The Thrifty Apartment
Nothing is quite as refreshing as stepping into the shower to get ready in the morning. Or better yet, a shower to wash away the day’s activities. A shower offers a soothing respite from our daily routine. However, unlike other areas in your bathroom, the shower head gets the least amount of cleaning attention.
To ensure optimal performance and showering experience, it is essential to regularly clean your showerhead. Let me show you how to deep clean your shower head
Step 1 - Pour vinegar into a plastic bag or ziplock. Wrap the bag around the showerhead to fully encapsulate it and submerge the showerhead. Use elastic bands or duct tape to fasten and secure the bag
Step 2 - Allow the shower head to soak in the vinegar for at least 1-2 hours. For heavily clogged showerheads, you may want to leave the showerhead a little bit longer in the vinegar soak for the best results.
Step 3 - Use an old toothbrush and baking soda to scrub away at the surface, nozzle, and hard-to-reach areas of the shower head to remove the dirt.
Step 4 - Wipe down the showerhead and place it back on its base.
