Aluminum Foil Trick
Step 1: Take a square shape of aluminum foil
Using a piece of Aluminum foil can remove rust and tarnish from the faucet, therefore, we want to share this tip with you. If you have aluminum foil then you need to cut it into a square shape (a square shape is not compulsory since you can cut it in any shape but the square is better than another).
Step 2: Crumble and soak in warm water
After cutting the aluminum foil, now we need to crumble it and soak it in vinegar or warm water.
Step 3: Scrub the faucet
After the process, put out the foil and rub it on the faucet body like a rag or brush until the foil becomes brittle or too dirty. While the foil becomes crumbled or dirty, then take another aluminum foil and do the same work and keep the work continuous. You should be careful not to press the foil too hard on the faucet body or you will damage the chrome finish.
Step 4: Rinse with warm water
Once you have used the aluminum foil, then you should use a rag to wipe the faucet and knobs and rinse them off with warm water.

Once you have cleaned the faucet and its knobs, now it’s time to dry the faucet with a soft, dry cloth.
Tip: Keeping the aluminum sheet damp will give you the best results.
