How to Properly Clean Your Shower Head

As a bathroom remodeler serving Austin TX, Luxe Kitchen & Bath knows that a clean shower head is essential for a good shower experience. Over time, mineral build-up, soap scum, and bacteria can clog your shower head and reduce water flow. Regular cleaning can help keep your shower head in top condition and prevent the need for costly repairs or replacements.

What You Need

To clean your shower head, you’ll need:

  • A plastic bag
  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • A rubber band

Step-by-Step Cleaning Guide

Step 1: Fill a Plastic Bag with Vinegar

Fill a plastic bag with white vinegar, enough to cover the shower head. Secure the bag to the shower head with a rubber band.

Step 2: Soak for 30 Minutes

Leave the plastic bag with vinegar on the shower head for 30 minutes. The vinegar will help dissolve mineral buildup, soap scum, and other deposits.

Step 3: Scrub with Baking Soda

Sprinkle baking soda over the shower head and gently scrub it with an old toothbrush. Baking soda is a mild abrasive that will help remove any remaining deposits.

Step 4: Rinse and Dry

Rinse the shower head thoroughly with water to remove any vinegar and baking soda residue. Dry the shower head with a soft cloth to prevent water spots.

Regular Cleaning

Regular cleaning is the key to keeping your shower head in top condition. Try to clean your shower head every three months, or as needed. If you have hard water, you may need to clean it more frequently.
