Our shower heads are designed to keep us clean and provide a powerful burst of water every time we step into the shower. Though, after years of normal wear and tear a shower head starts to slow down and we aren't getting the same invigorating showers that we once were. When the pressure starts to slow down this usually means that we need to give our shower a good scrubbing to remove any mineral buildup that may have accumulated over the years. There are two simple ways to do this and these tips will teach you how to clean your shower head the right way.
The key to successfully scrubbing away any grime from your shower head is to use vinegar. Depending on the type of shower head you have at home (or your personal preferences) you may be required to leave the shower head screwed onto the shaft, but that doesn't make it harder to clean. Regardless of whether or not you unscrew the shower head, you will be able to get a thorough clean that brings your shower head back to its glory days.
If you're able or willing to unscrew the head then you'll need to place it in a solution of vinegar.
Should your shower head not necessarily be caked with mineral deposits, all you'll need to do is give it a good scrub without any advanced techniques.
Sometimes you just can't unscrew the shower head without everything coming apart. You may also not have the proper tools to work such a job, but that doesn't mean your shower head is doomed to a life of mineral buildup.
You don't need very many tools with you to give your shower head a hearty scrub. Just remember to scrub the deposits from all of the holes and run your shower head under hot water to get rid of that vinegar smell and any leftover debris. Understanding how to clean your shower head will restore it back to its glory days and you won't need to bust your hump with any fancy methods or tools.
