Brushed nickel fixtures have a multi layer, giving them the charm of antique fixtures but the functionality of fresh ones. Manufacturers dull the shiny metal surface by sanding, creating etch marks that provide the fixtures a jewelry finish. Even though you can clean brushed nickel fixtures exactly the exact same way as any other metal fixtures, they require regular polishing to brighten and guard the pectoral layer. Keep them looking their very best with daily cleaning and monthly waxing.

Wipe fixtures clean using a soft, damp rag or chamois cloth daily.

Spray a cotton swab using glass cleaner or hard-surface cleaner to clean hard-to-reach areas, such as where the faucet and sink match.

Dry the fixtures using a soft rag or chamois cloth. Rub quickly back and forth to buff the nickel to a shine.

Spread a coat of paste wax, such as car wax, on dry fixtures every four weeks. Use a soft, dry cloth and polish in a circular motion.

Buff the waxed surface aggressively with a soft rag or chamois cloth till you’ve removed all the glue as well as the fixtures shine.
