Waterfall tap cleaning tips

  • For an everyday clean, try using a microfibre cloth and nothing too abrasive.
  • Lemon is the secret ingredient to remove all limescale. Simply cut your lemon in half and position directly onto the tap, leaving for 1 hour. If that doesn’t work, you can try a cloth soaked in vinegar and tie it onto the tap using a plastic bag.
  • Avoid getting toothpaste directly onto your waterfall basin tap as this can damage the coating, especially if your taps have a gold or brass finish.
