Have gloves and soft cloths on hand when cleaning your bronze faucet.

How to Care for a Rohl Tuscan Bronze Kitchen Faucet

by Josh Arnold

A Rohl Tuscan bronze faucet will give your kitchen a casually elegant appearance with plenty of Old World charm. Richer and warmer looking than gold or silver finishes, bronze faucet finishes are just as durable. Simple daily maintenance along with an occasional cleaning to remove any hard water stains will keep your bronze faucet looking its best.

1 Pat the bronze fixture dry with a clean, soft cloth after each use to reduce mineral build-up and water spots.

2 Wipe the faucet down with a gentle, clear liquid soap with a neutral PH balance every few days for a more thorough cleaning. Rinse the faucet with warm water to remove the soap and pat dry with a soft cloth.

3 Remove hard water spots and mineral build-up with a 50-50 solution of white vinegar and warm water. Put on household gloves to protect your hands. Dip a cloth into the mixture and gently rub it over the faucet. Rinse the solution off with warm water immediately after cleaning, as prolonged vinegar contact can damage the bronze finish.

4 Buff and polish the faucet with liquid wax, such as Flitz Faucet Wax, occasionally if you prefer a shiny surface.

Items you will need

  • Soft cloths
  • Clear liquid soap with a neutral PH balance
  • White vinegar
  • Household gloves
  • Liquid wax (optional)

Warning

  • Avoid cleaning the bronze faucet with antibacterial soap, which can leave a residue, and ammonia, bleach or alcohol, which can damage the finish.
