Clean your shower head fast using common household supplies

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Stars Realty

Have you ever noticed while you are taking a shower that some of your shower head nozzles aren't spraying water the way they should.  It's not uncommon that a typical shower head has a handful of clogged spray nozzles which restricts water flow and this can reduce your water pressure.  What if I told you that there is a very good chance that you could fix this problem in about 15 minutes using common household supplies and no plumbing experience and no tools are required?

Your shower head likely has developed mineral deposits that are blocking your shower head water passages.  These mineral deposits create a crust like build up that limits your shower water from spraying through the shower head nozzles.  The good news is that in most cases this is a quick fix and you can disolve these mineral deposits and have your shower and water pressure back to normal in an hour or less.

Thanks for the helpful tip. Tomorrow morning going to check the spray nozzles. Am use  to changing the shower filter thinking that takes away most of the minerals that could clog the nozzles. Vinegar is a great cleaning tool to have.

Thus is a great suggestion  I have told clients in the past to do this before home inspection

Vinegar is an multi-purpose cleaning agent and adds some zest to a salad as well.

We use vinegar ( and soda ) a lot around here for cleaning. We have well water and it's also hard water. I'll check the shower nozzles today. Thanks for the tip. D

I do believe I tried this once and made quite a mess. LOL

I don't think my elastics were strong enough. 

Having a well we see our share of mineral deposits. Certainly worth giving this another try!

I just unscrew mine and soak it in the sink with vinigar and scrub then re-install.  Not hanging a baggie on it.  I've been doing it every six months for years.

Nice simple yet effective tip.  I know people that drink apple cider vinegar for the health benefits.  As badly as I have neglected my nutrition and health, I wonder if I shoud be drinking CLR? LOL 19 Benefits of Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar + How To Drink It • A Sweet Pea  Chef
