Have you freshened up the shower drain? Well, it’s time to move on to the rest of the bathroom.
Summer is known to be a time for cleaning and evaluation, a bit like the beginning of the year with its resolutions, but more efficient. We did some analysis to see what you enjoyed most over the past few months, finding that a great many of you tried our tutorial guide to cleaning the shower head.
In this article, we will provide you with some methods that will help you to clean your shower head in a very easy way.
But let’s start with a basic premise: the shower head should be cleaned after each use (simply with water) and dried perfectly to avoid halos.
Clean the shower head and eliminate limescale.
To thoroughly clean the shower head, you need:
- White vinegar
- A plastic bag and rubber band, or a basin
- A needle
- A toothbrush
- A cotton cloth
Create a mixture of 50 percent cold water and 50 percent white vinegar, enough to cover the entire showerhead. Using hot water is not recommended, as it risks dulling the showerhead and ruining the plastic joints (if any).
If the showerhead is removable, soak it in the basin; if it is fixed to the wall, fill a plastic bag with the mixture, hang it over the showerhead and secure it with a rubber band. Let it soak for 1-2 hours, depending on how dirty the showerhead is.
Turn on the shower water faucet and drop the limestone, which will have “crumbled” with the vinegar-water solution.
If it doesn’t work, you can clean gently the limestone parts first with a damp cloth and then with an old toothbrush; if there are still occluded holes left, you can free them with a needle, being careful not to scratch the shower head.
