  1. Remove the aerator from the faucet. You can use a wrench if need be.
  2. The aerator is made of a few component parts, namely a rubber washer, the aerator, and the aerator housing unit.
  3. The aerator screen is on the housing unit. Clean this using a small brush and warm water. If need be, you can soak the part in white vinegar to loosen any sediment still remaining. If you notice any mineral or rust build up, loosen this as well.
  4. Inspect the aerator itself. If the aerator is damaged in any way, it may be time to replace it. You may also have to install a new rubber washer as they can wear out easily.
  5. Once finished cleaning the aerator and all of its parts, you can put the aerator back together and then reattach to the faucet, using a wrench if necessary.

You’ll need to repeat this process for all of your faucets that have an aerator installed. Keeping your faucet aerators clean will ensure that they are doing their job of conserving water.
