What are Bristan taps made of?
All tap bodies are manufactured from brass. Most are then plated in chrome, however, Bristan also use gold and coloured finishes.
What’s the best way to clean my Bristan taps?
These finishes are softer than chrome plate and special care must be taken when cleaning. It’s best to use only diluted washing up liquid. Alternatively, you could use an e-cloth or Bristan’s own Goldbrite cleaner. On gold plate products specifically, it’s best not to use cream cleaners as they contain powerful solvents. It is also not advised to use bleach. Wiping after use will also help to avoid the formation of scale caused by hard water drying on the surface or soap deposits that will be more difficult to remove if left for a long period of time.
