Tap. How To Clean Taps

Shiny taps give a bathroom or kitchen that luxe appeal, so keep yours buffed up.

Every day: Prevent limescale dulling your taps by drying them off after use with a soft cloth.

How To Clean Taps

Keep taps looking good by using a mild bathroom cleaner, or white toothpaste is effective for most tap finishes (except brass or gold) - add just a dab and buff to a shine.

Limescale: Limescale-removing cleaners are useful, especially in hard-water areas - if it's persistent, soak a cloth in the product and wrap it around the tap. Follow the manufacturer's instructions as you could cause damage to the taps if you leave it on too long. To remove from chrome taps, rub with half a lemon, then rinse with water and buff dry.

Always check manufacturer's instructions first. Always try a test patch first. If you are unsure as to whether the item you are cleaning is suitable for our instructions, take professional cleaning advice first.
