Cleaning tips for black taps

Do you have a new bathroom (or maybe a new kitchen) with a beautiful black tap? Then you’re probably very happy with it! So of course, you want your tap to stay beautiful as long as possible. In general, matt black taps don’t have to be cleaned differently than other taps, like copper and stainless steel taps. You can use the same cleaning method for all the taps.

We often receive questions about limescale. We understand that it’s a shame if you see limescale on your taps. Do you want to prevent limescale? Then we recommend the tips below.

Our tips for cleaning black taps

Tip 1: If you clean your bathroom every week, we recommend using a mild detergent. For example, choose green soap. Rinse your products thoroughly after cleaning, so that no detergent is left behind.

Tip 2: If you’re done showering of done cleaning the shower, dry the shower set or showerhead thoroughly with a soft cloth. This way, you keep the products free of scale for a longer period of time. Did you just get out of the shower? Then you can simply use the towel that you used to dry yourself off. Of course, the same applies to black kitchen taps (Translated to Dutch: zwarte keukenkraan), shower taps and washbasin taps.

Tip 3: If there’s still limescale on your tap, you should try cleaning it with a mild detergent with citric acid. Do not use a detergent that contains hydrochloric acid, acetic acid, chlorine, phosphoric acid or any other harmful, aggressive acid. We also advise not to use any scouring pads, abrasives or microfiber cloths. These can cause scratches on your black tap.

Tip 4: Are there scratches on your black tap? You probably have a black permanent marker at home! Use this marker to get rid of the scratches and make them less visible.

Tip 5: Clean your bathroom (and kitchen) thoroughly at least once a year. You may not always realize it, but there can also be dust in your drawers or cupboards. So you find dust again just after you’ve cleaned. It is therefore important to empty everything and clean it thoroughly once a year.
