If you are having stubborn stain issues, you can soak the shower head even longer to see if it will blast away. If you wish, you can use some baking soda and rub that in to the small nozzles with a cleaning toothbrush which will help break down any additional limescale and remove the discolouration. Rinse it clean and you should notice a difference. Keep in mind that brown discolouration is ugly (I believe this has to do with iron content in water), but is not harming the functionality of the shower head. Green and white ‘crust’ is what you really need to work on, calcium and limescale are the culprits in clogging your shower head.
All you need for this trick is: a zippered bag or sandwich bag, heck you could even use a produce bag. an elastic band, tie wrap or hair elastic (I’m all about options). white vinegar (no options here, just plain white vinegar). Fill your bag about half way with vinegar and fasten the bag to the shower head. Do this by enclosing the mouth of the bag over the shower head and fastening it tightly in place with the tie. Ensure the shower head is fully immersed in the vinegar, it needs to be in order for this to work. Let’s say yours is on a hose (like mine), then I’d suggest taking the hose down and letting it sit in the tub. Let this sit for 12 hours, or 24 if the shower head is really crusty and you have an alternative shower you can use.
