How can I clean my mixer taps in my kitchen?

Our mixer taps are easy-care and hygienic, due to their smooth surface, which allows hardly any dirt to settle on it, but we still need to do the cleaning frequently. Take a mild cleaning agent and go over the mixer taps a few times with the soft side of a sponge. Now rub them dry with a microfibre cloth.

How can I increase the longevity of my pull-out spray?

Our pull-out sprays make your everyday life a little easier, because they allow you to get the water to the part of the sink where it is actually needed. Just make sure that the hose does not develop any kinks. This can damage it, causing it to start dripping.
If the hose is no longer gliding smoothly back into the body of the tap, just need to simply apply a little mixer tap lubricant as soon as the first signs start to show, the hose will then glide back into place quickly and directly, just as it did before.

What should I do if my mixer tap is spraying?

This is usually caused by limescale that has accumulated in the mixer tap. Instead of reaching straight for an aggressive cleaning agent, adding a little citric acid or vinegar to your cleaning water should solve the problem.
To clean it, wipe the fine mesh attached to the tap outlet clean. Go over it again with a soft microfibre cloth. The trick to preventing a spraying mixer tap is to clean it regularly, so limescale doesn’t get the chance to build up.

What should I do if my mixer tap is dripping?

This is either due to limescale deposits in the mixer tap cartridge, or the seals are no longer fit for purpose. Unless you’re very adept at DIY and have a well-equipped toolbox, it’s best to call a sanitary specialist to deal with this. If you’re up to handling it yourself, clean any calcified areas of the seals or mixer tap with citric acid or vinegar. If the seal has become porous it should be replaced using the right tool. Once that’s done, everything in your kitchen will be back in order again.
