Removing stubborn soap scum from shower head If your shower head hasn’t been cleaned for some time you may have build up of soap scum and dirt inside the head, this can be difficult to remove. Half fill a bag with vinegar, insert your shower head and tie with a rubber band (funnily enough I couldn’t find one so I used a hair tie) and sit overnight.Use an old toothbrush to give a gentle scrub and remove any build up.
If you’ve been experiencing a blockage, and I don’t mean the kind that requires more fibre in your diet, consider cleaning your shower head to improve water flow and give you a better shower experience. Basically, a shower head (like mine, pictured in this post), is constantly spouting water out, every day at your beck and call. Naturally, water has calcium and other mineral deposits which over time can (and will) clog faucets, showerheads and coffeemakers (have you seen our blog post on cleaning a Keurig yet?). This isn’t harmful per se, it just slows the flow. It constipates, if you will, your system.
