    Hi, everyone
    How do I do the above? I need to get some debris out. I've tried with my bare hands, a spanner around a cloth, also pliers around a cloth. Before you ask I do have strong hands

    1. Pour boiling water over it, then use rubber gloves / Boa wrench.
    2. Alternatively, remove spout, then blast water through the opposite way from normal, i.e. through the aerator you are trying to remove.
    3. To remove the spout there will probably be a grub screw, probably requiring a 2.0 or 2.5 mm Allen key, around the back of the base of the swivelling spout.

    Thanks very much, oldbuffer, I'll try the gloves and the boa wrench first.
