How to clean, descale, and unclog your shower head naturally
There are millions of cleaning products out there designed to help us clean away all the crazy buildup that water can leave on our showers, each one claiming to be better than the last. There are cleaners for soap scum, hard water, descaling, unclogging things, and polishing other things. Of course, as with most things, the best solution is the simplest!
Your shower head is prone to buildup of all sorts of nasty stuff, and it can be a pain to clean if you do it the hard way. You can cure your shower head of its grimy blockage with a bag of vinegar. All you have to do is fill the bag, place it around the shower head so it’s submerged in the liquid, and tie it to the neck with a twist tie (or anything else, really). Leave it there overnight and the cleaning will be handled for you.
The picture above shows how this works. It’s a pretty simple trick to doing an otherwise frustrating job.
