How To Clean A Sink Sprayer

A kitchen sink with a pull-out sink sprayer comes in handy when doing the dishes or cleaning the sink. If the sprayer suddenly stops working, it could be due to a build up of mineral deposits and debris. To clean it, you must first dismantle the sprayer from the sink by using a wrench to unscrew the base of the hose from where it joins the sink. Remove the spray head to access the aerator. Next, remove the diverter from its sink recess and soak it in a cleaning solvent, such as white vinegar or lemon juice. Use a stiff bristle brush to scrub away the accumulated deposits. When you are confident the sink sprayer is clean, rinse the components in water and dry with a paper towel. Reassemble the components and enjoy the convenience of your kitchen sink sprayer once again.
