Is Your Faucet a Fungus Funhouse?

Yes, the Handy Imp knows that many of you clean your kitchen sinks regularly, perhaps with a toothbrush to get into those crevices. One area that might get overlooked is the actual spout portion. Here is where that hardwater buildup begins, but it can be even worse than that.

Go check now.

Is there any pink mucousy stuff sprouting and throbbing around the holes where your water comes out? Are you drinking from this faucet? Filling pots for cooking from here? Try not to think too much about it; too late now. But give it a good cleaning right this minute. Wouldn't hurt to give it a good dousing with a disinfectant.
