nemesis. Over time, you might not even notice the buildup — until it gets really bad. You’re probably wary of the problem in places like the shower or your bathroom sink, but soap scum can just as easily build up on your faucet handles. Happily, even if your handles are that clear acrylic or plastic, you can get rid of soap scum in a flash. No more foggy look!
1. The Tools
First off, you’ll need a few handy tools to get the job done. But don’t worry…you probably have everything you need. Just grab a flat-headed screwdriver, or even another tool with a thin edge. A butter knife might do fine if that’s what you have. Next, you’ll need some hot, soapy water, an old toothbrush, a rag, and a few cotton swabs.
