Geberit DuoFresh Concealed cistern and actuator plate

Geberit DuoFresh Concealed cistern and actuator plate combination with active odour removal is a solution to all bathrooms. Odours are unpleasant and rooms sprays or open windows are not that effective. The most effective and environmentally safe solution is the Geberit DuoFresh ConcealedCistern with Sigma40 Actuator. The air is directly suctioned out of the WC ceramic appliance through the flush water inlet, purified through active carbon and released back into the room. Geberit DuoFresh is integrated in the proven Geberit Duofix WC element as well as in the GIS Geberit installation system.

Kitchen sink designs and styles

Drop-on or Lay On kitchen sinks: Most stainless steel kitchen lay-on sinks come in a wide range of measurements, so you can find the best fit for your cabinet size. Select between different configurations of drainers, bowls, reversible or back-stand models, overflows, tap holes, wooden frames, etc. The options are as varied as your needs. Lay-on kitchen sinks can be delivered with wood supports at the sides (below the rim) which aid installation while providing structural reinforcement.
Drop-in or Inset kitchen sinks: Kitchen sinks were traditionally of the ‘drop-in’ type, that is, with the rim of the sink sitting on the work surface. Drop-in kitchen sinks can be mounted on virtually any worktop using the provided clip-and-bolt fasteners, which adjust to the thickness of the surface for a tight, non-slip fit.

How to remove mineral stains in your bathroom

Quality of water varies from area to area. The most common problem related to bad water quality is high calcium or mineral content.  This causes white or creamy deposits that are very difficult to remove. The problem is that by the time they start to bother us, it has become so large that it starts looking ugly.

To remove calcium stains from tiles and glass try soaking a cloth in vinegar and lemon juice or make a paste from vinegar and baking soda and soak the affected area. After about 10-15 minutes scrub with a rough sponge and rinse with clean water.  Repeat until all deposits are removed.

Another idea is to use oven cleaner applied to the stains. Scrub with a rough sponge until all marks are gone.  Oxalic acid (Ethanedioic Acid) is also useful but beware, always us protective gloves and glasses since it is poisonous. Although it acts on iron compounds, it might help with calcium deposits since it is also used in automotive radiators to remove scale.
