Materials:

  • Jar opener
  • Toothbrush
  • Plastic cup
  • White vinegar
  • Rag or cloth

Directions:

Step 1

Grab a jar opener, and grip the aerator as hard as you can, then loosen it and remove it. Press your thumb at the bottom of the aerator, then push the inside filter out, and give them a good rinse until most of the gunk is out. Place them inside a plastic cup, then add the vinegar until covered, and leave it for about 2 to 24 hours. It would be best to leave it overnight for cleaner results, then after 24 hours, give it a quick scrub to make sure that it’s totally clean, rinse, and wipe well.

Step 2

Before reinstalling, brush and wipe the faucet itself with a toothbrush or rag, then open it up, and let the water run to flush out any debris left or stuck inside. Wipe the inside of the aerator as well, then snap it back in, grab the jar opener again, wrap it around the aerator, and tighten it up.
