Comfort is on the Horizon



Regardless of whether your showerhead is a basic spout (which is attached to a pipe) or one with a hose and seven different spray settings, it still plays a pretty important part in your bathroom’s plumbing. However, over time, that fixture can become filled with grime and dirt — so it’ll require a good cleaning. And since you can’t exactly toss your showerhead into the washing machine, here’s how you can get it squeaky clean.

Why You Need to Clean Your Showerhead

Over time, any particles, sediments, or bacteria that are present in your water can cling to your showerhead. Think about it: Every time you turn on the water, all those particles can make their way onto your head and body — talk about yuck!

Another main reason you need to clean this fixture is that all that buildup can cause you to have lower water pressure. By cleaning your shower head regularly, you can ensure you have better water flow that isn’t bogged down by stuck-on sediments.

Cleaning Your Showerhead

Gather Your Tools

For this easy task, you’ll need a plastic bag (such as a food storage bag), white vinegar, a rubber band, and a soft-bristled brush, such as an old toothbrush.

Fill and Secure the Bag

Pour the white vinegar into the plastic bag, leaving a few inches of space towards the top — you don’t want it to be so full that vinegar pours out of it. Then, place the bag over your showerhead so the fixture is completely submerged in the liquid. After that, use a rubber band to secure the bag to the showerhead.

Wait a Bit

Allow the fixture to soak in the vinegar for a few hours — potentially overnight if the fixture is particularly dirty. However, if your showerhead has a nickel, brass, or gold finish, remove the bag after about 30 minutes to prevent it from damaging the finish.

Brush Away Grime

Once you’ve removed the vinegar, use the brush to gently scrub off any remaining gunk for a perfectly clean, free-flowing showerhead.
