Removal of faucet parts with considerable hard water build up can be difficult.
- To remove the mineral deposits, soak a towel in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and warm water.
- Then wrap the towel around the bonnet or skirt of the handle.
- Let the towel sit for approximately five to ten minutes.
- Using a rubber glove, rubber jar opener for grip or a strap wrench, remove the bonnet of the handle by turning it counterclockwise.
