Cleaning a Crusty Showerhead

1/8/2020 (Permalink)

Showerheads gather minerals and buildup overtime. They can start to look rather grungy after a few years, even months depending on the levels of pollution in your water. Hard water and minerals begin to form what looks like a barnacle, giving you an uneven or weak rate of water flow. Not only does it diminish the performance of the showerhead, it makes an unsightly addition to your bath or shower area.

We're not self-proclaimed plumbing experts, but, we do have an easy solution you can use without having to open your wallet! This quick and easy method can make your shower head look and act like new again in 6 super easy steps! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of vinegar
  • 1 zip tie
  • 1 plastic bag
  • Scissors

Eliminate showerhead stains and buildup with the following six steps:

  1. Fill the plastic bag with vinegar
  2. Loosely attach the zip tie to the showerhead
  3. Submerge the showerhead in the bag of vinegar, tightening the zip tie to the top of the bag
  4. Soak overnight
