Clearing clogged shower heads

By on July 15, 2014

Clogged showerheads are annoying. When mineral deposits build up, water flow slows to a trickle. We tend to get used to it, and put up with it day after day, week after week. But, it doesn’t have to be that way; simple showerhead maintenance is a snap.

If yours runs slow, get a cup of white vinegar, pour it into a small plastic bag, then secure the plastic bag with the showerhead completely immersed in the vinegar. You can tape the bag around the pipe leading to the showerhead or even use a rubber band. Then leave it in place overnight. This only works for chrome-plated heads and should not be used for brass or gold fixtures.

The next morning, remove the bag, wipe the showerhead with a damp cloth and shower away!
