Cleaning your Kitchen Tap | Bathroom Tap Cleaning | Removing Limescale

Caring for your brassware

It is important to clean your taps regularily to remove any possible damage from limescale build up and and any acidic residues that may dull the finish. Quality brassware finishes are hard wearing and easy to clean but need a little attention to ensure they will withstand the wear and tear of a busy household.


  • Never clean kitchen taps with aggressive cleaning products. Common cleaning agents including the ubiqutuous chlorine bleach and cleaners which use formic, acetic or hydrochloric acids should never be applied to any brassware.
  • Abraisive scourers, polishes or sponges should not be used as it will dull the lustre of your taps over time.
  • Do not use any steam cleaners, since high temperatures can damage the surface.
  • We recommend citric acid-based products to remove any limescale residue.Always follow manufacturer's guidelines.
  • Distilled white vinegar can be a cost effective cleaning agent - should only be applied for up to 30 minutes.
  • Your should never mix cleaning products.
  • Do not spray the cleaner directly onto the tap. It’s better to apply it to a soft, lint-free cotton cloth.
  • After wiping and leaving it to take effect, rinse thoroughly with clean water. 
  • Then wipe dry with a dry cloth for sparkling shine.
