How should I clean a shower head?Updated 3 months ago

We like to clean the shower head with white vinegar. Pour the vinegar into a plastic bag and tie it to the shower head: This method is relatively simple and used for when you don’t want to remove your shower head completely. 

Slip a rubber band around your shower head and then fill a plastic bag with enough white vinegar to fully submerge it. Secure the bag with the rubber band and then leave it for a few hours to soak. If you don’t have a rubber band handy, you can always use duct tape or a hair elastic, anything that will secure the bag. Once you remove the plastic bag, run hot water through the shower head to dislodge the debris. 

If you are having stubborn stain issues or residual buildup that hasn’t quite released, use a toothbrush (or a toothpick for those intricate areas) to further scrub your shower head. To know more ways of cleaning your shower head, please refer to this blog.
