Calcium deposits from hard water tend to accumulate on surfaces throughout the bathroom. When water gets on your bathroom sink, it leaves those calcium deposits behind as it evaporates. That means you need to keep an eye on those deposits and clean them off on a regular basis. While you could buy an expensive calcium deposit remover at a local home improvement store, it is much more cost-effective to simply make your own cleaning solution.
Create a cleaning solution consisting of 4 cups of white vinegar and 2 cups of baking soda. Mix the white vinegar and baking soda together in a bucket.
Soak a sponge thoroughly in the cleaning solution, and apply it liberally to the entire surface of the sink. You may need to apply the solution several times if the calcium deposits have built up over time.
Clean the bathroom faucet by filling a plastic bag with the cleaning solution and placing it over the faucet. Tie the bag to the faucet with a piece of string, or secure it with a rubber band.
Allow the solution to remain on the faucet for five to 10 minutes, then remove the bag. Discard it, and pour warm water over the faucet until all the calcium deposits are gone.
