AbstractA water/soap sprayer for attachment to a kitchen faucet includes a sprayer unit having a handle section and a nozzle section having an outflow nozzle end. A water flow conduit extends through the sprayer unit for transferring water through the sprayer unit and to the outflow nozzle end, the water flow conduit including a Venturi passage section for accelerating fluid flow therethrough. A detergent flow conduit extends through the sprayer unit and is connected in fluid connection with the Venturi passage section of the water flow conduit within the sprayer unit. A water flow control valve is mounted within the sprayer unit, the water flow control valve operative to restrict and permit water flow through the water flow tube, the water flow control valve in the water flow conduit positioned upstream from the Venturi passage section of the water flow conduit. A detergent flow control valve is mounted within the sprayer unit, the detergent flow control valve operative to restrict and permit detergent flow into the Venturi passage section of the water flow conduit. A flexible water supply conduit and a flexible detergent supply conduit are connected, respectively, to the water flow conduit and the detergent flow conduit and respectively to a water source and a detergent repository. The sprayer unit is operative to clean items by actuation of the water flow control valve and the detergent flow control valve whereby a water/detergent mix is output through the nozzle section of the sprayer unit.
