Imagine, you turn on the faucet and water gushes out like a waterfall! You will certainly not appreciate that. Here is where aerators come into picture. These devices evenly distribute the water flow and water then comes out in the form of droplets. These are an efficient way of saving water and also reduce splashing. The amount of water passing through them is controlled and measured using the unit, 'gallons per minute (GPM).' Such devices are also an efficient way of reducing your utility bills.
Always make it a point to rinse the sink after use, and wipe it with a clean cloth. Thorough cleaning should be done once a week. Don't use a steel wool pad or any abrasive scrubbers to clean the sink, as they can cause scratches on the surface of your sink. A little care and regular cleaning can keep your stainless steel sink sparkling.
