Kitchen faucet care & maintenance

How to clean your kitchen faucet?

Cleaning your faucet does not have to be a time-consuming task. Follow these simple tips to easily keep your faucet looking like new for years to come!

What you'll need:

  • microfiber cloth
  • vinegar
  • toothbrush

The procedure:

  • Dip the microfiber cloth in a bowl of vinegar and rub the cloth over the aerator on your spray head (the part where water comes out).
  • Use a toothbrush to gently scrub the same area to loosen any residual debris or food that may have gotten stuck in the holes.
  • Let hot water flow through the nozzle for a few minutes.
  • If your kitchen spray head is on a retractable hose, it never hurts to use the microfiber cloth to give that a scrub, too.
Restrictions for faucets.

Although BLANCO faucets are very easy-to-clean, please take the following precautions in mind to avoid shortening the lifespan of your faucet

  • DO NOT use strong abrasive cleaners, metal scrub pads or steel wool. These will scratch and dull the surface of the faucet.
  • DO NOT use cleaners beyond soap and water.
  • DO NOT use soap with beads or sparkles as they may clog the pump.
  • DO NOT soak or submerge the pump.
