How To Clean Your Shower Head

Though your shower head usually only comes in contact with water and soap, it still needs some up keep to look good and function properly! Hard water build up and soap can cause blockages in your shower head and reduce the water pressure and power. You will need a plastic bucket, baking soda, vinegar, water, and a microfiber cloth to clean your shower head.

1. Mix a half cup of baking soda with 4 cups of white distilled vinegar in the plastic bucket. Make sure to pour the vinegar in slowly as it will get very bubbly when reacting with the baking soda. Then add a cup of water to dilute the mixture, and mix it all together. 

2. Remove your shower head and completely submerge it in the baking soda and vinegar mixture. Make sure all the water jets are fully covered with the mixture and let it sit for at least 4 hours. 

3. Once the shower head has had time to soak, reattach it and test the water to make sure all the jets have been unplugged and to see if the water pressure has improved. 

4. Wipe down your shower head with a microfiber cloth to polish it and remove any leftover streaks or buildup.
