MOST of us are happy to serve ourselves a glass of water from our kitchen sink.

It's quick, it's easy, and it's usually safe to do.

But unfortunately, while the water itself may be clean, sometimes the faucet isn’t.

A faucet’s surface, like any other surface, can become filled with guck and grime over time—but many of us wouldn’t realize this because of the way they face downward.

One woman on TikTok, who goes by @VicolsFamilyHouse, said it’s important to check your faucets regularly.

“Need a new obsession?” she began. “Welcome to the oh-so-satisfying world of Clean Tok.”

She grabbed a bottle of white distilled vinegar and poured it into a small Ziploc bag.

She stuck the faucet head in the Ziploc bag and secured it shut with a rubber band.

After letting it sit for about 15 minutes, we saw the bag of vinegar filled with bits of dust and dirt.

She polished off the faucet by using a toothbrush and dish soap to scrub it down.

This method, the woman said, is a lot more cost-friendly than installing an under-sink or a whole system to purify the water in your home.

When a commenter asked how often she does this, she said it’s good to tackle the sink once a month or once every two months.

Viewers loved the hack.

“OMG how easy! Until now I just always moved to another house when the faucet looked like this,” one person joked.

“I needed this,” added a second.

As for how to clean your sink’s surface, @VicolsFamilyHouse said that white distilled vinegar will do the trick as well.
