Self-cleaning Faucet / faucet

Self-cleaning Faucet

An effective way to save water is turning the faucet off while scrubing our hands with soap.But when we use our hand to open the faucet, the soap on our hand will be attached to the switch. After we cleaned our hands ,we need to turn off the switch, so the hand become dirty again. Even if we do not use the soap, repeatedly using the switch will also pollute our cleaned hands. I just put the on-off control below the outlet of the faucet. The water itself will help us to clean the switch when we are washing our hands.Compared with sensor faucet, the self-cleaning tap will be more energy-saving and reliable.
