JL: Can you easily go from a two-handle faucet to a single?
ME: Yes, a two-handle faucet can easily be replaced by a single. For the second hole, you can add a soap dispenser or you can place a hole cover over it. It is a cleaner look to have a single-hole faucet.
JL: What special care needs to be taken to keep the faucet looking clean and new?
ME: You can just use soap and water along with a soft cloth, nothing acidic.
Be sure to further complement your new sink with Franke’s custom cutting boards made of Iroko wood, which is harvested from sustainably managed rainforests. The cutting board is designed to fit perfectly right over the sink for optimum use and accessibility during food preparation. The dense wood does not require regular treatment with oil. To clean, simply wash the board with a moist cloth and mild soap and rinse with warm water only.
Franke uses Iroko wood for its durability and sustainability (Iroko is also used to make boat parts, outdoor furniture and custom cabinetry). To maintain its look, you can occasionally treat the board with mineral oil to help prevent the wood from absorbing too much water or liquids from foods.
