How to Clean Your Shower Head – DIY with 1 Step and 1 Ingredient.
We have hard water here in Austin. What makes water hard? Hard water has high levels of calcium and magnesium. Austin tap water is considered moderately hard and can, therefore, cause problems with washing machines, dishwashers, showers, and more. The buildup of minerals in hard water increases with heat contact making shower heads especially grungy. The buildup decreases the effectiveness of shower heads. But, there’s good news! I’ve got a DIY Shower Head Cleaner that is super easy and involves just one ingredient! Make this shower cleaner at home and save a lot of time and money.
Cleaning the shower in our bathroom
The shower head in our master bathroom was especially clogged. Maybe this is because we like to take hot showers, as opposed to the kids’ warm shower preference. As you may know, I love to use vinegar as a cleaner. It’s really cheap (compared to harsh chemical cleaners) and works amazingly well. So, I thought I would try using vinegar to clean the hard water buildup on our shower heads.
DIY Shower Head Cleaner – 1 Step, 1 Ingredient, Super Easy!
All you need is a baggie, rubber band, and white vinegar. You can get a huge container of vinegar for a great price on Amazon. Or, try Costco for cheap vinegar too. I keep a large container in our pantry. First, pour enough vinegar in a plastic bag to cover the shower head. Then, wrap the bag around the shower head securing it with the rubber band. We have three showers in our house. At our house, I wrapped up all of the shower heads and I let my bags sit overnight. When you remove the baggies, you will be amazed at how clean the shower head is. You may want to use a towel or cloth to remove any loose particles. Enjoy your clean shower!
