Chrome fixtures are just one of those household items that garner a lot of attention and easily show water spots as well as stubborn stains. Whether your fixtures are shiny or blotchy will determine if this is the type of attention you want to be drawn to your bathroom. Chances are, you already have all you need to properly clean your chrome bathroom fixtures right in your home and even better, you have options. 

Choose the best cleaning method that works best for you, roll up those sleeves, and let’s make that chrome shine!

Soap & Water

It might seem simple, but soap and water are one of the most effective ways to make your chrome sparkle. Just add some dish soap to a container of warm water, dip a soft, clean cloth or nonabrasive sponge into the cleaning solution, and start scrubbing your fixtures. 


The acidity of vinegar works great to dissolve built-up grime on your chrome fixtures. Create a cleaning solution of vinegar and water using a one-to-one ratio, then use a soft cloth or nonabrasive sponge to clean the metal. 

Baking Soda

Baking soda has a reputation for its amazing household cleaning abilities. Create a paste of baking soda and distilled water then spread the mixture on your fixtures. Use a microfiber cloth to wipe the paste away, gently scrubbing as you go. 


Lemons are a popular cleaning agent. Cut 2 – 3 lemons in half, depending on the amount of chrome you have to clean, and gently scrub your fixtures with the pith of the lemon. For tough build-up and hard water stains, allow the lemon juice to sit on the fixtures for 3 – 5 minutes and repeat. 


  • You can use an old toothbrush for cleaning hard-to-reach areas such as creases or crevices under or around your sink.
  • Be sure to rinse your cloth or sponge frequently to remove any dirt and grime that has broken loose from the metal. 
  • Finish by rinsing your fixture in clean water and buffing it dry with a clean, microfiber cloth. 
  • It’s recommended to rinse with distilled water since tap water could leave behind new mineral deposits.
