How would you describe a clogged shower head? This article walks you through how to clean or replace the shower head in your bathroom. It only takes a few minutes to clean!
If you’ve been experiencing a blockage, and I don’t mean the kind that requires more fibre in your diet, consider cleaning your shower head to improve water flow and give you a better shower experience.
Basically, a shower head (like mine, pictured in this post), is constantly spouting water out, every day at your beck and call. Naturally, water has calcium and other mineral deposits which over time can (and will) clog faucets, showerheads and coffeemakers (have you seen our blog post on cleaning a Keurig yet?). This isn’t harmful per se, it just slows the flow. It constipates, if you will, your system.
There are many corrosive products that are out there claiming to blast away calcium, lime and rust (catch my drift?) which I’d never allow in my house. Certainly, all you need to dissolve this build up is a good soaking in some plain white vinegar. The acids in vinegar naturally break down limescale and rust and allow your shower heads to work like new again. You can also use this trick for cleaning and unclogging faucets.
