Struggling with a streaky and visibly dirty faucet, even with your best intentions? Cleaning it after every use seems tedious. A TikToker, whose trick has garnered over 30 million views, shared a solution you likely already have at home.

A low-cost method to clean a grimy bathroom faucet

You don't always need expensive cleaning products to get the job done. Often, household items not typically associated with cleaning can be used very effectively.

The TikToker, well-known for her tips on keeping an orderly household, shared her tried-and-true method for handling faucet grime and streaks.

The woman suggests using a candle to clean the sink or washbasin faucet. Simply rubbing the candle against the faucet, coating it with wax, is sufficient. Afterward, wipe off the residue and polish the faucet with a clean cloth.

According to the TikToker, this treatment not only leaves the faucet shining but also ensures water does not leave any streaks or dirt for some time.

The candle trick is a hit

The simple faucet cleaning tip has captivated many fans of the TikToker. To date, the video has been viewed over 30 million times. In the comments, viewers suggest other ingenious solutions as well.

Some viewers have mentioned that car wax achieves a similar effect. However, if not readily available at home, the cost may be an issue. Another user suggested using baby oil, claiming it offers a comparable result.
