Shower Head Clogs Be Gone – On the House

Shower Head Clogs Be Gone

By on April 21, 2014

Clogged shower heads 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 shower head 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 shower head completely immersed in the vinegar. You can tape the bag around the pipe leading to the shower head 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 shower head with a damp cloth and shower away!
